Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: He Sets Me Free

 In my distress I prayed to the Lord,
and the Lord answered me and set me free.
(Psalm 118:5)

I love how the Lord not only hears me when I call to Him, but He both answers and sets me free.  He promises to free me from pain and worry, and from the distress that keeps me from living a life full of joy in His presence.  Thank you Lord, that You hear the cry of my anxious heart.  Thank you for your promise to answer me.  Thank you for setting my heart free.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!
