I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.

I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.– Psalm 130:6 (NIV)

Patience is a virtue or so they say. It is a quality that I certainly don’t practice very well. Like this Psalm I feel like I’m always waiting for the next answer to the problem, the next song on the radio and the next day. I never want to live in the present. It is that waiting that the psalmist captures but rather a waiting for God.

What am I waiting for God to do? For Christ to return to Earth? For God to answer my prayers? For a miracle to happen? It all returns to patience. Whatever you are longing for God to do, have patience. He will answer you. It may not be the answer you are looking for but it will be His answer for you. And I’ve found that when God’s answer to my prayers is “no” then He has something greater in store that I’m not aware of yet.

A Journey through Psalms

Standard

After bible study this evening, I realized that I new nothing about psalms. I believe that I have heard many of the verses in set to song but these deep and personal words of lamentations and joys is something that I am going to explore over the next few months or so. One by one, day by day. And where better to start that with Psalm 1.

Good vs. evil.

Stay near the Lord and be righteous for you will stand and prosper. The wicked will not in judgement.

I give thanks…Day 2

Standard

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 chronicles16:34

I give thanks for love. Love from God. Love from my fiance, Scott. Love from my parents. Love from my friends. Without love, what is the point of life? The world is sometimes too hard to bare; full of judgement and injustice. The only true consolation is love. God’s love is everywhere. And that is all we need.
