As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain your mercy from me;
your steadfast love and your faithfulness will ever preserve me!
~ Psalm 40:11
"Preserve": to prepare; a sphere of activity regarded as being reserved for a particular person or group
WOW! God is preserving His plan for me even as I fumble, preserving His path before me even as I struggle to find it, preserving His thoughts and dreams for me even though I question, preserving my joy even when I don't feel it - He is EVER working out what He has reserved for my good!
Joyful on this journey indeed :)
