Psa 15:5a He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. Isn’t it interesting that the ancient pictographs are telling the story of nomads, sojourners, travelers in search of home?
How does one abide in His presence, so that we may stop being shaken back and forth by every wind that blows?
This blog is a place that I can share my personal journey as a chronic Migraineur, help raise awareness of Migraine, and provide a safe and open space for discussion with others that are experiencing their own battles. Patients For A Moment (PFAM) is a patient-centered blog carnival to build connections within the community of people who blog about illness, disease, and disability. Part 1: Outside of your disability, illness, condition, or situation, what do you focus on, where do you find the strength to keep going and nourish your soul? Part 2: What do you occupy your mind, your hands, and your time doing outside of dealing with your disability, illness, condition, or situation?
Since my car accident, I have tried very hard to keep my focus on my health - physical, emotional, spiritual. Finding the strength to keep going began as an up and down battle (and it still can be, at times).
I've been watching a lot of things on Netflix (well, sometimes it's really only on in the background); which has been a nice distraction, especially when I'm trying to get through a migraine attack.
There are times in all of our lives where finding our hope in Christ seems like a fruitless endeavor—or at best, a wrestling match where you can never quite grasp the hope you so desperately long for. Psalm 130 is a Psalm of Ascent; one ascending from the depths of despair to a joyful confidence in the God of the gospel. Crying from the depths can feel like your insides are turning outward and your entire being groans audibly for the Lord to show favor and grace in your distress. No one could stand before God if He marked our iniquities – that is the point the psalmist makes in verse 3. If our problem is offending a holy God because of our sin, then sin must not only be forgiven, but we must repent and do whatever we can to stop sinning; our hearts must change to no longer desire sin. In the original Hebrew, the words wait and hope overlap meaning, and are often times synonymous (and the parallelism in verse 5 confirms this).
Hope in God calls us to forsake all of other hopes: hope in our performance, hope in our abilities, hope in our families and friends, hope in future prospects for a good life, hope in what we do for God.


Our hope will be more than that of the watchmen–for our hope rests not in everyday occurrences like the sun rising, something that is enjoyed by all men, righteous and wicked.
One thing this psalm proves is that hope will start to dawn in your life as the gospel takes root in your heart. That amazing truth should cause your heart to ascend from the depths of despair to firmly grasp gospel hope in prayer.

But I was drawn to the opening and closing verses and so studied the Hebrew root words highlighted (please see the teaching tools of scripture for an explanation of the significance of the root words in ancient Hebrew).
We do not enter His presence (what the New Testament calls justification or salvation) by our upright works, but in walking uprightly (what the New Testament calls sanctification), we remain there. I am blessed to have found these tools and gifts you share… The Lord’s light shines through you!
I also enjoy scrapbooking, but I haven't really been able to do a whole lot of that (it can be very difficult to concentrate, and the creative side of my mind doesn't always work well). It's nice to be able to watch things that I normally may never have even known about, and extra-great to have it commercial-free.
Your prayers crumble under the weight of your guilt, and you don’t know how to climb out of the hole you find yourself in.
The psalmist is aware that his sin has created a deep chasm between him and God, and longs for the Lord to turn His ear toward him and show mercy. Instead of remaining in despair by dwelling on personal failures, the psalmist looks upward. The last four verses of this psalm mention hoping or waiting five times, proving it to be a major theme of the psalm’s second half. He has brought us from the domain of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of His beloved Son.
Hope of acceptance by a holy God, a new life here on earth, and eternal life enjoying God’s presence in heaven. Does hope in the God of the gospel turn your groans of anguish to shouts of joy (compare verses 1-2 with verses 7-8)?


Let these truths pour out from your lips in joyful song to the One who redeems us from our iniquity by becoming iniquity for us, so that in Him, we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Gimal + resh is the partial which indicates the walking man, i.e, the nomad, sojourner, or traveler. The hey + lamed is the partial which indicates to shine in the verbal form, or a star in the concrete form, since one looks up (hey) at the stars to guide them (lamed) on the way. We don’t find our home here, but in the tabernacle of the Lord, in His holy habitation, we find home. But in Him there is forgiveness; by the shed blood of Christ on our behalf, the chasm between us and God caused by sin can be closed. Hating sin and beholding God’s kindness shown in sending Christ to the cross in our place causes us to fear God and turn from sin. Instead of rightly condemning us, God condemned Christ in our place, so that we could be left spotless and clean in His sight.
This hope will start to dawn for us as a watchman awaits the sunrise, seeing a glimmer of light at the break of dawn and increasing more and more each moment he waits.
A lover of Christ first, people second, and random things like coffee, books, baseball, and road trips. The story the ancient pictographs are painting is to gather the tent peg to the nomad, i.e, he stops traveling, he has found a place to sojourn, and he abides there. The story the ancient pictographs are painting is of the destination at the end of the journey, for the “strong shining” is the light of home to which the “distant shining” of the stars guided the traveler.
Also, I really enjoy visiting with my family; which I'll be able to do more now, since we're back in Texas.
Something green is still flexible; it can be shaped to the desired shape and then left to dry.
The story the ancient pictographs are painting is of being shaken as a green branch moves back and forth in the wind.
