"Roadtrip!" - 04/22/16 - Psalm 6, 8-10, 14, 16, 19, 21
"The morning sun's a new husband leaping from his honeymoon bed,
The day breaking sun an athlete racing to the tape.
That's how God's Word vaults across the skies from sunrise to sunset,
scorching deserts, w
arming hearts to faith.
The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together.
The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road.
The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy.
The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes.
God's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee.
The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree.
God's Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds.
You'll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries.
God's Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure.
Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool?
Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work;
Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.
These are the words in my mouth;
these are what I chew on and pray.
Accept them when I place them on the morning altar,
O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar. (19:5-14)
So thankful for the "roadmap" of life He has provided for me. For all of us.
So blessed His Word is buried within my heart creating a heart transformation.
So much "meat" to chew on throughout my moments.
So delighted in "seeing" all of life through His Words.
So secure in "living" life guided by His Words.
So "in" love with His Word - our own personal love letter from our ABBA!
