Scripture of the Day - David (Ps. 75:6-7)

"For promotion comes not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he demotes one and promotes another." ~~ Psalms 75:6-7 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)

This passage has stuck sharply in my mind in recent years as I reassess my life and my position in this world both with God and with my fellow humankind. I realize through this that I need to simply keep placing one foot in front of the other and keep chopping wood. Eventually, after establishing a consistent pattern of faithfulness and due diligence God will promote me from my current abasement. In the meantime I will be patient and just enjoy the ride and learn all I can from each day and each experience.

  1. Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

    I'm so proud of you, Kimmer. You have taken these words to heart and you know them intimately. :-)
