Seriously, I could stay on Tumblr all day long… so many good vibes lols is it possible to overdose on happiness? Possibly.
BUT, I couldn’t help but want to share this with the few that still read here or whoever may stumble upon this humble blog… I woke up at 2:50am this morning and just couldn’t get back to sleep, so what did I do? I brushed my teeth *cheet cheet cheet cheet cheet cheet cheet cheet cheet* lols, gotta love Play School :D. Sadly no, this time they didn’t get the better of me so I may have morning breath as I type this (I have had several glasses of water though) BUT, like I said (I know, you’re just like “Get to the point, Ames!”) I read this awesome passage from the Bible and I just had to share it somewhere and since I’m still mainly just reblogging pictures and other cool do-dads over at Tumblr, WordPress is still the place that I’d want to type out anything more than a few sentences (and there I go with a majorly long one again- ha!).
So yes, to this awesome passage…. but BEFORE that (lols- obviously in a bit of a hyper mood- always am when it’s early in the morning!), I just wanted to say that I’ve come across many people who have struggled to find relevance in the Bible, given that it is over 2000 years old. However, as an ancient text, I find that it is very applicable to any and all situations if you are willing to firstly, give it a chance and then read it with open ears to hear, open eyes to see and an open heart to receive :).
ANYWAY, this is what spoke to me this morning… the prayer of David that became my prayer today (I couldn’t choose just one part of it… it was all good!):
1 O Lord, I give my life to you.
2 I trust in you, my God!
Do not let me be disgraced,
or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
3 No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced,
but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
4 Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
5 Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.
6 Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
which you have shown from long ages past.
7 Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
for you are merciful, O Lord.
8 The Lord is good and does what is right;
he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
9 He leads the humble in doing right,
teaching them his way.
10 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness
all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.
11 For the honor of your name, O Lord,
forgive my many, many sins.
12 Who are those who fear the Lord?
He will show them the path they should choose.
13 They will live in prosperity,
and their children will inherit the land.
14 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him.
He teaches them his covenant.
15 My eyes are always on the Lord,
for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
16 Turn to me and have mercy,
for I am alone and in deep distress.
17 My problems go from bad to worse.
Oh, save me from them all!
18 Feel my pain and see my trouble.
Forgive all my sins.
19 See how many enemies I have
and how viciously they hate me!
20 Protect me! Rescue my life from them!
Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.
21 May integrity and honesty protect me,
for I put my hope in you.
22 O God, ransom Israel
from all its troubles.
– Psalm 25 (NLT- My Bible must be an older version of the NLT because it was slightly different but still, this is just as good…)
And it’s official now, Ange and I are doing/going to COLOUR 2012! Woot! Can’t wait! This will be sisterhood to the max… a glimpse of heaven… and who wouldn’t want that? :)
Life is so exciting and COLOURFUL at the moment… how wonderful it is to be walking
faithfully and humbly with OUR GOD!
Readings time :D.
Have a blessed day, everyone!
P.S. I know I haven’t come back with a song but I assure you there is one here… just waiting on my voice to sound less ‘manly’! ;D
P.P.S. WordPress was very difficult and didn’t let me post this until 5:15am (was finished at 4:45am lols!)!
P.P.P.S. On closer reading of my early morning spew, it has come to my attention that I probably didn’t express myself very clearly when I said ‘walking faithfully and humbly’… only God can really tell if someone is being faithful and humble…also, it’s a bit hypocritical to call yourself ‘humble’, right? lols I think what I meant was that I’m humbled to be able to walk along side my Heavenly Father as His daughter, clothed in the righteousness of my Saviour :).
P.P.P.P.S. A person’s expression and overall writing style can betray them… better to write anonymously rather than use a dodgy alias if you don’t want to be known (plus an email address with your initials and last name is a big giveaway).
