Just What I Needed To Hear…..

Psalm 138:3

As soon as I pray, you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me strength.

I love this verse.


Because so many times when I come to the Lord in prayer, the answers that I so deeply desire are not truly the ones I need or that God can even give.

For example, stress in my life may not be taken away until I have completed certain tasks. Seeing Nick again will not happen until the day I enter Heaven. Seeing a friend or family member come to know Jesus as their personal Savior may still take more time and prayer.

But God does promise this:


Truthfully, that’s all I really need most the time.

Just a little encouragement to keep on keeping on!

Thank you, Lord, for this short but sweet and powerful verse that I read yesterday in my quiet time.

You know just what I need when I need it!

Praying that all of you will be encouraged today,

  1. Hi Tammy,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. As I read your comment, I was reminded of your great saddness–the loss of two children. I can’t even imagine. Thank you for using your suffering to bring glory to God–you do, you know.

    As I was reading, I felt the Spirit’s whisper, “ask her to share her hope.”
    You see, I’m writing a new book on hope. I’d love to include your story of hope. Would your prayerfully consider this? YOu can reach me at miccacamppbell@comcast.net

    thank you, and God bless,
