I love Psalm 27!
I had a wonderful meditation this morning just looking at everything David says about the Lord and then everything David says about himself. Do it yourself. It’s wonderful!
But today I want to share with you the word God addressed to my grief. October is the month Mumsy died two years ago. It feels to me like she died five minutes ago. Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with sadness. God meets me on days like today with His word.
For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
God’s word on the subject! I love it! This makes me smile and my heart sing.
My father and mother are gone, but the Lord has taken me up!
It’s true. I know it every day of my life.
(My dad loved this verse and it's been precious to me because of that.)
God is teaching me His way. Not my way.
My way is bad! Really, really bad. That's why I read the Book and spend time with Him!
God leads me on a level path. I love that!
My emotions are up and down, but I look at Him and He levels me out.
Grief turns everything black, but then I look at the Lord and refocus.
Read the other things David says about the Lord in this psalm! The Lord is my Light! So wonderful!
What is the conclusion?
I would have despaired unless I had believed
Yes! I am looking for the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Ahhhhh! I’m going to wait for Him with implicit trust. No despair today… eyes fixed on Jesus! Walk the level path. Listen and learn and keep walking. Courage. I LOVE the scripture!!!!! I LOVE my Wonderful Counselor.
Thank you, Lord!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
