Aliens and Widows

This morning I (Steph) read Psalm 146. I was encouraged by vs. 9 which says, "The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow." Right now, I am an alien. I look like an alien, and I definitely feel like an alien too. This verse tells me that God is watching over me in particular. I knew God was watching over me, but this verse puts me in a different category, He is watching over me in the same way that he is watching over and sustaining the fatherless and the widow. I thought of our house helper Miriam who is a widow and her children who are fatherless, this verse covers all of us. What an encouragement. "Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God." Psalm 146:5
