Psalm 88 (CSB)

Psalm 88


A song. A psalm of the sons of Korah. For the choir director: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. 

Lord, God of my salvation, 

I cry out before you day and night. 

May my prayer reach your presence; 

listen to my cry. 

For I have had enough troubles, 

and my life is near Sheol. 

I am counted among those going down to the Pit. 

I am like a man without strength, 

abandoned among the dead. 

I am like the slain lying in the grave, 

whom you no longer remember, 

and who are cut off from your care.,

You have put me in the lowest part of the Pit, 

in the darkest places, in the depths. 

Your wrath weighs heavily on me; 

you have overwhelmed me with all your waves. 


You have distanced my friends from me; 

you have made me repulsive to them. 

I am shut in and cannot go out. 

My eyes are worn out from crying. 

Lord, I cry out to you all day long; 

I spread out my hands to you. 

10 Do you work wonders for the dead? 

Do departed spirits rise up to praise you? 


11 Will your faithful love be declared in the grave, 

your faithfulness in Abaddon? 

12 Will your wonders be known in the darkness 

or your righteousness in the land of oblivion? 

13 But I call to you for help, Lord; 

in the morning my prayer meets you. 

14 Lord, why do you reject me? 

Why do you hide your face from me? 

15 From my youth, 

I have been suffering and near death. 

I suffer your horrors; I am desperate. 

16 Your wrath sweeps over me; 

your terrors destroy me. 

17 They surround me like water all day long; 

they close in on me from every side. 

18 You have distanced loved one and neighbor from me; 

darkness is my only friend.,

John 1:35–42 (CSB)

35 The next day, John was standing with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” 

37 The two disciples heard him say this and followed Jesus. 38 When Jesus turned and noticed them following him, he asked them, “What are you looking for?” 

They said to him, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?” 

39 “Come and you’ll see,” he replied. So they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four in the afternoon. 

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed him. 41 He first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah”, (which is translated “the Christ”), 42 and he brought Simon to Jesus. 

When Jesus saw him, he said, “You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which is translated “Peter”).

December 11, 2020 (Faithful Love)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His faithful love endures forever. A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth. Since we have heard that some without our authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts, we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our dearly loved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.

The LORD God Created (January 5, 2021)

When God began to create the heavens and the earth—the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.

His Blood Cries Out (January 6, 2020)

What did you do? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. You are now cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother’s blood from your hand. When you farm the fertile land, it will no longer grow anything for you, and you will become a roving nomad on the earth. I get no pleasure from the blood. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
