I Sought the Lord

I remember when I was in the fifth grade, our church was having a special day for our Christian school. Since I attended the school, I was asked to give a short testimony during the Sunday evening service. Boy, I hated this idea. I did not want to stand in front of all those people and tell a little about my testimony and what the school meant to me.

I wrote out what I wanted to say and began practicing it. All week, I worked on the “speech.” It was not until Saturday evening that the FEAR set in. My Momma gave me a verse to claim. She explained this verse to me and I was happy to know that there was a verse in the Bible that dealt with what I was about to have to face on the following evening.

The verse that I claimed that night and still do to this day, when I have fears that come my way was -

Psalms 34:4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
