Daily D – Psalm 138:6
The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me. (NLT)
Finish what you started in me, GOD.
Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.
This is a season of transitions. Loved ones have passed away. Friends are moving from one place to another, from one job to another, from full employment to retirement.
On our walk yesterday morning, we passed some homes for sale we enjoyed watching as they were built. They are nice homes in a good location. “What if?” we wondered. We wandered closer and took a photo of the real estate agent’s sign.
The homes are nicer, or at least pricier, than we anticipated. If we sell our house for maximum value and apply the proceeds to the purchase of one of these houses, we will still owe a million dollars.
This is one transition we will not make.
Life is full of change. Some of these changes are easy to anticipate. Others are unexpected. Some we plan and prepare ourselves for.
The good news is God has a purpose and a plan for our lives. As long as we live, he is working in us and working through us. He molds, shapes, restores, and renews our lives all the days of our lives.
Where is he at work in your life today?
King David in this psalm and the Apostle Paul in his most joyful letter share a confident assertion. You see David’s words above. Here are Paul’s words:
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
Philippians 1:6 NLT
Whatever turning point you are currently experiencing, know that our Father in Heaven has his hand on you. His purpose and his plans for you are full of goodness and grace, mercy and compassion, strength and direction. He is still working on you and me to make us what he wants us to be.
I will walk with God through all the transitions of life as God works out his purpose and plans for me.
Our Father, thank you for guiding this journey. Thank you for working out your purpose for my life. Thank you for not stopping or abandoning me. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
Psalm 52:8, 9 ”But I am like a flourishing olive tree in the house of God; I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.“
