Yes, you pray. Yes, you read your bible. Yet, there are things that you are dealing with. Problems from your past, people against you, bills are enormous, etc., etc. David is now a mature king when he writes this Psalm. The king having a family, riches, a nation at his command, felt the need to pray this prayer. In distress, David knew that only God can help. Is this 25th Psalm your prayer???
Unto thee, O Lord , do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways, O Lord ; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord , thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord . Good and upright is the Lord : therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name’s sake, O Lord , pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that feareth the Lord ? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord ; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
Psalms 25:1-22 KJV
Are you mourning over something God has asked you to leave behind-a failed relationship, a financial loss, or a work-related change? Trust in God that what He asks you to leave, He will replace with something infinitely better.

O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
Psalms 7:1 KJV
This is the 1st verse to the 7th Psalm. David is approaching God because He has been falsely accused. Has anyone ever lied on you?
Have you ever been in trouble because of someone’s lies?
David still put his trust in Godand that is what Psalm 7 teaches us.
So my car was hit yesterday. It was a hit and run by a driving school student. Fortunately someone took a picture of the license plate and a neighbor sent it to me.
The good part…I didn’t lose it. I’ve been known to have a short fiery temper. To God be the glory, I kept it together. I trust that God will work it out for my God (Romans 8 v.28).
When problems come our way (and yes, they will come), our part of the battle is to trust God! He makes a way of we believe that He will. Yes, it will feel like a blow sometimes, but refocus. Remember that He’s taken care of you before and Jesus died so that He’ll do it again and again.
It’s Saturday. Most people have completed their work week. How did that go?
I struggled to stay awake this week. I realized that I stopped taking my vitamins in June while I was preparing for my daughter’s graduation. My energy has been really low no matter what I do. I started my routine back on Thursday, so I pray that they take effect soon.
Today, I woke up in prayer. I thank God for that! Usually when I jump up into the day without prayer everything gets jumbled, stressful and confusing. I’m mentally listing what I need to accomplish today. I have a lot to do. This being one of them. I needed to post this morning. Without knowing what to post about, I’m posting my morning. I pray that this blesses someone. I now realize I must write my to-do list. It’s a bit long. What are you going to do today?
I don’t want to become overwhelmed by my list of things to do, so I’m committing my list to God in prayer. I’m already praying for the strength to get the most important tasks accomplished. In the process, I pray that I may bless someone today. God has always placed someone in my life to bless me (even when I didn’t notice), and my heart wants to be a blessing to others.
So, of I go. I have to get ready to leave my comfortable home. I pray that you have a blessed day and that nothing stands in the way of your happiness, I pray that you experience the absolute JOY of the LORD today!
God bless you.
