Read Psalm 25:1-10


Read Psalm 25:1-10

         1To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
         2in you I trust, O my God.
         Do not let me be put to shame,
         nor let my enemies triumph over me.
         3No one whose hope is in you
         will ever be put to shame,
         but they will be put to shame
         who are treacherous without excuse.

         4Show me your ways, O LORD,
         teach me your paths;
         5guide me in your truth and teach me,
         for you are God my Savior,
         and my hope is in you all day long.
         6Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love,
         for they are from of old.
         7Remember not the sins of my youth
         and my rebellious ways;
         according to your love remember me,
         for you are good, O LORD.

         8Good and upright is the LORD;
         therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
         9He guides the humble in what is right
         and teaches them his way.
         10All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful
         for those who keep the demands of his covenant.


What does it mean to 'lift up' your 'soul' to God?


Lord help me to lift my soul up to you.  To give all of my being to you.  To stop paying so much attention to forces that wrongly influence me.
