“1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.”
I am trying to memorize all of Psalm 40. So far, I’m at verses 1-3. It’s baby steps, People. I’m terrible at memory work. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try to do it. Besides, it’s hard to tell my kids to do theirs if I’m not doing mine! Amen?
