What I Read Today:

1 Timothy 1; John 6; Daniel 12; Psalm 13; 2 Kings 14; Genesis 16

The words of Psalm 13 really hit home with me today.  For the past several weeks I have been struggling.  I’ve been struggling to lead a group of people who are doing things I don’t agree with.  I’m afraid that their behavior will put people at risk.  

There’s a fine line between faith in God and testing God.  I’m beginning to believe that some are testing God.  

When we don’t care enough about our neighbors to take steps to keep them safe what does that say about us?  When our desire to get what we want is more important than showing concern for those at risk are we following God?  When our demand for our rights and/or personnel freedoms says we can choose to take a risk for another person how is that God-pleasing?

We’re learning something about ourselves during COVID 19.  I’m not sure I like what I see.

But our God is great and good.  I believe in the words of Psalm 13:5-6.  Sometimes there the only things that keep me going.

“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.  I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.”  NIV

  1. Hi Mike. Nice meeting you. And thanks for following my blog.

    I also love Psalm 13, esp. that verses you’ve quoted. Like you, my trust in God is the only thing that keeps me going and prevents me from falling into despair during these difficult times.
