Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior (Psalm 27:9).
Because I know what I deserve.
I deserve, frankly, to be rejected, forsaken, turned away. I have done nothing, no thing, that would earn me the right to call on God for help. On the contrary, I have done eversomuch to earn God’s rejection.
But…he loves me.
I know, right?
He loves me, and he has been there for me in the past, and he calls me to call on him and he promises to be faithful.
And I do.
And he is.
Happy Thursday, Beloved.
