Psalm 32

Psalm 32 1 Blessed is the one    whose transgressions are forgiven,    whose sins are covered.2 Blessed is the one    whose sin the Lord does not count against them    and in whose spirit is no deceit. 3 When I kept silent,    my bones wasted away    through my groaning all day long.4 For day and night    your hand was heavy on me;my strength was sapped    as in the heat of summer. 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you    and did not cover up my iniquity.I said, “I will confess    my transgressions to the Lord.”And you forgave    the guilt of my sin. 6 Therefore let…

Psalm 34

Taste and See That the Lord Is Good Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away. 1 I will bless the Lord at all times;    his praise shall continually be in my mouth.2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;    let the humble hear and be glad.3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,    and let us exalt his name together! 4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me    and delivered me from all my fears.5 Those who look to him are radiant,    and their faces shall never be ashamed.6 This poor man cried,…

Psalm 78

Psalm 78: 1-8 1 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;    incline your ears to the words of my mouth!2 I will open my mouth in a parable;    I will utter dark sayings from of old,3 things that we have heard and known,    that our fathers have told us.4 We will not hide them from their children,    but tell to the coming generationthe glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,    and the wonders that he has done. 5 He established a testimony in Jacob    and appointed a law in Israel,which he commanded our fathers    to teach to their…

Bible Reading Plans

In the Bible’s most extended mediation on the benefits of reading and meditating on God’s word, Psalm 119, the psalmist writes, “Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law” (v.18). The assumption is that there are wonderful things to be seen in God’s word. Thus, if wonders are to be seen and beheld, then one be in God’s word. There’s no better way to be in God’s word than having a plan to do so.…

Peace is Not Found in Princes or Presidents

The calls and texts over the past few days, have stirred my heart.  Election stress. Vote counting chaos. It appears that for many there is a tsunami of despair about to sweep us away.  Are we really approaching “the end of democracy,” as so many national headlines proclaim?  If one fills one’s mind with cable news, one will certainly be unable to sleep at night.  I invite you to fill your heart and mind with the eternal words of God…

Is There Hope for the Future?

As I watch the world, sometimes I wonder if it will survive.  The stress points of society seem to continue to increase.  The virus was stressful enough by itself.  Then came the financial fallout as a result.  These were uncharted waters; a global pandemic and a recession worse than 1929.  Then the little boat of our country was pummeled by hurricane Racism.  We reeled in its terrible winds.  It seems to me that one more national crisis will be the…
