“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.

Remembrance and Hope

For new readers, and all readers, last year we posted short selections from the 150 Psalms, with pictures. The Psalms Series 2020: A Summary offers more information.

The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Psalm 23: 1-3

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.
