“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I put my trust in You. Show me the way to go for to you I lift up my soul.” ~Psalm 143:8
This is one of my favourite verses. I was reciting it to myself as I was walking to my car in the cool and dampness of this morning. This morning was hard not to feel discouraged – I was heading to the dentist to get a broken crown fixed, the smell of unharvested, mouldy crops and decay was in the air, and it’s October 12th and only 2 degrees outside. In my mind, I had lots to complain about. But this verse comes to my mind, and I recite it over and over again, until the truth of the verse settles me down and the promise of God speaks louder than my discouragement.
“Let the morning…” – God, you’ve woken me up to another day. You must have plans for me because here I am.
“…bring me word of your unfailing love…” – God, you love me. Period. Nothing I can do OR not do will EVER change that.
“…for I put my trust in You.” – God, you know what I need. You know what my neighbours need. I trust you for that. Forgive me when I forget that You’re in control.
“Show me the way to go…” – God, this day is yours. Direct my steps so I don’t get stuck. Show me what You would have me do today.
“…to you I lift up my soul.” – God, my soul is yours. Thank you for accepting me with all my mess and failures. What a gracious and loving God you are. <3
