Daily Light #69 ~ God Does Only Good

Psalm 119:65-66, 68, 73-77 New Living Translation

You have done many good things for me, LORD,

just as you promised.

I believe in your commands;

now teach me good judgment and knowledge.

You are good and do only good;

teach me your decrees.

You made me; you created me.

Now give me the sense to follow your commands.

May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy,

for I have put my hope in your word.

I know, O LORD, that your regulations are fair;

you disciplined me because I needed it.

Now let your unfailing love comfort me,

just as you promised me, your servant.

Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,

for your instructions are my delight.

Rhymed Fable

Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time, 30 May 2020

Rhyme Time words this week:  able, label, fable, cable, table, stable

~*~

Child living grim fable

‘Cinderella’ well able

Cared for young stable

Her siblings at table

Dysfunctional label

Sadly later applied

To clan’s broken cable

Close kinship denied

Neglect, deceits double

Life’s toil and trouble

Twisted roots bear defeat

Fruit may tend to repeat

Family castle’s mere rubble

~

Postscript: ‘Cinderella’

Wed no prince, cruel fella

But escaped to solitude

Found wealth in gratitude

Claims “la libertà è bella!”*

Daily Light #68 ~ My Only Hope

Psalm 119:49-50, 57-60, 63-64 New Living Translation

Remember your promise to me;

it is my only hope.

Your promise revives me;

it comforts me in all my troubles.

LORD, you are mine!

I promise to obey your words!

With all my heart I want your blessings.

Be merciful as you promised.

I pondered the direction of my life,

and I turned to follow your laws.

I will hurry, without delay,

to obey your commands.

I am a friend to anyone who fears you—

anyone who obeys your commandments.

O LORD, your unfailing love fills the earth;

teach me your decrees.
