Psalm 39:7

And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?   My only hope is in you.

Another look at life around – and just how short it is. There is that realistic view of wealth gathered during a lifetime of toil and then …. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it.  (v 6) And so another turning point in the writers thinking. 

My only hope is in you. 

Do you ever have any of those really hectic days when the cat brings home a dead bird, the saucepan of milk on the stove boils over, and then there’s a huge energy bill …. And all you can think is ‘We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. (v 6)  Life just seems too short to handle it all! I guess you have been somewhere like that, – most of us have if we are honest. So what do you do at such moments?

It will be a turning point – either you will turn to gaze upwards, or turn to sink down under the weight of circumstances. If life hits you with a triple whammy today turn upwards and learn to say, with feeling

My only hope is in you. 

Thank you Lord!
