Psalm 25By: Darrelyn L. TuttBeloved Father,With heart full of praise and rejoicing;I bend my knee to You and give you praise.You are exalted, high, and lifted up;You are graceful, truthful, and merciful.Through merit not my own and kindness of "Your" own,You heal my wounds, pardon my transgressions, and keep me from ruin.You cleanse and make me whole,sinking and submerging me into a mercy so deep that I could get lost in it;I'm overwhelmed by it.What shall I give You, Lord?What is there to submit but my most needy and broken self?I adore you, Lord. I am known by You, Lord.I am loved by You, Lord.This is an unfathomable mystery and my most blessed reality;In whose name I pray and in whose wounds I am healed,My beautiful Jesus.Amen.-------Today's Reading: Psalm 25Chosen Selections: Psalm 25:4-6 ---> Psalm 25:14"Show me Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth and teach me; for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies and Thy lovingkindnesses, for they have been of old."Psalm 25:4-6"The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him, and He will show them His covenant."Psalm 25:14Additional Threads:Psalm 25:4-6 ---> Isaiah 30:18-26Psalm 25:14 ---> Jeremiah 33:3------What truths do you see?Record three.A thread of my own:1) Jeremiah articulates far better than I a certain truth:"O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps."Jeremiah 10:23We are so lost apart from Jesus and we are so "found" when we're bound to Him.2) It's impossible to know where God might lead us and what God might do through us in a single moment.We may be transported to a new place through a test, trial, circumstance, word, or individual He sends our way. The heavenly Father and Creator of all resources wields all power to do in an hour whatever He wills in our lives.To Him be praise.3) God whispers His secrets to His "chosen ones."Those who fear Him will be near Him until the end.They will "hear a word from Him" and walk in the way He has prepared for them.They will be united with Him and hear words from Him that no others hear.Holy wonder and sacred mystery.God be praised.May the blessing be on you, dear reader, this very day.-------
