He Lifts Me Up
We've experienced serious illness at my house recently. Thankfully we are past that now. However, I look at some my friends who have chronic illness and see how mentally draining that can be. I've had a line from a contemporary Christian song Get Down running through my head....I get down, He lifts me up. That got me to thinking about King David's psalms. Now there was man who faced all sorts of trouble and yet each time, he would turn to God who lifted him up again.
So this week, pick a psalm or even a few verses and re-write it in your own words. Here's mine:
Psalm 31:3-5 There is so much in this world, Lord, that is unstable and insecure. But You never change; You provide a stability I can't find anywhere else. Therefore, show me Your way and guide me into service to You so I may show Your great name to others. Lead me through the mine field of the secular society around me. I cling to your strength and commit my spirit into your hands because You have redeemed me.
