Yet you are he who took me from the womb; you made me trust you at my mother's breasts. On you was I cast from my birth, and from my mother's womb you have been my God. Be not far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help.
Lord, I am so far from that immediate response, "Not my will, but Yours be done." And when I do get there, it is the result of a battle within my spirit to yield to You. Help me, Lord, guide me, Holy Spirit, to trust You completely and to live my life on the basis that You will be my shield and my buckler.
