Day 238, Evening
Today’s evening meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.
I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from evil speech; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure.
—Psalm 39 (OT)
As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness.
Saving God, I stand in awe before the mystery of your providence. Through our sometimes desperate decisions and fearful circumstances, you work your loving will. Give me patient confidence in troubled times and gratitude when things go well, knowing that all things are in your hand. Amen. (HC)
