God's still working on me!

Well apparently God's not finished with me yet!
I went on church's website and just happened (not a coincidence) to run across Brandon's blog.
He had entered a post earlier in July talking about trials and he mentioned to read Psalm 30.
Well I'm going to post a portion of it because I feel like it was SHOUTING to me!

I will exalt you O Lord for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. O Lord you brought me up from the grave you spared me from going down into the pit.
Sing to the Lord, you saints of his, praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment but his favor lasts a lifetime, weeping may remain for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning.

This was so touching to me because I was struggling yesterday with the fear again (I know- I keep taking it back!) and I just prayed this morning that God would make Himself very real to me and that I would feel His presence and then I found Brandons blog- not a coincidence!!
Thank you God for not giving up on me and walking with me through the trials:
I'll leave with the sermon passage from Sunday:
Isaiah 43:2
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers they will not sweep over you. When you walk throught the fire; you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Interesting how this keeps coming up! I agree - it's not a coincidence. Great psalm.
