From My Heart

What Moses said many years ago truly expresses my heart felt feelings today.

Psalm 90 – A prayer of Moses the man of God.

 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place 
       throughout all generations.
 2 Before the mountains were born 
       or you brought forth the earth and the world, 
       from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

 3 You turn men back to dust, 
       saying, “Return to dust, O sons of men.”

 4 For a thousand years in your sight 
       are like a day that has just gone by, 
       or like a watch in the night.

 5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death; 
       they are like the new grass of the morning-

 6 though in the morning it springs up new, 
       by evening it is dry and withered.

 7 We are consumed by your anger 
       and terrified by your indignation.

 8 You have set our iniquities before you, 
       our secret sins in the light of your presence.

 9 All our days pass away under your wrath; 
       we finish our years with a moan.

 10 The length of our days is seventy years— 
       or eighty, if we have the strength; 
       yet their span 
[a] is but trouble and sorrow, 
       for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

 11 Who knows the power of your anger? 
       For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.

 12 Teach us to number our days aright, 
       that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

 13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? 
       Have compassion on your servants.

 14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, 
       that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

 15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, 
       for as many years as we have seen trouble.

 16 May your deeds be shown to your servants, 
       your splendor to their children.

 17 May the favor  of the Lord our God rest upon us; 
       establish the work of our hands for us— 
       yes, establish the work of our hands.

Humbly submitted — Dan

    God’s Promise: “The Lamb in the middle of the throne will take care of them, like a shepherd does [Psalm 23:1; Ezekiel 34:23; John 10:11,14]. He will lead them to springs of fresh [living] water. God will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Revelation 7:17-SEB).” Jesus takes care of believers like a shepherd takes care of his sheep. Jesus leads believers by refreshing places, so that God wipes away all our tears. Love, hugs, and prayers to you.

    Dan,
    This psalm reminds us of the temporary nature of our journey here on earth and the joy and promise of our eternal destiny. May God bless the remainder of our earthly ministry. Love Don
