Wednesday in Holy Week

Of course, you get what you need exactly when you need it! And I need Psalm 70!

After six and half decades on Planet Earth, I am approaching 70. And for the first time in my life, I am experiencing Evil — bad people & bad situations. I quote Psalm 23 a lot. I feel I walk through a valley of the shadow of death as I deal with addicts, alcoholics, debtors and sociopaths. I am powerless over these negative influences and I turn to my Higher Power — O God, O Lord. They go low so I go High. It’s hard to confess in a world focused on winners and winning, but I am low and in misery. Many seek my soul, my talents and my money. Only God, my helper and redeemer, can help me. Haste thee, O God to deliver me — make no long tarrying.
