Psalm 13- my life in a nutshell

Psalm 13
For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

4 my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.


Indeed, the Lord is good. Sometimes I am on a seesaw, like the one pictured in Psalm 13, but always, always, the sunlight of God’s goodness breaks through all the cloudy thoughts and concerns.

I have setup Windows Live Writer to get rid of the multiple posting problem and to refine my blogging. I am quite excited about it, actually…although I am not using it yet. The trouble with writing on a topic like “hesed” is that it it gets you thinking more than writing, but I am determined to continue the topic this week.

Thanks to all who did the “Why I Love Jesus Meme“.I notice that thanks to Obi’s Sister, it took off in the Catholic blog community with Anchoress devoting a long interesting post to it. Of course, that is why hers is such an interesting blog to read…she lets you see into her little window in ways that surprise you.

Read Matt’s, too… and he has tagged others including Rodney.

Other than that, the real life has revved up which is normal for this season. I won’t bore you with my weeding, and planting and cleaning activities- I suppose you can read about that in my garden blog if you wish… as soon as I update it later today.

Busyness is not a spiritual gift.

  1. Sorry that I haven’t done the Jesus meme yet. It is on the back burner, though. I’m doing that thinking more than writing thing myself at the moment. Don’t give up on an AsF response yet! 🙂

  2. I know how it is so I don’t ever try to hurry people on creative/reflective things like this. If it makes you feel better I have a meme from January on my back burner still:)

    I do look forward to seeing the results ,though- it has been faith building to read the responses of not just my tagged people but others I have followed.
