Late Night Reading

Psalm 5:
Give ear to my words, O LORD,

consider my sighing.

2 Listen to my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.

3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.

4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil;
with you the wicked cannot dwell.

5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence;
you hate all who do wrong.

6 You destroy those who tell lies;
bloodthirsty and deceitful men
the LORD abhors.

7 But I, by your great mercy,
will come into your house;
in reverence will I bow down
toward your holy temple.

8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make straight your way before me.

9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with destruction.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongue they speak deceit.

10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

Lately I have been reading and have come across a view passages that have hit me hard. Such as this one. Last night I read it a few times over very slowly (had to really take it in). Parts 9 and 10 really, right now hit hard and direct to my life. It expresses exactly how I feel about some people and finding this I do not wish bad things for these people but....sins are sins. With this and my believe in Karma, one day I hope they will get theirs back. I know I can only do what is right and follow a life filled with love and not fill my mouth with deciet.

Stay true, pray(what ever your practice is), do what you feel is the right thing and I believe from this passage that the good will over come the enemy/evil in time.

Read this a few times over and ask your self. Has this hit you yet? Have you felt this way before?
