my body

My soul thirsts for You,
My body longs for You… 
Psalm 63:1
 
 
O God, you are my God,
       earnestly I seek you;
       my soul thirsts for you,
       my body longs for you,
       in a dry and weary land
       where there is no water.
 
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and glory.
 
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
 
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
 
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
 
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the night.
 
Because you are my helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
 
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
 
Psalm 63:1-8
 
 
A favorite from the book of Psalms.
A combination of the NIV and the NLT translations.

my lips

Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord.
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
 
Psalm 141:3
 
 
When I read this verse yesterday, the word that stood out to me was “door.”  I started thinking about the connection between doors and lips and wrote these thoughts in my journal.
 
Sometimes doors need to be opened and sometimes they need to be closed.  Doors can be welcoming to others or slammed in their faces.  I want the “door of my lips” to be gracious, welcoming to all.  I also want my door to be heavy, so it has to be opened with intention and thought.  What does the door of your lips look like?
  
So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door for the sheep.  John 10:7 (Amplified Bible)

All were amazed at the gracious words
That came from His lips. 
 
Luke 4:22

 

Question of the day:
Are the words that come from my lips gracious?
 
 
~ God of Grace ~
You are the gracious One.
Please help the words that I speak
and the tone of my voice to be kind.
Please help those who hear my
words know they are loved by You.
“In Jesus’ name, amen.”

You are the most excellent of men
And your lips have been
 Anointed with grace
Since God has blessed
