New International Version (NIV)
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Pictures of lovely young ladies in fields are so romantic, but after living in Texas, I want to protest, "What about the chiggers? Fire ants? Have you got sun screen and bug spray? Is this going to get you all stuffed up?" Distractions can make it so hard to still a soul. Today my own soul wasn't still, distracted by aches and pains both physical and emotional. I've found it easier to turn on the television than open my Bible. Sigh. God loves me yet. I'm also pretty sure there won't be any no-see-ums in his green pastures.
