Over the holidays life got busy, and blogging naturally took the brunt of the scheduling challenges. Hopefully I’m back now.
Every year, for no real reason, I like to pick out a book or chapter or verse that I think will possibly define the year to come (for me anyway). In 2012 it was Haggai, in 2013 it was Habakkuk. This year I’ve chosen Psalm 123, which is short enough to quote in full here:
To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
2 Behold, as the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
till he has mercy upon us.
3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
for we have had more than enough of contempt.
4 Our soul has had more than enough
of the scorn of those who are at ease,
of the contempt of the proud.
More to come later, but for now things are still a bit hectic … so it’s off to work.
