Hello sisters and brothers in Christ.
My name is Courtnay Laws. The picture above is with one of my favorite people, my nephew. The picture below is with two of my closest friends. I work and live in Greenville, South Carolina. I practice Real Estate Law with my father, Terry. We own a boutique law firm in downtown Greenville. I serve on the board of directors for Switch, a Christian 501(c)3 non-profit organization that fights human trafficking in the Upstate of South Carolina. I am recently single after a long relationship and engagement. I was the stray sheep that Jesus had to hunt down (we're talking several pastures over and crossing some streams). About four years ago, Krista Smith invited me to a Bible Study at her home. I’ve never been the same since, and I’m so glad! I can’t wait share my thoughts and to hear from you all as well. Please join me on my faith journey with your comments and questions. As my friend Theresa Gardner says, “We are all just walking each other home.”
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
