May 31st….WISDOM

We all know someone we would consider wise.  Maybe, just maybe as we are maturing and being sanctified by God, others will begin to call us wise.  Solomon is considered the wisest man to have ever lived.  What, or should I say Who made him this way?  It was all a gift from God.  Solomon, … Continue reading

Waiting

“Joyful are those who listen to me, watching for me daily at my gates, waiting for me outside my home!”  Proverbs 8:34 I’m not sure about any of you but my greatest vice is impatience.  I struggle daily with a dislike for waiting.  It has also become abundantly clear to me that one of the … Continue reading

May 28, 2012 – Remembrance

I took this picture at a national cemetery a few weeks ago. We attended the memorial service of our friend, Carolyn. It’s a breathtaking view, row upon row of white stones perched on a hill overlooking the ocean.    The service did not last very long. Half hour at the most. We did not have a … Continue reading

Unless the LORD builds

“Unless the LORD builds…”–5/26/12—Mema Jeanne   In what parts of my life have I allowed the Lord to build me into a strong foundation for His glory???   I’ve “researched” Psalm 127 and have read great blogs and interesting thoughts as to what this particular Psalm is referencing. However, in this time of reading, I … Continue reading

Psalms 21 – As I read this Psalms each day aloud, I decided to insert my name as if I was David speaking to the Lord. I turned it into a prayer and here is what I got. Please as you read, insert your name and offer up a prayer to our Lord and Savior … Continue reading

May 24th…Psalm 110…Jesus is the Messiah!

Psalm 110 speaks of Jesus.  Jesus the Messiah.  His credentials are all there.  Take a listen: 1″The Lord said to my Lord, Sit in the place of honor at My right hand until I humble Your enemies, making them a footstool under Your feet. 2The Lord will extend Your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem, You will rule … Continue reading

“Solomon also built a palace for himself, and it took him thirteen years to complete the construction.”  1 Kings 7:1 As I read through today’s verses I was struck by the detail of the building of the temple.  The temple was built according to the Lord’s plan just as the purpose of each of our … Continue reading

May 21, 2012 – Mighty Warriors

These are the names of David’s mighty warriors… 2 Samuel 23:8   Chronologically I don’t know when David penned 2 Samuel 23 but I trust the scholars who sub-titled it “David’s Last Words.” I find it comforting that in his last days, David chose not only to praise the Lord for what He has done … Continue reading

May 14, 2012 – When You Lose Your Way

The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.    I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32:8   My last few posts have been extolling the virtues of David. Lest we think he is perfect, God chose to include the sordid episode with Bathsheba and Uriah (adultery! murder!) to give us the … Continue reading

May 10th….God Desires Our Sincere Thanks….

I am still getting to immerse myself in the Psalms.  How wonderful!  The theme running through my readings today is Thanksgiving.  It spoke to me so much that I even posted a thanksgiving thought on my facebook status:  “Make Thankfulness your sacrifice to God”… Have I ever thought of thankfulness as a sacrifice?  Maybe it … Continue reading
