Sweet Sunday Scripture: What God will do for each of us!

Be merciful and gracious to me, O God,
be merciful and gracious to me,
for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You;

yes, in the shadow of Your wings
will I take refuge and be confident
until calamities and destructive storms are passed.

I will cry to God Most High,
Who performs on my behalf
and rewards me
[Who brings to pass His purposes for me
and surely completes them]!

He will send from heaven and save me
from the slanders and reproaches
of him who would trample me down or swallow me up,
and He will put him to shame.

Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

God will send forth His mercy and loving-kindness
and His truth and faithfulness.

Psalm 57:1-3 (Amplified)
