Daily D – Psalm 102:11

Psalm 102:11  My life passes as swiftly as the evening shadows. I am withering away like grass. (NLT)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Gee, thanks for this truly heartwarming verse from the Psalms. You’ve made my day a wee bit brighter.” 


The sun’s rays arrived in advance of his glory this morning. His first peek above the horizon sent illumination to the clouds on the other side of the island slope to our north. Clouds nearer to me were shaded dark gray. Those on the other side of the hill glowed deep orange, purple, and pink. 

And so it is day by day. My life may pass as swiftly as the evening shadows. I may wither away like grass. But take a look at this verse found just down the page:

But you are always the same; you will live forever.
Verse 27

My transient nature meets God’s everlasting glory, joy, and strength. I will pass away. He will endure forever. The years he has created have in no way diminished his nature. He who breathed all creation in to existence, who shaped humans from the dust from the floor of his shop, still breathes life, still bears light, still endures forever. 

Because he lives, we too shall live. 

Because he is in charge here, we can give up our need to control people, places, and things.

Because we belong to him, we have full assurance that our withering selves will experience unwithering and unending delight in his potent presence forever and ever. This truth makes a shorter, slower stride bearable. 

The light of a new day has dawned. It bears the promise of That Day, the Day of All Days, when all of God’s glory and goodness will be fully revealed to those who know and love him, who are known and loved by him.

This is a good day to ponder something beautiful, something good instead of our aches, pains, and irritations. 

I will sing to the LORD a song of praise.

Our Father, your colors and shapes of remarkable array tell of your goodness no canvas could display. At best, we can only imitate a moment in time with our finest strokes. You create masterpieces in every moment with light and shadow, hue and essence, place and time. How could we not praise you? I will praise you now and forever. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

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.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
