Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

My helping Rhema out at Parachute 05 in January indirectly led to my receiving a copy of the Word For Today Bible-study notes for February-April. For various reasons (including using other Bible-studies) I've only just started reading it. As a result last Tuesday 24th May I read the entry for Thursday February 10th, which included Psalm 138 in the SoulFood (read the Bible in a year) section.

I really liked this Psalm, mainly because it sums up some of my feelings about being in New Zealand.

I read it out on my show on Hope City FM tonight. I don't suppose Rhema expected that!

Here we go:

I thank you, LORD, with all my heart;
I sing praise to you before the gods.
I face your holy Temple,
bow down, and praise your name
because of your constant love and faithfulness,
because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.
You answered me when I called to you;
with your strength you strengthened me.

All the kings in the world will praise you, Lord,
because they have heard your promises.
They will sing about what you have done
and about your great glory.
Even though you are so high above,
you care for the lowly,
and the proud cannot hide from you.

When I am surrounded by troubles,
you keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
and save me by your power.
You will do everything you have promised;
LORD, your love is eternal.
Complete the work that you have begun.

Is your radio program music or talk format?

Hope City Radio on 106.7FM plays a mixture of contemporary and classic Christian music, 24 hours a day. But I still like to fit a words in-between them!
