Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Centuries after the death of King David, he was remembered not only for his prowess as protector and warrior, but more especially for his relationship with God. “In all that he did he gave thanks to the Holy One, the Most High, proclaiming his glory; he sang praise with all his heart, and he loved his Maker.” To this day, we sing the Psalms of David, those conversations with his Lord that reflect his love for his Maker and the songs in his heart. What will be the legacy of my life – my own fame and glory or songs of God’s glory? Christ Jesus, help me, like David, to give thanks to the Holy One.
This God –his way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all who take refuge in him. (Psalm 18:1)
Look upon yourself as a tree planted beside the water; which bears its fruit in due season; the more it is shaken by the wind, the deeper it strikes its roots into the ground.
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
