Funny how the LORD works... Lately, there have been way too many rumors and gossip about me in my town. This morning as I was reading the bible, I came across the verse in Psalms 41 that talks about this very thing.....


4 “O Lord,” I prayed, “have mercy on me.
Heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
5 But my enemies say nothing but evil about me.
“How soon will he die and be forgotten?” they ask.
6 They visit me as if they were my friends,
but all the while they gather gossip,
and when they leave, they spread it everywhere.
7 All who hate me whisper about me,
imagining the worst.
8 “He has some fatal disease,” they say.
“He will never get out of that bed!”
9 Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely,
the one who shared my food, has turned against me.

10 Lord, have mercy on me.
Make me well again, so I can pay them back!
11 I know you are pleased with me,
for you have not let my enemies triumph over me.
12 You have preserved my life because I am innocent;
you have brought me into your presence forever.

13 Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who lives from everlasting to everlasting.
Amen and amen!


See even though Im not perfect, God still loves me (us). He has written in his word EVERYTHING we can ever go through in our lives. Right down to the gossipy people around us.

So, next time you hear of someone spreading vicious rumors about you, just remember that God has it all in his hands and in his own plan for your life. He understands what we go through, and loves us enough to defend us when we need to be defended.
