Reading the words of Psalm 119:137-144 this morning. The words reminded me of something I read in the only letter I have that was written by my Great Grandmother to her son. In it she wrote: ‘God is slow but sure’.

I would tweak that and say ‘God can be slow, but He is indeed sure’.

Perhaps, like me, you might also be in need of this reminder today.

Righteous are you O Lord Psalm 119
