Weekend Wisdom: Prepare

Here’s a good quote in honor of the big game tomorrow.

“First, I prepare. Then I have faith.”

Joe Namath – former NY Jets Quarterback (won Super Bowl III – January 12, 1963; inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985)

I do not care who wins as I lost interest in football (and other sports) years ago. As long as no one gets hurt playing the game, that’s all that matters.

Now And Forever More

I was not planning on publishing a post today but when I woke up yesterday this Psalm was on my mind.

Merriam Webster defines Song of Ascents as –

“any one of 15 psalms in the series Ps 120 to 134 sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem or possibly while ascending Mount Zion or the steps of the Temple. — called also Gradual PsalmPilgrim PsalmPsalm of Ascents

One of the definitions of Ascents is “the act of rising or mounting upward”, “an upward slope or rising grade”, “the degree of elevation”

Trinity Site – White Sands Missile Range

Psalm 121 – A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121 (New International Version)

Weekend wisdom: No Waivering Faith

God is still on His throne.

Do not waiver in your faith.

He will show up in His time and in His way.

Al Gore was president-elect for 37 days in 2000 before George Bush prevailed, so this fight is in the early stages. Besides it is not constitutional for the media to declare the winner in any presidential race.

Nevertheless He saved them for the sake of His name,
That He might make His power known.

Psalm 106:8 – Source: https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/God-Showed-His-Power

I got this coin at a Hallmark store years ago. On the back is the Hallmark crown. About 6 months ago I found this while cleaning the bedroom. This past Saturday I found it on my desk. It will be with me wherever I go from now on.

For no matter what happens between now and Inauguration Day, God will show up. Just be bold enough and open your eyes to Him.
