Chapter & Verse~Psalm 120:1

In my distress I cried to the Lord, and He heard me.

~Psalm 120:1 NKJV~

This is the second memory verse I’ve selected for my participation in the Living Proof Ministries project. It’s probably one that fits my life on most days. I have been in distress so many times and I’ve needed God’s help so very much. This verse is about being delivered from the damage done to us by a “lying tongue” and a deceitful tongue.

Selecting this verse was significant to me this time around because over the last year I’ve been struggling. As a Christian, as a woman, as a human being. So many battles and so many scars. It’s so comforting to know that when I call out to God, He hears me. No matter what has brought me to that place, He hears me.  And the same goes for you.  All you have to do is call on His name.

May God Bless You!

My name is Rebecca Benston. I’m a Christian. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a writer. I’m a thinker. When I write fiction, I am usually writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. My P.I. character, Rona Shively is feisty, fearless and fabulous and is usually caught up in something she doesn’t want to be caught up in. In addition to this series, I also have a blog called Higher Ground for Life. Through this blog, I’m hoping to reach women or anyone who is seeking to develop a relationship with God and give them inspiration to get out there and follow His path for their lives!
I also have a blog called Leading the Follower. This one is my favorite. I write about religion, faith, spirituality and all that goes along with it. What we believe, what we don’t believe, what we are told to believe and how society feels about believing in general. I do a lot of testifying here and some of what I say may make you angry. Most of it will make you think. Some of it will make you cry. Any of it could make you laugh. It’s really up to you.
