God’s Love Lasts a Loooooong Time

If you’re ever feeling down or wondering whether God really loves you, here’s an awesome little Psalm to pray through.

See if you can spot the central theme. (Hint: It’s repeated a few times for people with brains like mine that tend to wander a bit.)

Give thanks to the LORD,
for he is good.
His love endures forever.

But a Breath

Show me, O Lord,
my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days
a mere handbreath;
the span of my years
is nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure.

A Thousand Questions

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re looking at deeeeep, thought-provoking ?s posed by the Bible.

David — whom God called “a man after my own heart” — wrote these words while hiding from his enemies in the desert wilderness. Pray through each and every precious syllable with all YOUR heart:

Sheep Should Shout

Here’s today’s selection. SHOUT IT OUT!

SHEEPISHNESS

It’s SHEEPISHNESS WEEK here on GUWG.

Sheep are literally all over the Bible. They’re mentioned more often — precisely 200 times — than any other Bible animal. In fact, as unflattering as it may seem, we humans are repeatedly likened to those four-legged fuzzballs.

Accordingly, this week here on GUWG we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the spiritual significance of these humble but not-all-that-bright creatures.

Pray the Bible

PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 continues here on GUWG where for the next week we’ll be praying through some of the most inspiring sections of Scripture together.

So unplug, unwind, un-whatever-it-is-you’re-doing and prepare to spend some quality time with the Lord.

We’ll start today with a pair of prayers from someone the Bible refers to as a “man after God’s own heart” – David:
