Word for the Week

March 16, 2016

Dear Friends, this week, I was feeling nostalgic!  A man whose walk with Christ inspired me in my college years came to stay and share his music in our home this past weekend. It was good to see him again and his wife. The next day, I was reading from Psalm 57 and my eyes fell across this verse: “Be exalted O God above the heavens, Let your glory be over all the earth” (v. 5).   That verse was the text of a favorite worship song that I often sang during those days at UC San Diego.  The melody immediately came back to me I found myself singing the verse quietly as I read David's words.  

What it reminded me of was God's faithfulness...across the years.  One of the benefits of "maturity" is seeing the truth of that play out!  "Your steadfast love is as high as the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the clouds" (v. 10) David continues.  So much has happened in my life since the day I first sang that song, both wonderful and painful, but through it all I can say that God has been faithful.  Friends, regardless of your age, I pray that you also will be able to look back one day and say the same. And may our lives truly exalt God above the heavens; and add to his spreading glory over all the earth. Have a great week!
