Psalm 26:1/I Shall Not Slide

Joshua to the right and his friend on Senior Prom Night

Good morning, dear readers,

King David shares this with us:

"Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide."

Notice, David is asking God to judge him, for he has walked in trusting the Lord. David shall not slide, since he has taken good action.

I stopped trusting in God when I stayed in the house where Joshua died by suicide. I still loved God. I knew I needed Him, but what little trust I had crushed beneath the weight of my wants and sorrow.

Once I trusted again, my sliding halted. I even welcomed God to judge me. God gave me peace. Like clay in His hand, I yielded to Him. Would my burdens flee? No, but my burdens would be easier with Lord God driving my life.

Dear readers, are you sliding sideways?

I understand, truly I do. If you are, just remember God is waiting. As long as you draw a breath, He waits.

I'm giving us a challenge to trust more in Lord God today and tomorrow and all the days after.

Do you want to email me? Need to talk?

Father, holy Father, You are Perfect. You are waiting on us. Please, give us that strong or gentle nudge that says, "I am waiting." In Jesus' holy name, I ask. Amen.

Until next time . . . open up your arms and reach.
