Psalm 58-62

Day more than halfway something! :) 

Okay....thank you mother for putting the birthday song on here for me! THAT was funny....sorry I didn't hear it until today--2 days late!  But I had a great birthday and am back at the computer for a couple of days.....until we get OUT OF THIS HEAT and head to Colorado!! Man, oh man!!!  New diamond earrings for my birthday!! From my sweet husband!!! He is a REALLY good shopper and is better than I am at presents....he's so sneaky! :)   Then I got new perfume, (Beautiful) and an Itunes gift card so I can buy apps for my iphone! :)  wahoooooo!  And of course a much needed swimsuit that is coming in the mail and money from the in-laws that I used to buy 3 pairs of new shoes and a new purse! Chaa-ching!!!  I had a wonderful 39th bday!!!!   Next year however........  :)  

Psalm 58  This is a curse upon enemies as a lament.  The violent language is probably explained as a curse that the psalmist utters to counteract the effect of a curse the enemies are believed to have pronounced previously.  

Psalm 59 is a prayer for protection and punishment...a prayer for deliverance from personal enemies.  

Psalm 60 the nation prayers for deliverance for they have been defeated

Psalm 61  this is a prayer of a burdened king for protection   ...another lament!   

Psalm 62     a psalm of patient trust that puts confidence in Go'ds protection...God is the psalmists (and ours!) only help.  

tomorrow:   63-69

  1. The song that plays at the top of the playlist comes from Psalm 42. It was a ways back from what we are reading now, but we had to sing Happy Birthday!
    As the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs after You. You alone are my heart's desire, and I long to worship You. You alone are my strength and shield, to You alone let my spirit yield. You alone are my heart's desire, and I long to worship You.
