my assembly, Psalm 40

10 May

from David Psalm 40, v. 8-10

‘I desire to do your will, O my God, you law is within my heart

I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly…I do not seal my lips…I do not hide your righteousness in my heart

I speak of your faithful and salvation

I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly’

( …I will not conceal from the assembly in of my 💓 heart your great love and truth )

There is a great assembly in the heart; inner voices; overwhelming emotions; difficult and happy memories. Plans and desires for the future.

And they will always be there. So…

How can we live within this assembly? Because we are in them; and they are in, with us? How can we, do I live with all of my heart?

I proclaim, speak, call, -in cries, in whispers, – to and of him.

I quote his Word to my assembly’s heart. I use David’s and my own cries. Today, this day, I quote the end of Psalm 38 to my heart,

Psalm 38: 22

‘Come quickly to help me,

O Lord my Saviour.’

and then I pray my heart’s words

Come quickly to my heart’s assembly. I love you, my quick Lord, I love you.

I love Him. His within my assembly.

    Dearest Charlie & Priscilla,
    I’m thinking of you both on this day. It doesn’t seem possible that twenty-four years have passed since Joey went home to be with our Lord. It was Mother’s Day, May 10, 1996, This will always be a day in which the three of us will always share a bond of the deepest sorrow.
    I love and miss you both.
