As for me, I will always have hope;
    I will praise you more and more.

15 My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds,
    of your saving acts all day long—
    though I know not how to relate them all.
16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord;
    I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. Psalm 71:14-16

What is hope?

Do not cast me away when I am old;
    do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
10 For my enemies speak against me;
    those who wait to kill me conspire together.
11 They say, “God has forsaken him;
    pursue him and seize him,
    for no one will rescue him.”
12 Do not be far from me, my God;
    come quickly, God, to help me.
13 May my accusers perish in shame;
    may those who want to harm me
    be covered with scorn and disgrace. Psalm 71 : 9-13

Describe God’s closeness.

It is time to participate in one of my favorite challenges here on the blogosphere...SHARE YOUR WORLD.

Every week the host of Share Your World offers up a few questions and in answering them we share little bits of our world with each other.

Here are the questions and my answers.

Which tastes better: black or green olives?

I like green olives myself, but I am the only one in the family who likes olives period, so I don;t have them often.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

I like my prayer room. Everyone else calls it the work room.

 

What fictional family would you be a member of?

Oh dear! This is a hard one?

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Maybe?

Nope the family is too big and too much in each other’s business.

Vicar of Dibley Maybe?

Not as crass or crazy. So that’s not it.

Do not cast me away when I am old;
    do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
10 For my enemies speak against me;
    those who wait to kill me conspire together.
11 They say, “God has forsaken him;
    pursue him and seize him,
    for no one will rescue him.”
12 Do not be far from me, my God;
    come quickly, God, to help me.
13 May my accusers perish in shame;
    may those who want to harm me
    be covered with scorn and disgrace. Psalm 71 : 9-13

What should our reactions be when our enemies speak against us?

From birth I have relied on you;
    you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
    I will ever praise you.
I have become a sign to many;
    you are my strong refuge.
My mouth is filled with your praise,
    declaring your splendor all day long. Psalm 71: 6-8

Talk to me about the splendor of God that you see these days.
