My "Sacred Romance"


Psalm 63 was the theme chapter from my first distance learning lesson... Beth Moore taught about the "sacred romance" between a woman and her God. I was reading Psalm 63 today in The Message translation... it is awesome.... and it is speaking volumes to me. I'll be sharing more later but I wanted to share it here...


Psalm 63
A David Psalm, When He Was out in the Judean Wilderness


1 God—you're my God! I can't get enough of you!
I've worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
traveling across dry and weary deserts.

2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you.

5-8 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy;
I smack my lips. It's time to shout praises!
If I'm sleepless at midnight,
I spend the hours in grateful reflection.
Because you've always stood up for me,
I'm free to run and play.
I hold on to you for dear life,
and you hold me steady as a post.

9-11 Those who are out to get me are marked for doom,
marked for death, bound for hell.
They'll die violent deaths;
jackals will tear them limb from limb.
But the king is glad in God;
his true friends spread the joy,
While small-minded gossips
are gagged for good.
