Another Fun Trip & Song

We went on a fun trip to the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park and the Pinnacle Overlook where we could see 3 states from up above. We stayed in Kentucky for the night and visited an old iron forge and the area of Martin Station (we did not tour the actual settlement). We also went to an Abraham Lincoln museum. We ate some tasty food at Webb's Country Kitchen (that had an impatient rude waitress) and Haymaker Farms Restaurant (that had a forgetful but very nice waitress) besides food from the Dairy Queen and overeating some the hotel breakfast. I may share some photos of the trip on here to the side. Here is a very nice worship song I wanted to share with a young girl singing it...cute!

Refuge and Strength in Troubled Times

Here are some verses I read today that it is good for me to be reminded of:
"God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though
the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into
the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.
(Psalm 46:1-3)
I do struggle with fear and anxiety, so I need to be reminded to give all of these things to God. I can't do a thing to change some things except to pray and remember the good things God has done before. He will help us even if the earth falls apart and the people go beserk....which seems to be happening at times these days. He's always taken care of our needs, and He has given help to endure and even better at times to have praise and a feeling of hope during difficult times.
It's nice to know His strength is made perfect in our weakness, because I'm sure a weakling!
