Psalm 91: 4-7

He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.

Sometimes it is so scary in our society with all the things we have going on, I want to encourage you today not to be afraid.

The Power of One
When I was a kid I use to walk to school. There was an elderly woman who sat on her front porch everyday on the path that I took, whom I use to stop and talk to on the way to school and on the way home. Sometimes, to be honest, I really didn't want to but I did because I felt so sad for her.

As we were talking one day she said,"Do you know you are the only person I talk to everyday?'

"You are the only one who has even bothered to stop and talk to me. Out of all the people I see walk past my sidewalk, no one stops. I just want to thank you for stopping."

I walked home that day knowing I had made a difference in someones life.

Just by stopping and talking for a few minutes.

Thank you for stopping by! What kind things you have to say. I like your story too. It's true, we don't always how we affect people.
