Hello, everyone. Today is Saturday, March the 11th? Saturday.

No, it won't upload. Is that right? Hold on, let me look. Oh, it is Saturday, for sure.

Saturday, March the 11th. It actually is. That's what it says. I'm confused, but we're moving forward.

Yeah, that's odd to me. I'm Ryan Hill. I'm John Galantis. And you're listening to Clearview Today with Dr. Abbadan Shah, the daily show that engages mind and heart for the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can visit us online at ClearviewTodayShow.com, or if you have any questions for Dr. Shah or suggestions for future episodes, send us a text at 252-582-5028, or you can email us at contact at ClearviewTodayShow.com.

That's right. And you guys can help us keep this conversation going by supporting the show, sharing it online, leaving us a good review on iTunes, Spotify, anywhere where you get your podcasting or radio content from. We're going to leave a couple of links in the description so you can do just that. I'm kind of confused because not only are we recording on a Saturday, but Dr. Shah is here in the intro. And there's also someone else here, someone who I feel like kind of has it in for me. I feel like I ran my mouth a lot yesterday.

You want to set it up for listeners who might not have heard yesterday's episode? Yeah. If you didn't hear Friday's episode, I read Mike S, who's been a big supporter of the show for a long time, sent in fan mail talking about peanut butter burgers. And I, for lack of a better term, went off. So now here we are. We have peanut butter. We have peanut butter burgers in front of us. Do you want to kind of just lay out how you've done this?

Like what all there is? Yeah. So basically... Oh yeah, sorry. There you go. You're good. Thank you. So basically, after hearing what you had said about burgers... Uh huh.

The insults that were hurled. I felt a little offended and I wanted to show you that I'm not crazy and that it is actually pretty tasty. So I've got two different types of burgers here. Two of the burgers that I've tried before different places.

One is going to be a peanut butter and banana and bacon burger, and the other is peanut butter and pepper jelly and bacon. And this is something that you eat regularly? Not regularly. I've had it, like I said, the places I've eaten these are local. When I do go back home to Ohio, that's where one of the spots is. And I was recently up there this last time and I got it and it was delicious.

Dr. Shaw, is this how you thought you'd be spending the afternoon? No, but I'm excited. I love trying new and different things. And I've been up north before and they have some quite some awesome things that we're missing out on.

We think all the good food is down south, but that's not necessarily the case. All right. I'm excited.

I'm excited. Yeah. Y'all want to, I guess, let's pray and dive in? Yeah, absolutely. Dr. Shaw, you want to bless the food for us?

Sure. Father, we thank you for this day. Thank you, God, for Clearview today, giving us such a gift that we can talk to the whole world from this little room right here.

And so, God, we pray that you would bless his food and Mike and all that he does and his family, Lord, you hand upon their lives. In Jesus' name. Amen. Amen.

Amen. All right. Well, I'm going to start passing out the buns.

Mike, you want to give us any instructions? So basically, I mean, the buns are toasted, but I would put... Yeah, they look good. All right. So I guess it depends on which burger you're going to try. There's crunchy peanut butter, which is supposed to be for the banana burger. Let's take one like this. Yeah.

Okay. And then there's just regular creamy peanut butter to go with the pepper jelly. Technically, this is hickory bacon that goes on your banana burger and then applewood bacon for the peanut butter jelly. I don't know which one I want.

Yeah, I'm going to go for the... It's creamy. That's the creamy. And also, I should say, if you're not watching the video episode, you are really, really missing out because there is a spread right here.

I wish we had like smell-o-vision, like you could smell what we're smelling. Dave, you want one, my friend? Thank you, sir. Come grab you one, Dave. I'll put my nasty hands all over the... I'm just marveling at the buns right now. They're just nice and toasted warm.

And how much do you put on there? So, okay, that was the other thing. I would recommend the peanut butter on the top bun.

Okay. And then on top of your actual patty, the more peanut butter... Okay, so on the top side. Yeah, the more peanut butter, the better. I'm going to dig into the peanut butter. I'm going to go for it. So, Mike, am I breaking the rules if I use the creamy peanut butter with the banana?

I mean, probably, but it's your show. I'm just not a huge fan of crunchy peanut, but I'll do it. I'll do it if it's better with it. I enjoy it. Okay.

I don't eat crunchy peanut butter normally. Here's what I'm... Well, then, you know what? Oh, no, not on top of that.

I'm going to trust you. Not on top of that? No, no, that's...

I messed up? Like the inside of the bun. Inside the top. Okay. Yeah, sorry.

I did do it inside. There's another... I think there's an extra bun. Okay, okay, okay.

My bad. You want to just give that one to David? Just flip it knees upside down. The normal side of the bun. Okay, yes. There you go. I'll let you in like, man, it's got to be like a doughnut.

Oh, no. Like on the top of the patty and then on like the top. Just cut it. Where you would put like your ketchup.

I got you. Now, here's the bacon right here. Which one is which, Mike? That, I think, is the hickory. Which goes with the banana.

So, okay. So peanut butter on the top bun. On the top bun and on the patty. And on the patty.

Okay. Put it on the patty. I'm going to leave that there.

Lather it up. And the buns are underneath. I'm sorry, the meat, the patties are underneath. Okay. All right. So I'm going to... While we're doing this, Dr. Shaw, do you want to kind of talk about how you and Mike S. here, we reference Mike S. a lot on the show because he's one of the, one of our number one supporters, always right again.

Even back when we were doing Carpet Bañana. Do you kind of want to talk about y'all's relationship? Like how y'all met? Sure.

Sure. So through a mutual friend, I'll just give the first name, Jason. We had the opportunity to meet and Mike was just beginning to grow in his faith in Christ.

And, and then right about that time, God called Jason to head in a different direction. And so he left and Mike and I kept meeting and kept spending time together. And, you know, he was of course coming to Clearview Church and, and, and I saw something in Mike that was very unique. It was, it was like, he truly genuinely wanted to follow Christ. And sure. Thank you.

And that pretty much what was the source of our friendship is that he genuinely wanted to follow Jesus Christ because sometimes, you know, people do that as long as there's a friend around, but not with him. And I, and I felt like this is a real deal. Yeah.

And I, and of course time has proven that it is a real thrill. Nine years ago, I think. That's right. Wow. That's right. Yeah.

Wow. What, what kind of brought you to that place, Mike? Um, I had a big life change, uh, relationship wise and, uh, ended up pretty much starting, uh, starting my life over from kind of scratch. And, uh, that low point pretty much brought me that, I mean, that was honestly my, I guess my point of salvation is when I was at that low point and didn't really know what else to do.

And that's pretty much as, uh, as, you know, pastor Shaw says, and when he's talking about it in services, like, Hey, I don't know everything, I don't know really what I'm doing. Just, I need something else. Yeah. I need something for you to take over and kind of fix where I'm at.

Fix my life. Yeah. Wow. That's where it started.

That's insane. I love that. Um, you know, just that, that hope that comes, that it's never, it's never too late. That's never, you know, it's never so far gone. It's never, you know, never too much of anything that you can't have that hope, that renewal because of the gospel, because of what Jesus has done for us.

Yeah. There's, there's always, there's always something new and we find that in God's mercy, but I mean, even coming to that point for the first time, there's really nothing like it. You know, you, you start to understand your need for God. We were talking, you know, Dr. Shaw, you know, this, this past week, we were talking about the, um, about our praise team retreat.

And we came to that point where it's like, you know, God's power is full and free and it's unlimited, but he's never, it's all, it's somehow connected to how much we acknowledge that we need it. Right. Right. So then, then we have here. Oh, the pepper jelly.

Pepper jelly. I like that. It's good. Yeah. Okay.

So, and this goes somewhere here? Yeah. Probably. Yeah. On that part.

The top side? Yeah. Okay. All right. David, did you get a patty and bacon yet? Not yet. Here. I got you, man.

Ryan needs a patty. Yeah. Yeah.

I just washed mine as well. I need a knife. You need that knife? Here you go. I need, I need, well, I don't want to mess up the, there's, I mean, if you want to, I think everyone's already peanut buttered. So if you want to wipe, wipe this one off, wipe it off with it. Okay.

There's a paper towel, right? I accidentally, sorry. I was trying to hit you the not sticky side. Dave, come here, buddy. Oh, there you go. You got one too. Yeah. Dave, I gave it. Oh, you did.

All right. You want some bacon, my friend? Here. Who doesn't want bacon? Yeah.

I was about to say, is that a trick question? Does anyone's like, yeah, no, I'm actually final bacon. And then Ryan and Mike, if you want some bacon right here. Yeah.

I saw a thing the other day that said, yeah, somebody, let me say something. My neighbor told me a recipe with leftover bacon. And I was like, what leftover bacon? What is that?

What is that? How do you leave bacon? I don't understand. All right. I've got the others right here. I'm okay. So let me just while everybody else is still getting there. So we've got let's do that banana.

No, yeah, go for it. There's another banana right there if anybody wants it. Okay. So mine has the buns are very nicely toasted. I'm not gonna lie.

It makes a difference. Yeah, yeah, we've got a toasted bun, peanut butter on the bun, banana, peanut butter on top of the Patty, the Patty itself, bacon. And then I actually put peanut butter on the bottom bun because I'm like, if I'm going to do this, we got to just go all out.

Like pass me one of those patties there. My friend. I sure will. There you go. That's one left. Yeah, man. And then there's some bacon right here. Dark chef. You didn't get any good. Oh, mercy. I think we ready. Here you go, man.

Crunchy or creamy. You going all out all of the above. All right. So you get saved, Mike, you get saved and you start coming to Cleve church immediately after after that. Yeah, I believe it was because I had been talking because I worked with Jason and I kind of him in another employee of ours. A lot of time at shift change with would talk and I just would listen just there because you know, we got last 45 minutes of shift. Nobody, you know, everyone's kind of cleaning up, getting ready to go. It's just time to hang around and talk unless something else happens. It's I would listen. And a lot of times I'd walk out. They still be talking at it. All right, guys.

We'll pray for me. I'm out. Yeah.

But you were in law enforcement already before that. Okay. Okay. And so, you know, hearing them talk and how much they knew and are passionate about it kind of, I guess, impressed me.

Yeah. I don't know if that's the right word, but so I started, you know, taking as much as I could. And then when that kind of happened, like Jason was one of the first people I call and I say, dude, I matter of fact, that first night I called him. I say, I need a place to crash. And he let me he let me crash at his house. And then it was like, Hey, you know, I'm gonna introduce you to somebody of this church.

And I think we all, I don't know if we all went or I just met pastor Shaw, but and then there was also right around the time that first men's conference, a few months later, I was in the first men's conference. He was like, Hey, you should come. And I was like, all right.

So I showed up and he was like, Hey, sorry, I can't make it. And I was like, but I still went in. Yeah. Yeah. And I was like, all right.

You know, and like you said, I was kind of just trying to go all in. That was very impressive to me that, you know, Jason was the main person behind this and he unfortunately couldn't go. But instead of saying, I'm sorry, I'm out too.

Mike was like, no, I'm going to go. Yeah. Yeah. Cause you tend to think that I'll go as long as it's safe or I'll go as long as there's some, you know, there's something kind of connecting me to not necessarily my old life, but what's familiar and it's, and being completely in a new place and being completely like, I don't really don't know any of these people, but I believe in this gospel so much, this new gospel that I really don't know much about. I still believe in it so much.

I'm willing to go. I definitely took a step of a step of faith. And then we, time and again, Mike and I would have lunch together. And of course, Jason sort of moved away.

He was, you know, God called him in a different kind of ministry. And so he moved along and then Mike and I would just keep meeting and there was, there was another person there too, but it was mostly us. Wow. Yeah.

That's really awesome. Well, if everybody's ready, I guess we'll, we'll take the first bite. I'm so scared. We're waiting for this. Oh, all right. A bunch of trash talks coming back at me.

Three, two, one. I don't know what to think. I'm actually impressed. You like it?

I like it. There's so many different flavors. It's like, my mind doesn't know where to focus.

I know it's very good. I'm trying to chew in the microphone. Yeah, I know.

Right. This is a terrible radio. Horrendous and David Deers. I'm so sorry, David. How do you like it, Dave?

I don't have a knife to spread my peanut butter. Oh, here, man. Here, here, here. Okay. So this is good. Yeah.

Yeah. It's not bad. I will say that I feel like I can eat the entire thing and be happy. I feel like the first thing I taste is banana. The first thing I taste is banana, then I taste peanut butter. Then I taste burger. Then I taste bacon. And it's like where my focus is shifting. It's odd, but it's good. It's not bad, but I definitely something different. Yeah. What made you think of this?

So I didn't come up with it by any means. Like I said, the first time I had one, I was in training in South Carolina and I knew a friend of mine lived in Charleston and I was there for a week. And I got, you know, I said, Hey, I'm going to be down in Charleston. You want to meet up sometime? And he's like, yeah.

So naturally you trust the guy that lives there. And I was like, where's a good place to eat. So he's like, just Sesame, Sesame burgers and brew. I think is what it was called. So I just met him up there.

And you know, I was a friend from high school. We were talking for a while and on the menu, they had sliders, like was an option. So I didn't go full on and just order a peanut butter burger with no backup plan.

Cause you could mix and match your slider. So I got, so you didn't grow up eating this. No, not at all. This is, but this is in Ohio though. So one of them, one of the burger spots is in Ohio.

The first time I had it was in Charleston. Oh, but are you from Ohio? I was, I was raised there. Oh, I was born in Connecticut. Then I grew up in Ohio.

Okay. But, um, so the first time I had it was in Charleston and like I said, you could order three sliders. So I got a peanut butter banana slider to try cause peanut butter and banana and bacon all sounded good.

So, so that was when I first had it and I figured I had two sliders as a backup. And then it was just something I thought was neat. And then when I saw it on the menu in Ohio, I was kind of like, Hey, I haven't had a peanut butter burger in a while. So I'll try theirs.

And it was also good. I haven't had this in a while. Yeah. I'll try it.

What I like about this is that it doesn't like with the ketchup and mustard, it hits you hard, you know, you know exactly you're having a burger here. It doesn't do that. It doesn't do that. Yeah. Yeah. It's it. I agree.

It doesn't take much more subtle. There's a, there's, it's a sandwich for sure. But like the meat, I don't like taste meat immediately. Yeah. Unless it's the bacon, but the bacon is crunchy.

I will say, I think you did great on the bacon cause I love crispy bacon. Let me get one of the bananas there. Yeah, man. You want a banana here? A ketchup.

There's half of this one left. That's fine. Here you go. So Dr. Shah, you meet Mike and you go to the men's conference and how does the relationship go from there? Especially with you being like a chaplain with the police department and everything. How does that, how does that relationship kind of foster itself between like law enforcement, chaplaincy, the church?

Yeah. So already I was a chaplain with the Henderson PD. So I was spending time with police officers and kind of listening to them. You know, people don't realize how being an officer is unlike anything else you do in life.

I mean, it's, it's a whole different kind of work. You know, some people go to work and they're like, man, I'm going to do some good today. You know, and law enforcement goes into work. Of course, we're going to do something good today by stopping the bad guy, the bad person doing something bad today. This may be a situation where I may have to use force.

This may be a situation I may have to talk this person down, but it, there may be some aggression involved. So I better be ready. I better be ready physically. I better be ready mentally, emotionally. I gotta be in the right frame of mind.

I mean, it's unlike anything you do. Yeah, that's a great point because it's not a matter of like, I'm going to go and make this, this positive contribution, although it is a positive contribution. It's, you know, we're going to stop all the bad. We get, we get to handle all the bad, everything wrong that people are doing. We get that, especially in America, in the past, you know, few years, the good guys are the bad guys. The bad guys are the good guys, kind of weird, you know, a configuration going on or reconfiguration happening where you're trying to do something good, but then, then, then people come along and say, oh, you're the bad guy. You're, you're, you're doing this and that wrong. Right.

So already in a world of cameras everywhere, world, everything has changed. So my heart goes out to law enforcement, especially because my own grandfather, my dad's dad was, was in law enforcement. He was a police commissioner. Wow.

Yeah. My dad was a police kid. So, you know, always have that soft spot towards them because, you know, it is, it has so much pressure and these guys don't complain about it, which is great, but overall so much pressure. I can't imagine that.

I cannot imagine that. Now you can compare that to military personnel. It's a whole different kind of pressure, right? It is pressure.

There's a different kind of pressure because military personnel, you're on a foreign soil most of the time. And so everybody coming along, you know, against you, you know, these are foes. I have my friends behind me, these are foes.

So I need to know how to relate with them, how to work with them, whatever. But in law enforcement, it's not just about people coming against you or foes. It could be friends or foes. So now you have to discern to make sure who is who and how do you deal with this? How do you deal with this and it's not just that, oh, you know, I wasn't sure if that person had a gun or not. No, you don't know what they're thinking. So one person may be thinking, hey, I'm so glad the officer is here on site. I'm so glad that he is here in this situation.

But what if that person is thinking, oh, no, I'm going to stand up for this bad guy right here and fight against this officer. I mean, it's all so you got to keep all that in mind as you're approaching the situation. I'm doing all the talking. But Mike, what do you think?

No, you're doing great. I mean, you pretty much hit the nail on the head as far as, you know, like you said with the military reference where most of the time they know who they're dealing with is bad. And that's up for us to determine that. And I think that's where a lot of the issues arise sometimes is, yeah, we're dealing with somebody that is good.

We don't know that they get probably, you know, they take it as a problem of us trying to figure that out. Right. And then that just leads to tempers flaring and things going bad that really didn't need to if we could just get the initial contact out of the way of what's going on. Right. Do you ever find it difficult or challenging to reconcile like your faith with like the ugly reality of like the real world or does it actually or do you find that it kind of brings the faith more alive, if that makes sense? Yeah. So I think sometimes it works both ways. Man, you know, a lot of times I feel like I guess the faith helps in that aspect, but other times it's, you know, sometimes the most Christian thing to do in a situation is maybe not the best, you know, procedure. Right. You know, again, like somebody steals because they need, you know, or whatever, you know, situations they have, you know, Christian may be like, oh, I can let me find a way. Yeah, sure. By law, this is what I need, you know.

No, I understand completely. Yeah. And the funny story one time is we had a guy, I won't say his name, but he was a problem for us begging people for money all the time, got calls all the time. He caught me coming out of the store one time. I had just bought something for my wife for Valentine's day. And he was like, hey, let me get some money.

I'm trying to get something for Valentine's. He said, man, I know you, man, you're a good cop, man, just help. And I was like, if I give you money, it really makes me a bad cop. Yeah. I'm, you know, kind of contributing to the problem that we have. But I ended up, you know, I gave him something, but it's, you know, from the Christian standpoint, hey, if you can help somebody, I'll help you. Yeah.

That makes sense. It's funny because we typically think of them as two worlds. You know, we've got the church where everything is safe and we're privileged.

And we have these amazing, like, kind of like we say all the time, we've got these lights and we've got air conditioning and we've got a place where we can come and worship freely. And we tend to think of the real world, I put that in quotes as this dark, scary place where people do drugs and hurt people. And I think both are true in their own aspects, but there's a lot of middle where life kind of happens in between. And I know that's something that you typically talk about is that life is a very messy thing. It's not the caricatures that we painted out to be, whether it's in the church or whether it's out there in the harsh realities of the world. We tend to think in extremes, but life happens somewhere in the middle.

Right. And that's something that's encouraged me to think about that life is messy and complicated. And that doesn't necessarily mean you're doing a bad job. Well, and I'm sorry, I've got food in my mouth. No, it's all good. But I'm loving the burger, by the way. That's the danger of doing an episode like this. No, I know there's another option to making burgers. I'm excited about this.

I'm loving it. Your own uncle was a police officer right here in this town. That's true.

Yeah, that's true. He was a detective with the Henderson Police Department. And that's something that kind of precedes him, not precedes him, but has lived on after him is that people know that. People typically don't know my dad at all because my uncle was so popular and so kind of influential through being a detective with the police department. They're always like, so you're Charlie's son. Like, no, no, I'm not. They're like, OK, you're Chuck. You're Chuck's son. No, I'm not.

It's not me. But it's kind of like you said that that is something that has stuck and made an impact in people's lives. And that's one of the things that law enforcement, when it's done right, man, you really can make an impact in the community. It's not just, hey, we're keeping the law. We're keeping people from doing bad things. You're impacting and helping people's lives. Absolutely. And obviously, if we could do that all the time, but there's a lot of problems that come up and somebody's got to help take care of them.

Yeah, absolutely. We are thankful for what you do and for your service. I mean, and we're also thankful for the burgers. Yeah, I ate the whole thing just so people can see. I ate the whole thing. I'm proud of you.

Thank you, man. I was scared. I'm not going to lie. But none of it was bad. Like, it didn't overall taste bad. It was something where I was like, now I taste a lot of banana.

So I'm all marinating that for a little bit. Now they're here comes the peanut butter. I didn't expect it to come in waves because I've been into it. And first thing I've tasted was banana.

I was like, that was kind of interesting. And then the peanut butter comes in. I'm curious as to what it would be like if I'd done like the pepper jelly. I mean, I can't even I'm full.

Personally, it is good. I'm going to make this. You're going to make it. Oh, yeah, nice. Of course, there's nothing other than just making sure you have peanut butter, pepper jelly, bananas and bacon. Yeah.

So I'm going to have this option next time we have our staff cooking. I like it. I actually like it really good.

And I love the ones with just ketchup and mustard. But it usually hits hard. It's a certain taste, and it hits hard. I love it. Yeah. But I like the subtlety.

This is it's something different. The subtlety of the peanut butter. Look at that.

Look at that. Yeah, that's that's a good burger. I would eat more, but it's just that I want to talk.

Try not to stuff with the burger and the peanut butter in your mouth. It's like I was texting. I was texting Mike last night. We kind of had to kind of put it together kind of quickly to make it happen today.

But I was texting him last night and I was like, bro, I'm scared. And he sent me a picture of his wife just being like, see, Jennifer likes it, man. She likes a happy place. When I was leaving to come over here with the burgers, I had eight burgers. And I was figuring, you know, six, six burgers. I was going to have some extra. So you're going to cook all those there or you're going to leave any of them?

I might have two extras. She'll leave one. And I took our peanut butter and I said, do you need peanut butter? She was like, yeah, okay. Well, let's just say this. She's an answer to prayer.

I used to go in and eat out with Mike all the time, but I was getting tired of that. I'm like, no, I'm just kidding. I'm just kidding. But we just pray. God sent the right person into your life and God did at the right time. And, you know, we have a certain idea of who we want. Thank God. He knows better what we need. And God gave you exactly the help, help meat that you needed.

And, you know, she came into his life and we stopped eating out as much. Once in a while, we would still do that. We still do it.

We did it last year. But, you know, she understands the job. Of course, there are parts of it that are frustrating because both of y'all are in sort of, you know, high energy work, but still, she gets it and it's supportive to you, you know?

100%. Like Sage, I mean, she's a nurse and I think that, I think naturally cops and nurses are kind of drawn to each other. It's because, like you said, they, the shift work, nobody sees us on their best day. And that's the big thing is anytime people interact with us, I mean, they're not, they don't call us because we're doing wonderful.

Just want to see you today. That's a good point. I never thought of that. So we're used to that. And that's why a lot of times I think our reaction to things, our family, when they see our reaction to certain things, they're like, what's wrong with you guys? It's like, it's kind of normal. It's really not that bad. Yeah.

That's a good point. Yeah. Wow. Let's just, so it, like you said, she understands and she is, she picks up in my, my weaknesses.

She's strong. God, God, it was the right timing. Yeah. And it's really kind of, because when I had that change in my relationship before that started, the big question was, all right, are you moving back to Ohio? I remember that. Cause I, I didn't, you know, at that point there was nothing here other than my job. And I said, well, I've kind of established myself in this job and kind of started my own thing.

So I'm just going to stay here. And it wasn't, but a few months later. Yeah. And it's more than just the fact that she works in as a first responder or as a nurse. I think it's just her personality is such that, you know, you need someone like that.

Like for me, Nicole is the right personality to be with. And I think same thing happened with you and Jennifer. Definitely. And so that's, that's the answer to prayers. Amen.

Amen. And I'll say too, Jennifer, I'm sorry I ran my mouth. I think in addition, I'm not, cause we got peanut butter burgers in addition to eating the burger today. I think I ate some crow. David, how'd you like it, man? You've been strangely quiet. I mean, it was, it was pretty good. Yeah. He's a mouthful man.

My plate is completely clean. Oh, look at that. Did you try one, man? You did try one. You try one after the podcast. Yeah.

You have to try one left. Yeah. Cool. That's awesome. Well, this was a good, this was a good day, Mike. I was wrong.

Burger was pretty good. Not a problem. So for the benefit of, for all those who are listening, how, how can we sort of bring some connection here? Psalm 91. Psalm 91 is usually considered by law enforcement or first responders or military, you know, as one of their favorite Psalms. Can I read that? Yeah, go for it.

Let's do it. So it says Psalm 91, he who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord, he is my refuge and my fortress. My God in him, in him I will trust. Surely he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with his feathers and under his wings, you shall take refuge. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side and 10,000 at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look and see the reward of the wicked because you have made the Lord who is my refuge, even the most high, your dwelling place.

And I can go on and on, but I want you to just think about that Psalm 91, such a powerful verse when you're walking through that valley, the dark alley, and you know God is with you, protecting you, giving you the sense of awareness, discernment.
