Death, On a Walk Through Psalms

We must see death to fully appreciate life. For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks?  Psalms 6:5 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going….

Sin…We All Do It

Psalms 6:1-2      Please, Lord,     don’t punish me when you are angry;     don’t discipline me when you are furious. 2 Have mercy on me, Lord,     because I’m frail. Heal me, Lord,     because my bones are shaking in terror!  I sin everyday.  I try not to sin and try to do good; but none-the-less, sin, in…

Meeting Trump Along the Way

I continue my walk through the book of Psalms.  Imagine my surprise when I met one of the presidential candidates along the way!  As soon as I read Psalms 5:9, Donald Trump came to mind.  He seemed to resurface again in the book of Romans For there is nothing trustworthy or steadfast or truthful in their talk;…

Lord, I Need You

Lord, show me your right way of living,     and make it easy for me to follow. People are looking for my weaknesses,     so show me how you want me to live. Psalms 5:8 Dear Lord, here I am and here is my life. Fill me with a desire to follow you. Fill me with energy…

Fill us with Wonder

Because of your great mercy,     I come to your house, Lord, and I am filled with wonder as I bow down     to worship     at your holy temple. Psalms 5:7 For today’s scripture I wanted to find a lovely photo of a simple church surrounded by God’s beautiful nature.  I found many; but try as I…

Christian Meditation?

Psalms 5:1 I had a healthy fear of meditation.  Growing up Independent Fundamental Christian I was taught to fear many things, one being meditation.  I was taught to believe a transcendental state made the soul vulnerable to demonic possession.  I was also taught it impossible for a “true Christian”  to be demon possessed because their…

God is Listening

The Lord listens and heeds when I call to Him.   Psalms 4:3 I am always his child and He is always my Father. My Prayer:  Dear Lord, how comforting it is to know you’re only a whisper away. You invite us to come to you as little children…wide-eyed and filled with simple faith…knowing you love…

Daily Prayer

O sons of men, how long will my honor and glory be [turned into] shame? How long will you love worthless (vain, futile) things and seek deception and lies? Selah.  [God] Psalms 4:2 Mankind in his/her greed rapes God’s creation every day. My Prayer:  God, forgive us for destroying your beautiful world.  Mankind stands guilty…

Waiting on God

Walking Through the Book of Psalms Psalms 4 David was a writer and in that I find kinship. The more I read his writings the more I like the guy.  His work is poetically beautiful, but it is also brutally honest. David wasn’t afraid to question God.  He wasn’t afraid to complain to God.  He admitted…
