I almost didn’t do my quiet time today.. I just feel really unnerved, annoyed, maybe even angry. But God brought me here, and I’m very thankful.
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. (Psalm 146:1-2 ESV)
There an ongoing trend of sincere, happy, joyful Christians. They are putting out music, books, films – very creative and passionate people. It’s quite inspiring. This verse reminds me of them… and maybe who I was? Who I can be.
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. (Psalm 146:3-4 ESV)
Very timely for me. As the next verses say, my help and my hope is, and should be, on the Lord. Creator, Judge, Provider, Savior, Healer, Restorer, Protector and Defender.
