"Oh Jack! I'm flying!"
I always knew that I would find the inspiration for that scene one day. And tonight I did, while I was reading books to my boys.
Nothing like reading curious
This is Psalm 62. It has always been one of my favorite psalms. This was even the text in a sermon that I preached a few years ago. John Michael Talbot put it to music, and it was a source of comfort on many different occasions. It has meant different things at different times. Today I was inspired to see how it sounds in another translation. I like it, and I have posted it for you, my friends.
P.S. Don't do too much shopping today!
"He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food."
"Godliness with contentment is Great Gain."
--I Timothy 6:6
"Taste and see that the LORD is good ... Fear the LORD , you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing."
"Sing to the Lord, you saints of his;
praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning."
--David (the psalmist)
