The Wedge

The urge to react when we get angry…David’s problem too. His solution? Prayer.  In the space between the action and the re-action, like a wedge in a door, he calls upon God to come between himself and what is angering him.

When we give God a chance to wedge God’s grace between ourselves and what is angering us, a peace will come as we let God take care of things.  He won’t do it like a bodyguard and clobber the person, but rather will give you God’s power and grace to respond with love.  

Love overcomes anger.  When that happens, what a restful night of sleep will take place, as the final verse describes!

A blessed Christmas to all!

Psalm 4

Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms.
This year in the season of Advent to Epiphany we read Psalms 1—13.

These Firestarters are from a new edition of The Bible Through the Seasons being developed for families with children. For the Firestarters in the original edition, I recommend the ebook.  You will have the entire program of well over a thousand of these introductions with you on your phone or table! Check the menu options at the site for more information.
