Praying the Psalms - Psalm 32-

 9.5.11

I am back! We had a wondeful time in Vancouver, Canada; and it was a joy to visit some of our friends who live there. We took our little girl with us and she enjoyed this special time with Mom and Dad for herself.

Annie Pliego

Mondays are beautiful, after the Lord's Day, we have our hearts full and our mouths ready to praise Him for all His benefits. I like to set apart this day to give thanks to our Father for the little things that make our days special, but more than that, more than gratitude for the flowers in bloom, and a wonderful trip, and a fridge full of food; I am grateful for the forgiveness of my sins.

That is what makes all the difference. Many who doesn't worship the true God give thanks as well for the little things in life every day, many keep journals and lists as well, but they don't know the greatest gift of all: Forgiveness of sins. 

This is the greatest gift of all, and I don't want to miss how important it is. I am so grateful that my sins have been washed away, that I am justified, that God forgave me and gave me new life. 

I am blessed indeed!



Blessed Are the Forgiven
A Maskil of David.

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

Therefore let everyone who is godly

offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;

surely in the rush of great waters,

they shall not reach him.

You are a hiding place for me;

you preserve me from trouble;

you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

or it will not stay near you.

Many are the sorrows of the wicked,

but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,

and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!


O Lord, I am grateful, grateful because you have blessed me in spite of all my iniquities. 
Thank you, because you have forgiven my transgression; 
because my sin has been covered with your blood.

Thank you, because of Jesus' sacrifice you don't see my sin but Him, who is my Redeemer.
Thank you, because you don't count up my iniquity, but count me righteouss through the blood of Jesus.

Don't let me walk in deceit.
Draw me to you when I sin.
Give me a contrite heart, 
a humble spirit willing to ask forgiveness.

Don't let my heart be hardened, O Lord.
Don't let my body grow weary,
let my find, at the foot of the cross,
forgiveness and hope.

Father, that I may come to you in prayer,
in prayer day and night.
That I may find you,
that I may find in You alone my hiding place,
my strong tower.

O Lord, preserve me,
surround me,
instruct me,
teach me,
counsel me,
and help me to obey,
to follow your voice today.

I am glad in you today, O Father!
You are my joy.
You are my song,
You alone are my God,
and in You alone my soul
is satisfied!

I am forever grateful for the song of deliverance which you have put in my mouth!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
