The LORD is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
I have not written in awhile because I have been tied up with summer courses through the University of Arkansas. I was enrolled in Visual Web Design taught by Professor Hapgood, Human Resources Work Development taught by Mandel Samuels, Social Work taught by Michael Collie and World Literature taught by Professor Beigi and Professor Clark. These classes total up to 12 hours. Along with that I managed to wake up and work the Little Rock Rivermarket on Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. On top of that I had the opportunity to work with the most amazing campers and staff for two weeks directed by 2014's 3A-State Championship's Coach, Coach Micah Marsh. There were many days I woke up not wanting to go to work or write a research paper or study for my summer courses. It was my faith in God that kept me strong through the many days of dought. Yes it was difficult, but anything is possible. You must believe in God and you must believe in yourself. Everyone can believe in you but it doesn't mean anything if you do not believe in yourself.
The scripture above spoke words to a text-reader like myself. I began to memorize Psalms 9:9 and slowly I began understanding the text. You see, The Lord will always be a warm and cozy" for the "oppressed." It is when The Lord is needed most. A simple definition from Google Definitions is something subjected to hard and authoritarian treatment. We all go through tough and difficult time. We must bare life. You will go from side-rope to side-rope fighting head-to-head with life; Be strong and courageous. I know for a fact this Summer has had troubling days but my faith and belief helped carry me each and everyday.
