Pslam 15

This week has held an interesting series of events- both exciting and disappointing.  I don’t have any words for today, but have found comfort and peace in these scriptures.

"The Character of Those Who May Dwell With The Lord"
LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent?

Who may live on your holy mountain?

The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken
It is difficult do attemp what is right.  Our nature goes screaming against it, but following his still quiet voice brings peace and reward, and its not temporary.  What rewards are you seeking for your life?  How long will they last?
Have a wonderful Sunday.

  4. Rhonda, I would love for you to share in what ever way you would like. You can share to FB or twitter at the bottom of the posts, or in any other way you want. Its new for me too. I've posted a few things about it over the past few weeks. It's amazing what happens when you listen. This journy began by listening for the very first time in my life. Thank you for your comment. I'm worried you might not get it as you have left no links.
