Day 98 Psalm 42

Psalm 42:8 "By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life". What a great way to sum up a 24 hour period!So what distracts us from having that experience each day and each night?

v9-11 "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning,oppressed by the enemy?"...."my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long,"Where is your God?"...."Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me?

David provides the insight. We doubt that God is present with us - always,and we listen to those whose allegiance is with the one with the job description to "kill, steal and destroy"

Remember the children's song.....
"Oh be careful little ears what you hear, Oh be careful little ears what you hear, For the Father up above is looking down in love, Oh be careful little ears what you hear! Now 'sing 'till your heart's content'

You are the apple of God's eye (and that's close)and you are worth dying for.

  1. Thank you for the reminder. It is good to make a conscious effort to focus on God's love for us. It makes my days have purpose and brings me joy.

    Sorry I have been away from the website for a few days. My family was in town and I did not get on the internet.
