I Know Not Its Measure

“My [musings] will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long,
though I know not its measure. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone. Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.  Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.” (Psalm 71:15–18, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – I may not be all that “old and gray,” but when I look in the mirror I see creases where they don’t seem to belong and “highlights” in the hair that did not use to be there.  Each day, when I climb those three flights of stairs to my office (I have not yet given in to the elevator), I huff and puff bit more than I used to.  

Since my youth” I have been taught to “declare His marvelous deeds” and “power.”  To proclaim His “mighty acts…righteousness…[and]…salvation.” But I did not start my blogging until late in 2017, long after my youth was spent.  In my blogs, I do my best to keep my focus on these things and not get lost in the weeds (not always successful) of politics or other topics that by comparison seem quite trivial.   

My Advice – I have a lot of proclaiming and declaring to catch up on.  While not a trained theologian or practicing clergy, I do my best to pass along some degree of Spiritual “wisdom” to the “next generation,” ” though I know not its measure.” Won’t you join me, in whatever mode you choose to proclaim?

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
