Bread for The Journey



          Psalm 131
My heart is not proud, O LORD,

 my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
  or things too wonderful for me.

   But I have stilled and quieted myself,
     like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child I am content.

O Israel, put your hope in the LORD
    both now and forevermore.


I memorized this Psalm recently and find it has much wisdom to apply to my life.
It tells me that pride and arrogance are not attributes that God values.
It reminds me that I can trust God's omniscience
 and that I don't need to have all the answers.
Then it gives me the wonderful image of a child who completely trusts his mother to love and protect him 
and it urges me to emulate him.
The last line is a loving command which I've personalized. 
 Oh Bev, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore. 

May God quiet your soul from what troubles it today and may you put your hope in Him.

  3. What a beautiful reminder that although the world would have us impress with pride, the Lord
    values the meekness and trust of a child in Him.
