Smile on us, Lord!

Today's readings about David instructing Solomon with his final words and then sharing his last words were very touching.  1 Kings 2:1-12, 2 Samuel 23: 1-7, 1 Chronicles 29: 26-30, Psalm 4, Psalm 5, Psalm 6, Psalm 8, Psalm many verses just were beautiful to me today!

To pick a favorite I went with Psalm 4: 6-8

Many people say, "Who will show us better times?" Let your face smile on us, LORD.
You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.

I absolutely loved this scripture.  In today's world, statistics show we like our stuff.  We think the stuff is the answer to all the problems that surround us, well probably it helped to get us where we are right now ~ (U.S.)  We have forgotten that it is the LORD we need to trust and remember that He truly is what brings joy to our life!  I say this knowing because I've lived it myself.  Stuff doesn't bring happiness the LORD does!

Don't you love the smile in the photo above?  I did and it just spoke GOD to me!  Just like in Psalm 8 ~ O LORD, our LORD, your majestic name fills the earth!
