"O LORD, my heart is not lifted up,
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother,
My soul is like the weaned child that is with me.
O Israel, hope in the LORD form this time on
I first stumbled upon this Psalm during midterms at seminary. In the midst of papers, projects, and stress, this was a breath of fresh air. It brought much needed perspective:
- Don't get caught up in things beyond what you're currently called to do.
- Focus on what's at hand... and that alone.
- Calm & quiet your soul in the Lord.
- God should be your hope & strength.
