Words of Wisdom

Regardless of where a person is on their journey.
For life is indeed a journey.
Every journey begins with a step.
This is a passage that spoke to me while I was on break.

Psalm 84
LORD God All-Powerful, your temple is so lovely!

Deep in my heart I long for your temple,
and with all that I am I sing joyful songs to you.
LORD God All-Powerful,
my King and my God,
sparrows find a home near your altars;
swallows build nests thereto raise their young.
You bless everyone who lives in your house,
and they sing your praises.
You bless all who depend on you
for their strength and
all who deeply desire to visit your temple.
When they reach Dry Valley,
springs start flowing,
and the autumn rain fills it with pools of water.
Your people grow stronger,
and you, the God of gods,
will be seen in Zion.
LORD God All-Powerful,
the God of Jacob,
please answer my prayer!
You are the shield that protects your people,
and I am your chosen one.
Won’t you smile on me?
One day in your temple
is better than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather serve in your house,
than live in the homes of the wicked.
Our LORD and our God,
you are like the sun and also like a shield.
You treat us with kindness and with honor,
never denying any good thing
to those who live right.
LORD God All-Powerful,
you bless everyone who trusts you.
