07/31 Psalm 129:1-8
1 From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me. Let all Israel repeat this: 2 From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never defeated me. 3 My back is covered with cuts, as if a farmer had plowed long furrows. 4 But the LORD is good; he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly. 5 May all who hate Jerusalem be turned back in shameful defeat. 6 May they be as useless as grass on a rooftop, turning yellow when only half grown, 7 ignored by the harvester, despised by the binder. 8 And may those who pass by refuse to give them this blessing: “The LORD bless you; we bless you in the LORD ’s name.”
Oh Lord bless me today. Speak a word of joy and peace into my life. Help me to hear You as you guide me. Life is hard but You, Father, make life worth living. In You my Lord is hope. In You Lord is joy and peace and accomplishment. Thank you Lord for the breath of life today. I love you.
