Sunday Psalm

So, Husband and I were talking about my purpose in blogging yesterday morning. We like to have these deep philosophical discussions on Saturday mornings after watching Good Morning America.

He asked me why I blogged....that's a very long answer which I gave him but I'm not going to get into, in depth, here. Suffice it to say that my main purpose in blogging is to point to Jesus. Sometimes specifically, sometimes just through the story of my life.

Today I am going to be fact I'm going to be specific like this every Sunday that I possibly can. It is the
first day of the week and as such I want all glory and honor to go to God. I'll be posting some kind of scripture every Sunday, whatever the Lord leads me to. I hope you will be blessed by it.

So with out further adoo here is my first Sunday Psalm.

Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.
Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.
The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life - men without regard for you.
But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of you maidservant. Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
~Psalm 87

It appears you have a "balanced" life with a solid committment to your religious faith, and I admire you for that. It's good to be confident in what you believe and not always second-guessing whether or not you've chosen the "correct" path. I find myself at times even struggling with the very existence of God, especially in light of the fact that I believe in the "freedom" of humankind. Maybe I just think too much. :) Anyway, enjoy reading your blogs and a very happy thanksgiving to you and your family. Sounds like you're expecting quite the group! ~Sam

Great post, Cyndy. I appreciate your focus. As much as I want to have focus on my blog, I'm just all over the place (thus the Bunny Trails). It's my prayer that I still point people to Jesus, in spite of all my meandering. I figure if He can use a donkey, He can use me and my wandering. :D
