Read Psalm 25:1-10
To you, O Lord, I offer my prayer;
2 in you, my God, I trust.
Save me from the shame of defeat;
don’t let my enemies gloat over me!
3 Defeat does not come to those who trust in you,
but to those who are quick to rebel against you.
4 Teach me your ways, O Lord;
make them known to me.
5 Teach me to live according to your truth,
for you are my God, who saves me.
I always trust in you.
6 Remember, O Lord, your kindness and constant love
which you have shown from long ago.
7 Forgive the sins and errors of my youth.
In your constant love and goodness, remember me, Lord!
8 Because the Lord is righteous and good,
he teaches sinners the path they should follow.
9 He leads the humble in the right way
and teaches them his will.
10 With faithfulness and love he leads
all who keep his covenant and obey his commands.
"To you O Lord, I lift up my soul. In you a put my trust" Vs 1&2
I love the image the Psalmist offers - lifting up your soul to the Lord. Everything about us - our frailties, strengths, sins, goodness - we hold it up to God and trust him with it.
Spend some time 'lifting' your soul to the Lord.
