praying today's psalm: psa 62

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
My hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
He is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
Pour out your hearts to him,
For God is our refuge.

Lowborn men are but a breath,
The highborn are but a lie;
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
Together they are only a breath.
Do not trust in extortion
Or take pride in stolen goods;
Though your riches increase,
Do not set your heart on them.

One thing God has spoken,
Two things have I heard:
That you, O God, are strong,
and that you, O Lord, are loving.
Surely you will reward each person
According to what he has done.

(Psa 62:5-12, NIV)

Lord, where else can our souls find rest, but in the one who has made us? Where else can our souls find rest, but in the one who has loved us? Where else can our souls find rest but in the one who has reconciled us? Forgive us for seeking this rest in our idols—all of those things we love, trust, and obey before you. Forgive us for our infidelity—that we have not believed it true that you are strong and that you are loving. May we not rest until we rest in you, our God. Amen Amen
