"God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—my whole life one long, obedient response."

Wonderful Words this Morning

This morning something unexpected happened in our extended family. Everyone is okay just a situation that is hard. I was praying and just kinda lost for words and saddened and realized that I just needed to seek God and hear Him. So I went to the Psalms and came across this in Psalms 119:169-176 in the message:

Let my cry come right into your presence, God;
provide me with the insight that comes only from your Word.
Give my request your personal attention,
rescue me on the terms of your promise.
Let praise cascade off my lips;
after all, you've taught me the truth about life!
And let your promises ring from my tongue;
every order you've given is right.
Put your hand out and steady me
since I've chosen to live by your counsel.
I'm homesick, God, for your salvation;
I love it when you show yourself!
Invigorate my soul so I can praise you well,
use your decrees to put iron in my soul.
And should I wander off like a lost sheep—seek me!
I'll recognize the sound of your voice.

thank you Lord for your sweet words ....

May you be encouraged as well
