Dear friends,

I just finished reading Psalms 25, and it still always amazes me how the Psalm of the day always speaks to me. It also has a good word for us:

  • 6 is an earnest and deep request to God to ‘remember O Lord, your mercies and loving-kindnesses, for they have been shown from long ages past.’
  • 7b says, ‘According to Your mercy remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.’

And David, who is called the ‘Sweet Psalmist of Israel’, finishes with

‘Oh, keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.

Let integrity and uprightness/honesty protect me, for I put my hope in You.’

Friends, let’s be wise and people of peace and faith during this pandemic, and let us be like David, who sang this song to the Lord. There is a song of some years ago that had a phrase in it, “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will sing, yes I will sing.” When we see the daily events, let’s remind ourselves of the Lord’s goodness, His mercy and loving-kindnesses, and then maybe sing.
