Plea for Grace January 9, 2022

Psalm 119:25-32 NLT – 25 I lie in the dust; revive me by your word. 26 I told you my plans, and you answered. Now teach me your decrees. 27 Help me understand the meaning of your commandments, and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds. 28 I weep with sorrow; encourage me by your word. 29 Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your instructions. 30 I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your regulations. 31 I cling to your laws. LORD, don’t let me be put to shame! 32 I will pursue your commands, for you expand my understanding.


It’s days like today when I need Your truth, Your Word, Your steadfast love! When my plans, as mundane and simple as whether I can sustain a short trip to the fabric/yarn store must be altered/delayed because of spasms and (no) energy — I can tell You about them, and then I can submit to Your plan, to Your decrees, to Your truth.

The temptation to lie to myself is so strong; I need Your encouragement by Your Word. Knowing Your instruction truly is a privilege; without Your care and Your intervention, I would surely wander into despair and self-pity. I cling to Your Word, Lord. You help me see beyond today, that You are sufficient, You have a plan and purpose for me, and I can rest in Your plans (which today seem to be quiet and rest . . .)

O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day . . . (psalm 119:97)

I want to know what you think!
