Psalm 69

Have you ever been falsely accused, and no matter what you do or say, you end up paying? On top of that, no one believes you when you tell the truth?

Psalm 68

In my quiet time this week, I've been skipping through the Psalms to read notes where God has spoken to me. Today I came to Psalm 68, and didn't have one single note or underline. So I read the Psalm from beginning to end.

What awesome encouragement in the midst of our moving and change!

Our God:
  • Sets the lonely in families and leads forth prisoners with singing (v 6)
  • Fathers the fatherless and defends the widows (v 5)
  • Provides for the poor (v 10)
  • Daily bears our burdens (v 19)
  • Saves us from death (v 20)
  • Defeats our enemies (v 21)

Throughout the 35 verses of this Psalm, I was reminded of His:
  • Power
  • Majesty
  • Faithfulness
  • Justice
Then this song came to mind: Our God is Greater, by Chris Tomlin. 

Yes, He is!

With my mind renewed about how amazingly awesome God is, I go forth into my day encouraged, strengthened, and excited to see what He will bring this day.

TODAY'S CHALLENGE: Renew your mind with this Psalm, or any other favorite you may have. If you'd like, share how God uplifted you today.

They Who Wait....

Hungry birds flitted around the feeders. Both feeders were in “take a number” mode – all four perches occupied, one bird sitting on the top.

I wrote this on June 24, 1991. I didn't yet know Jesus, but He was pursuing me. Felt I should share it today. I did not edit, this is the original version.
