Good morning, High Favored Ones:
I hope this Wednesday morning finds you well and refreshed. It is Hump Day!!!
How are you spending your summer?
A lot of people and families are on vacation right now. Students are out of school and enjoying the break. A great deal of students, whether entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, elementary, middle school, high school or college, are facing a change, with the coming new school year. The new school year could bring several new things like new friends, new classes and maybe even a new school. I know some of us older adults, we may also be transitioning to something new. It may be a new season in life like a new career, retirement, a new baby, a new relationship or maybe even saying goodbye to one.
I know that change can sometimes be a little scary, because of the unknown and newness of it all. As children of God, we know that God walks with us every step of the way. So trust that as you seek God and seek His heart that he will always lead you in the right direction. All we have to do is Follow…
New International Version (NIV)
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
1 You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
Today’s devotional song was my theme song from my late teens to early twenties. Listen carefully to the words and enjoy Rich Mullins’ interpretation of today’s scripture reading from Psalm 63.
