“thy lovingkindness in the morning”

Cause me to hear
thy lovingkindness
in the morning . . .

From Psalm 143: 8

From March 2020 – July 2020, we posted short selections from the 150 Psalms. This year, I am inspired to post verses again – and to create the posts around words and themes from the Psalms. There are Page Indexes for the 2020 Series, filed under MENU. This is a new series, to grow from the older series, and another way to read from the Psalms. These are the 2022 posts so far:

“like a tree planted by the rivers” from Psalm 1

“green pastures . . . still waters” from Psalm 23

“O continue thy lovingkindness” from Psalm 36

And then today’s post continues with lovingkindness. One post leads to another post. A new idea for a series, and I will learn a day at a time. Thank you.

Prayers

As I pray the Psalms for health and peace, I read this verse again, from our 2020 series. The post was from April 17, 2020. And I know many people are praying always.

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God:
I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

Psalm 52: 8

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness:
thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

Poems From Psalms And Nature

There are words and phrases from our Psalms series that stay with me, and that I hope to include in new poems, with references.

Mercy – “for his mercy endureth for ever”

Psalm 136

Lovingkindness – “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning”

Psalm 143

before dawn

bird songs
in the yard
through an open
kitchen window

and I remember
to hear His
lovingkindness
in
the morning

and I pray

may there be
mercy, love, and
kindness
in my heart
all day

Creative Review Note

The Psalms Series: June 2020 Index is a Page filed under Menu. Thought it would be helpful to review, as we near the end of June 2021.

One example is the post, Psalm 107 and short poems.

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Psalm 107: 1, 9

new leaves
on the birch tree
and on the branch
with no leaves
a robin

on the branch
with no leaves
sun and shadows

Short poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.
