Psalm 25 & Psalm 38

I love the awesome and encouraging promises of God in Psalm 25 for someone who "trusts in God and his instruction". Particularly, "The Lord confides in those who fear him, he makes his covenant known to them." I used to have this memorized, as highlighted in my bible when I 1st read this chrono bible few years ago. So am grateful to be reminded and again inspired to truly "fear God" because I totally want to be blessed or be "confided" w/ all the secrets and wisdom by GOD Himself, the Creator, the Owner, Master of everything EVERY GOOD THING...I totally want to have that super close and special relationship w/God and tap into even a glimpse of his LOVE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, WISDOM and so much more.

Psalm 38 on the other hand, reminds me of our recent "Congregational Repentance Talk" in OC singles. It is a humbling reminder of where/how my heart can and has been; sadly in sin, sadly insecure, sadly afraid and sadly in trouble. But AMEN, David exemplifies a cry and a fight brought to God for help which is also our only right response and right approach
to ask for God's gracious love and freeing help.

I don't know about you guys, but I have been struggling A LOT w/ being Self-Reliant (that's right in Capitals), selfishness, laziness, not as urgent in my fear of God and being tempted to not give my heart or care anymore to certain people 'coz of past hurts, as I've shared at the Repentance Talk the other night for OC Singles. Don't get me wrong, am still striving to really go after repenting of these sins, but I am on the road to recovery and Repentance. For those who've shared, Thank You for your vulnerability. For those who haven't yet, I hope that you too can have that chance to be Free and keep fighting as Psalm 38 or David reminds us.
