Your word my hopeThere are good days – and there are some “other” days…

I’ve discovered that God’s word – paying attention to what He has to say – listening to Him, can transform any day! That’s why I’ve made meditating on God’s word a big part of each day! I call my time with Him “Coffee with the Lord.” Early in the morning I get my Bible, read selected passages, reflect on them, listen for God’s voice, worship and pray… and my day invariably goes better! I carry what I’ve received with me all day long regardless of what I’m facing (and it often overflows in a song)!

Today that reality was anchored in my heart as I read Psalm 119:49-56… I gave it a title – here it is…


“Remember Your word to Your servant, in which You have made me hope! This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your promise gives me life… When I think of your rules from of old, I take comfort, O Lord! … Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning. I remember your name in the night, O Lord, and keep Your law. This blessing has fallen to me, that I have kept Your precepts!” (from Psalm 119:49-56)

Let me tell you, I’m grateful for God’s word! It sure beats the message I get from the daily news! His word – my hope and my song!
