Psalm 91: The Shelter of the Most High

I stay close to the side of Jesus
I stand in His presence
He is my safe haven
He is my shelter
I trust in Him

He will deliver me from my troubles
From enemies, sickness and death
He will cover me with His hands
I will be safe with Him
He is the Faithful One

When I am afraid
When I am harassed
When others may fall into temptation and sin
But I will be safe in Him
He is my Guard

I will still sometimes be hurt
I will still have problems over problems
Just hold fast to my love for Christ
He will deliver me, He will protect me
He is my Owner

Call to Him, He will answer
Call to Him, He is here
He will save me
He will honour me
He is my Salvation

I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. Ecclesiastes 2:13
About 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 2004, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages . God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].
