Our foundations...

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" ~Psalm11/3

--> If what makes your nation great is removed, can you survived? If the basis of your culture is grace, mercy and truth, and those are removed, what will happen? I feel that is what is happening with my culture. I am past the "worrying" stage about it though--but I do fear for my nephews and nieces growing up in it. Without a steady foundation in something, you are apt to fall down into despair and agony. That is not good at all.

"The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men." ~Psalm11/4

--> One of the things about God that puzzles me. He is constantly trying us, pushing our society to the limits. Why does he constantly seek more out of us than others? Why does he do it? I guess for our potential. Maybe because he wants us to "be all that we can be." It is funny to me. Before I met the Daysman, I was totally undisciplined in all my actions. Girls were "fun" to me, nothing more than toys. Money was irrelevant because we were all going to die anyway, and the only enjoyment I got out of life was living on the edge. I swore like a sailor, refused to do drugs (thought it was done) and was extremely pragmatic (the ends justify the means). But afterward...things changed. I think my whole perspective on reality has changed. Been more...refined so to speak. Women are people to me. Pragmatism doesn't always work (and often hurts those around you) and I can control my mouth with ease. Selah.

"I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved." ~Psalm16/8

--> You know, the Daysman has put me in some crazy situations, some of them which (from my perspective) have almost gotten me killed! But I know that he has been with me and will continually be with me regardless of where I am at. I think the strangest thing is that those situations have proven to stretch me, despite my close calls with insanity (balancing college, Teen Mania, work, and friendships). But he has sustained my path and now I know where I am going. I no longer fear the future, but now embrace it. Yeah, I'm excited for the future. Selah!

"As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." ~Psalm17/15

--> To be like Daysman, someone who walked the earth without fault. That is the goal of every human, something that is unattainable. It is like a moth trying to reach the stars. We can not become, but we can try. As long as I strive for something better, it is alright, right? I mean, if we have no higher standard for our life, what is the purpose of it? We might as well as go around like the animals, and enjoy whatever food or sex that we get. I will strive for a higher standard...I will reach it by Daysman's might. Selah.

"For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness." ~Psalm18/28

--> Enlighten my darkness Daysman, help me to see the errors of my ways. Uphold me unto your truths, that I might be able to sustain my path in the dark seasons. If it were not for you, I would faint in the way. Help me to guide others into the truth, not just "great" sayings. "For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth." (1Corinthians13/8). Selah.
