Today's Scripture: "The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Ps 34:7"

Safe at home
I don't play baseball anymore nor do I miss it. But it was an entirely different story when I was growing up. I'm not certain if my enjoyment was the competitive side of the game or the comradery of my buddies. Today, both my buddies and my love for the game are gone. Now that might be because all my children were girls and I wasn't blessed with a sports-centered male child. That being said, life is like a game in that you must obey the rules to win.
Psalm 34 reminds me that God protects me when I fall and even when I fail. I can testify that I didn't always throw a pitch with my foot touching the mound plate and more than once I failed to touch a base on my way to home plate. I can't see the angels that God says I have around me, but I feel His presence and that makes me bold. But it also makes me want to stay within the boundaries of Scriptural admonition. In doing so, I have freedom to challenge death, hell and the grave knowing that because Jesus has won, so have I.
Open my eyes that I might see glimpses of truth you have for me.
