Thank you for your patience as we awaited the new website design! I hope you enjoy the cleaner look and easier navigation. To inaugurate the first blog on this new site (that’s still Live with Flair—don’t worry!), I thought I’d talk about some verbs:
I loved meditating on Psalm 145 recently. I relate to the things David asks of God here, especially as I consider the next decade of my life. Are you also in a season of change or transition like me? If so, read this aloud and hear the verbs.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
Rescue me from my enemies, Lord,
for I hide myself in you.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.
I examine the verbs. David needs God to bring, show, rescue, teach, and lead. For David’s part, he must simply (perhaps not so simply!) trust and hide himself in God.
I love this prayer so much. As you read this, think of how I’m praying that God would show you evidence of His unfailing love; that He would send help to guide your next steps; that He would rescue you from harm; and that He would teach you as He leads you on level, not rocky or confusing, ground.
