Daily D – Psalm 60:2

 You have shaken our land and split it open. Seal the cracks, for the land trembles. PSALM 60:2 (NLT)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Today I will fly for the first time since the pandemic hit. I have three facemasks just in case. My wife and daughter have made sure I know to abide by all the rules. I have hand sanitizer, wet wipes, and enough instructions to keep me busy cleaning the whole flight. 

Once I arrive in Washington D. C., our son and I begin the trek across the country back here to our home. Next week we will continue the journey on to California. This coast-to-coast journey will show us how everyday life is affected by the constraints of these days. 

Today’s verse is a good prayer for our day. “Seal the cracks, for the land trembles.” Indeed, the whole world staggers from the weight of this virus. Systems we depend on are cracked. Some are at the breaking point. 

King David knew where to turn when everything he depended upon was falling apart. Let us do the same thing he did. Let us go to God who alone can heal our land and help our world.

I will pray across the USA.

Our Father, our land and our world are shaken. So many structures are broken. Seal the cracks. Heal our land. Heal our world. May your peace cover the earth as waters cover the seas and as the sky wraps itself around this planet. May all people everywhere see you for who you are and know you as you want to be known. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
