Firm Steps

"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him...If the Lord delights in His daughter's way, He makes her steps firm; though she stumble, she will not fall, for the Lord upholds her with His hand."
Psalm 37:3-7a, 23-24

Such a comforting passage...Sometimes I'm scared of falling...of getting so far from God that I can't find Him when I need Him...of only looking for Him when I do need Him...of thinking I don't need Him. It is such a relief to know the cure for this:

Be still before the Lord.
