This is all that needs to be said today. It might be my new favorite Psalm. Psalm 131. It is my goal. My ideal. What I would like to be.
O Lord, my heart is not lifted up,
my eyes are not raised too high;
For I do not want to consider myself more than you.
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
Because nothing is too great for you. But I only need whats simple. What bring you joy.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.
Lord, you know quieting my soul is tough. But I am working on it for you. I am working on being calm and quiet and hearing you.
O Israel, hope in the Lord
from this time on and for evermore.
You are why I do everything. You are my only hope. You are my everything.
