The LORD a Fortress in Adversity

In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness …. Bow down Your ear to me ….  Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth …. I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, For You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities, and have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; … My times are in Your hand; ….. Do not let me be ashamed, O LORD, for I have called upon You; … Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men! Blessed be the LORD, For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!  For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried out to You. Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD.
                                                                                                                                                        Psalm 31                     This  is Anthony a few weeks before this trip he was attacked in Downtown Minneapolis his artery was severed he told me his story of  a near-death experience I saw in his face that he experienced something that change his life, he loves the Book of Psalms here he is reading the Prayer of the day, Psalm 31, and I can literally see his spirit eating it up. Jesus said “I am the bread of life”  and “The resurrection and the life” Oh give thanks to the LORD! for He is good!  for His mercy endures forever.!

When you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?”     Isaiah 58:7                                                                                                                                                                                     I saw this beautiful building during one of our trips, my heart is always on a house of prayer so naturally I thought  ‘this would make a good house of prayer’  I asked around and found out a man came and built it for ‘the dead’ a funeral home, as long as I can remember we have never had a funeral home on the reservation, I also heard he wasn’t making much money so he put it up for sale, no one on our reservation has one hundred thousand dollars, so it just sat there, one day back in August 2015 I was praying and Jesus said ‘ask for it’ just like that!  I got so excited I began praying daily, for this building then this year the Rosebud Sioux Tribe purchased it, and this winter during the below zero weather it was open for the homeless, Oh Jesus ‘My Cup overflows!!!” Thus says the LORD GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live” this is our our first trip to ‘Cante Waste Oyate Home’ that’s  good heart peoples home in Lakota.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Praise the Lord! O My soul, while I live I will praise the LORD!

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.

 It is the people of my reservation that taught me as a child reverence for a Holy God, the creator of heaven and earth and everything in it, it was watching them, listening to their very, very humble prayers, we were all one, all in agreement as our elder cried out to the Holy One for mercy, that is just the way it always was, I love my reservation, and I am not ashamed to ask You anyone, reading this, to pray for us.

And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
