Good Evening Y'all: Have you ever heard the term having a "do-over?" That's how I feel when a new year begins - fresh and clean! A new beginning, a clean slate, a "do-over" so to speak. (My sisters and I use to give each other do-overs in games - at least once a game - for when we would mess up...we were sweet to each other that way...occasionally!) I love to keep order and make lists, even in my prayer journal. It helps me stay focused and on target, as I've been told by my precious and loving friends that I "tend toward ADHD." I know I do, oh yes I do. (I have been known to leave my bathroom while brushing my teeth to go do "something else" and end up slurping the toothpaste foam until I can get back to my bathroom and finish brushing...)
Anyway, I wanted to share Psalm 15 with you all and hope it will touch your heart as it did mine. I am going to memorize it as part of my commitment to memorize scripture in 2009.
Psalm 15 (New Living Translation)
1 Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
2 Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
3 Those who refuse to gossip or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends.
4 Those who despise flagrant sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the Lord, and keep their promises even when it hurts.
5 Those who lend money without charging interest, and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever.
I want to do all these things in 2009 (and beyond). From Psalm 15, I want to: worship in His sanctuary, enter His presence, lead a blameless life, do what is right, speak the truth from a sincere heart, refuse to gossip, refuse to harm my neighbors, refuse to speak evil of my friends, despise flagrant sinners, honor faithful followers of the Lord, keep my promises even when it hurts, lend money without interest, and take no bribes or lie about the innocent. I WANT TO STAND FIRM FOREVER!
I love y'all so, Georgia Jan
