Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15  “May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (NLT)

I freely confess, I joyfully declare, I am among the most blessed men who has ever lived. 

This week, our grandson learned to ride a horse. He may be eighteen years old, but he is demonstrating one of life’s most beneficial lessons: Never be afraid to learn something new or to try something wonderful for the first time.

Our curly-haired blonde and soon-to-be four-year-old illuminated every space she inhabited. We get to spend next weekend celebrating 1,460 days of life and counting.

We very much enjoyed our soon-to-be one-year-old granddaughter this week. She joined me each morning as we worshiped God together. The moon spoke its “Good Day” as it slipped away into the far edge of the sea just as the sun declared to all the sleepyheads on our side of the world, “Good morning!”

Our first hour of the glorious mornings was filled with wonder. We talked and sang, played and cuddled. We enjoyed allowing the others their extended rest.

These verses came to full expression.

The Maker of Heaven and Earth blessed us. He blesses us still. 

We will welcome home our dogs this morning before we leave for worship. What a reunion that will be! What a nap they will need today after a week at the kennel! Ollie will have kept everyone in line. Millie will have looked for a quiet spot to be alone without much success until now. Her bathtub behind the shower curtain awaits. 

Worship will be full of fresh memories to thank God for. It will be filled with overflowing hearts of gratitude for daily blessings. It will provide space and time to celebrate all the good things God has blessed us with. 

After a week where God did some of his most creative work, we are home celebrating all these verses mention. Our children, grandchildren, and God’s good earth fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. How could we not worship? How could we not sing praise?

I will sing and celebrate our Father in heaven who gives us loved ones, beautiful spaces, and a place to call home.

Our Father, thank you for family. Thank you for children, grandchildren, and beautiful places to share with them now and forever. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
