This is a Psalm of David. Sometimes it blows my mind how he put his faith and trust in God especially in troubled times.
I love this picture with this Psalm. Pouring out our heart--just small us. A vapor in the wind. A withering sliver of grass. It must seem so microscopic, like this trickle of water surrounded by the vast mountains and valleys.
But pouring out our heart isn't just a small trickle. It has the power to move these mountains!
I can't wait to talk about pouring ourselves out, like water on Wednesday! It's a fascinating concept to me. But today, let's just take a few minutes to muse on this verse.
Musing/Meditation Prompts: Take a few minutes to look at this picture and imagine yourself pouring out. All around you are mountains that need to be moved. What would your heart pouring out like water look like? How would it sound? How would it feel? Maybe you need to pause and actually cry out and pour out. Notice the first sentence of this verse: Trust in Him at all times. I love how God prefaces us to trust Him at all times before telling us to pour out our heart. Hearts can be hurt and He's letting you know that He won't hurt your heart. You can be vulnerable. You can pour it all out to Him. He's your refuge. He's a safe place to tuck into.
Notice how the mountains seem dark, but the sun is peeking over them as that trickle of water pours out into a sea of waters. When I see it, I think new mercies every morning and also the verse from that song: It's a new dawn, it's a new day…and I'm feelin fiiiine. Is that Buble?
In this context, what does the sun peeking over mean to you?
