The three-year journey through the sacred land of the Bible has begun. Weaving through the center of each of the one hundred and fifty-six weeks of these years is a psalm. Take the admonition of Psalm 1 as you stand before the open space of time before you.
When Moses was about to “pass the torch” to Joshua, Moses put life and death before the people, encouraging them to “Choose life.” As you enter the Promised Land of God’s presence each day, there will be a word from God to guide you. The Living Waters of the Word will soak the roots of your life.
The trees of winter hardly look as though life will spring from them in the next season. Yet snow is needed now to warm the plants and when melted, to be the first waters for new life.
Fill each day of your life with Living Water.
Make my way straight before You. v. 1
My delight is in Your law. v. 2
Like a tree beside a stream. v. 3
My God watches over me. v. 6
This is the first of four weeks in Advent, Year A.
See “Solar and Sacred Seasons” in the menu above.
Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms, one each week over the three-year cycle.
The Firestarters and readings are posted in the timezone UTC+12, so that they are available in New Zealand and other regions near the International Date Line.
