Psalm 57

Friday, December 30, 2011

Psalm 57 New King James Version

–To the Chief Musician. Set to “Do Not Destroy.”[a] A Michtam of David when he fled from Saul into the cave.

1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.

2 I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.

3 He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.

4 My soul is among lions;
I lie among the sons of men
Who are set on fire,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net for my steps;
My soul is bowed down;
They have dug a pit before me;
Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah

7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake, my glory!
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.

9 I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing to You among the nations.

10 For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,
And Your truth unto the clouds.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.

New Year's S-P-A-R-K Acrostic...

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Today on the eve of beginning a brand new year I'm reminded how special you my Spark Friend's are to me. I have been a member for 17 months and it has been an awesome experience. Indeed I have learned 1st hand what a special people you are. Your friendship and your support is immeasurable. Yes, I am thankful for SparkPeople and for all my SparkBuddies I've met.

Below is a special acrostic I created that paints a story on how my Spark Friend's have impacted my life this past year. Yes, I'm thankful for SparkPeople and for all my SparkBuddies I've met. I have learned a lot about this special group of people. This is what has brought me to sharing an acrostic about my Spark Buddies...

S-special
P-persistent
A-accepting
R-ready
K-kind

Special: I have discovered that my Spark Buddies are a special people who are there for you. They care and are always ready to support.

Persistent: The SparkPeople here are a resilient people who are persistent, they keep on keeping on, and they are persistent and work at reaching their goals. SparkPeople share some Spark around to the places they go.

Accepting: My SparkBuddies are so accepting, they accept me and others for who they are and not for whom they would like the person to become.

Ready: SparkBuddies are always ready with an encouraging word & always ready to share a smile, to share some Spark around...

Kind: In 17 months I've been a member of SP I have experienced the kindness of my SparkBuddies; they always have a kind word, a word that will build up rather than tear down.

Yes these past 17 months I've discovered my SparkBuddies to be "Special, Persistent, Accepting, Ready and Kind".

In closing I hope this simple acrostic on what a Spark Friend means to me has encouraged and blessed you. Have a great week. Keep on Keeping On. Share some Spark around, be a blessing to someone this week...

Love and Hugs,
You’re Spark Friend & Sister in Christ,
Judith

Happy New Year and God Bless, Let's continue to Spark on this coming New Year and be a blessing to those who come along our side!

Psalm 55

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Psalm 55 New King James Version

To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments.[a] A Contemplation[b] of David.

1 Give ear to my prayer, O God,
And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.

2 Attend to me, and hear me;
I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily,

3 Because of the voice of the enemy,
Because of the oppression of the wicked;
For they bring down trouble upon me,
And in wrath they hate me.

4 My heart is severely pained within me,
And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

5 Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me,
And horror has overwhelmed me.

6 So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.

7 Indeed, I would wander far off,
And remain in the wilderness. Selah

8 I would hasten my escape
From the windy storm and tempest.”

9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues,
For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

10 Day and night they go around it on its walls;
Iniquity and trouble are also in the midst of it.

11 Destruction is in its midst;
Oppression and deceit do not depart from its streets.

12 For it is not an enemy who reproaches me;
Then I could bear it.
Nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me;
Then I could hide from him.

13 But it was you, a man my equal,
My companion and my acquaintance.

14 We took sweet counsel together,
And walked to the house of God in the throng.

15 Let death seize them;
Let them go down alive into hell,
For wickedness is in their dwellings and among them.

16 As for me, I will call upon God,
And the LORD shall save me.

17 Evening and morning and at noon
I will pray, and cry aloud,
And He shall hear my voice.

18 He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me,
For there were many against me.

19 God will hear, and afflict them,
Even He who abides from of old. Selah
Because they do not change,
Therefore they do not fear God.

20 He has put forth his hands against those who were at peace with him;
He has broken his covenant.

21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter,
But war was in his heart;
His words were softer than oil,
Yet they were drawn swords.

22 Cast your burden on the LORD,
And He shall sustain you;
He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

23 But You, O God, shall bring them down to the pit of destruction;
Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days;
But I will trust in You.

New Years Prayer...

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

New Years Prayer

Dear Lord,
In the new year, we pray
that You will guide us each new day
in paths that are pleasing to You.
Lord, the new year gives us another chance
to rededicate our lives to You,
to study Your Word
so that we know right from wrong
and to act in accordance with Your commands.
Thank You for the sense of
direction, purpose and peace we get
from aligning our lives with Your Holy will.
We pray for the strength and the will to obey You
each and every day of the new year,
and when we fail, we pray for Your mercy,
Your compassion, Your grace and Your love.
Help us in the new year to be Your faithful servants.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

By Joanna Fuchs
