Psalm 18:33-35 (comments in parenthesis are mine)
“He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; (quick, sure, graceful)
He enables me to stand on the heights. (success, joy)
He trains my hands for battle; (we wrestle not with flesh and blood…)
My arms can bend a bow of bronze. (strength beyond reason)
You give me your shield of victory, (in all these things we are more than conquerors)
And your right hand sustains me; (mercy, compassion, nourishment)
You stoop down to make me great.” (unfathomable Love)
I am moved by this description of relationship with God and the great lengths to which He goes to show His love and affection. When my feet start to slip, or my heart grows weary, He lifts me again to stand on the heights. He doesn’t give up on me even when I fail again and again, but he continues to train me. He stooped down and became man, died an awful death – for me. I am continually amazed at how he is able to transform me.
I did well on my presentation for class tonight. Even with the stuttering and shaking hands, I think I pulled off an A. Now to study for tomorrow.
Blogrimage Progress: School threw me off today. I did not make any phone calls. 😦 I did however, squeeze in some Pilates. After 25 days of minor excercise, I am starting to see real improvement in my tone. That’s fun. Five blogging days to go.
