Fifth Week After Epiphany, Thursday, February 10, 2022
Happy are those who don’t listen to the wicked,
who don’t go where sinners go,
who don’t do what evil people do.
They love the LORD’S teachings,
and they think about those teachings day and night.
They are strong, like a tree planted by a river.
The tree produces fruit in season,
and its leaves don’t die.
Everything they do will succeed.
But wicked people are not like that.
They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
So the wicked will not escape God’s punishment.
Sinners will not worship with God’s people.
This is because the LORD takes care of [their] people,
but the wicked will be destroyed.
(New Century Version (NCV))
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your nourishing, life-giving water. You draw near to us, and your light reveals a wonderful landscape, beyond description. We find ourselves within your creation. You tell us that we may roam freely, but only with you will we remain nourished and fruitful.
O Loving Yahweh, we take delight in you and your instruction. We are like trees beside water, our roots absorb the moisture and nutrients your word provides. Thank you that our fruit is in season. Thank you for your love and care for us.
I receive your living water today, Mighty Yahweh, and thank you for…
Your healing waters have no end. The river, which brings us life, will never run dry. Drought will never find us when we are in your presence. May we always hear your voice calling to us, encouraging us to remain close to you.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
