“Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.”
My sister would be 73 or 74 this month if still alive, my brother a year younger, in October if he was living.
Dad’s Been gone for a long time, (25+ years), Mom for several years.
I do have a niece, married with a lovely young daughter. They live 12 hours away. They work hard and I pray they prosper. (Also that they would love the Lord).
As for me:
“Lord, cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.”
Death, Destruction, Depression, Despondency… are not the way of the Lord.
“You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace, the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you, there will be shouts of joy and the trees of the field will clap their hands.”
That is the way I must go, singing….
“Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me,”
Lord, give me wisdom and grace. That I might continue this race. Reaching forth to the high calling of Your Love.
Lord, give me strength and the will. A clear mind to know You and Your ways for my life.
Help me Jesus, to overcome. For I trust, rely on and believe Your promise.
Cause me to know Your loving kindness.
