Put me back on my feet...

*The blog, like most things in my life, is a work in progress... still working to get it just right.*

Psalm 86
{The Message version}
"Bend an ear, God; answer me. I'm one miserable wretch!
Keep me safe- haven't I lived a good life?
Help your servant- I'm depending on you!
You're my God; have mercy on me.
I count on you from morning to night.
Give your servant a happy life;
I put myself in your hands!
You're well-known as good and forgiving, bighearted to all who ask for help.
Pay attention, God, to my prayer;
bend down and listen to my cry for help.
Every time I'm in trouble I call on you, confident that you'll answer.
There's no one quite like you among the gods, O Lord,
and nothing to compare with your works...
God, you're the one, there's no one but you!
Train me, God, to walk straight; then I'll follow your true path.
Put me together, one heart and mind; then undivided, I'll worship in joyful fear.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord;
I've never kept secret what you're up to.
You've always been great toward me- what love!...
But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love
and you never, never quit.
So look me in the eye and show kindness,
give your servant the strength to go on,
save your dear, dear child!
Make a show of how much you love me
so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed,
as you, God,
gently and powerfully put me back on my feet. "
I hope this scripture ministers to you, as it has to us.
Stay tuned for pics from my sister's Bridal Shower....
