God of my praise

I give myself to prayer

David’s love and loyalty to King Saul was returned with hate and lies.

Jesus’ ministry, filled with loving miracles to those in need ,“appeared to end” with the religious people of the day determining to crucify Him.

Lies and accusations are not far from attacking those who work in opposition to the “father of lies”.

Following David’s example and Jesus’ example, we can also give ourselves to prayer.

In so doing, we may gain wisdom, beauty and grace to help when accusations fly.

The description of Christ, as the suffering servant (in Isaiah), portrayed him as a bruised reed. Unbreakable!

There are times when we must flex and bend but remember that the grace of God in our lives means that we are also unbreakable.

On this Mother’s Day weekend, we think of those who serve sacrificially. I think of my hero in the faith, Mother Teresa. The story of her life (dramatized in 2014) was very impactful to me. Called “The Letters”, this movie evidenced the struggle and depth of her work.

Yet, she persevered. We must also take time to do the small things that others overlook as distasteful or not valuable.

Even if the very ones you love and serve produce lies and accusations (like King Saul did to David)- give yourself to prayer.

God is faithful to finish His work in us and in the world. – Teresa #remember #KingDavid #KingJesus #wearechildrenofGod #ransomedforHisglory

Psalm 109:1-5 (ESV)*

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

109 Be not silent, O God of my praise!
2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me,
speaking against me with lying tongues.
3 They encircle me with words of hate,
and attack me without cause.
4 In return for my love they accuse me,
but I give myself to prayer.[a]
5 So they reward me evil for good,
and hatred for my love.
