I was trying to make an avatar for my account, but unfortunately it scaled my photo down so small you can’t read the text on it anymore. I made it after watching parts of the Lord of the Ring marathon on the television network TNT.

Gandalf’s resolve was unshakeable, whom the actor portrayed extremely well- showing fear and dread, yet a unshakable determination, proclaiming, “You shall not pass!” I thought about how God could give unshakable boldness and courage, even against something so frightening, and so evil and powerful.

I had memorized this verse from the ESV Fighter Verses I purchased earlier in the year from DesiringGod.org. The entire passage I had memorized months ago was Psalm 62:5-8:

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my slavation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.”

Although I didn’t remember the verse completely, I still knew it was there and where to look for it. Even though my memory is shot, I’m glad the Holy Spirit still helps me remember.
