This verse became a 'way mark' in my life, it was one of the first verses I learned: from Psalm 125:
'They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.'
I kept that verse on my dresser for over 20 years. When the father of my children left me and I remained single for almost a decade raising my kids, it brought me great comfort to know that that while man may not be faithful God always is. It reminded me of how temporary the things of this life are and how enduring the Love of God is. It reminded me that by trusting God I could never be removed from His love and that He would never leave or forsake me, that love was both around and in me.
I think of those verses and I am struck with the agelessness of the Creator, and the whisper of time my own mortality occupies. I was not there when those mountains were set round about Jerusalem, and after a few moments when I am gone, they will still be there, holding and protecting future generations.
I invite you to think about this verse in your life. Are you as Mount Zion, safe in the center of His care, His will? If you aren't pick up your bible and turn to PS 125 and ask the Lord to become that real to you and find your self embraced in His love. His love that is ageless and stronger than mountains.
I made this freebie for you today, to use in your art work or maybe to frame and put on your dresser.
I pray God Bless you richly meeting your needs above and beyond your hopes!
Thanks for stopping by,

Ginny, I loved this, yes, like you and many other women who's story I hear when ministering that being left with children to raise alone this verse is so perfect. Thank you for sharing it. Hugs, Cathy
Beautiful! I'm so glad you lean fully on the Lord's promises! It's gives my heart joy to hear about it! xoxo Jen
You write so beautifully! I was encouraged to hear how you had no church to attend but still trusted in God. As you know we have not attend a church for many years and as a result I have backslidden. Maybe God wants me to learn to seek Him on my own... beautiful graphic and verse. Thank you so much for this! You are indeed a real blessing. xx
