Guarded Ways: a Reflection on Psalm 39, Isaiah 60:1-6, Galatians 3:23-4:7 and Matthew 1:18-25

It is so important to heed the psalmist’s admonition to guard my heart. Guarding my ways is becoming even more important. God, let me know the number (measure) of my days. As I grasp that only God knows how long I have before I breathe my last breath, I am humbled. Every day really matters. What I say and do counts for something. I look to you God. Until I came to know Jesus, God guarded my life with the Law. In fact, God imprisoned me and guarded me under the Law. My inheritance has remained the same, as it is rooted in God’s Covenant promise. But thank you God for protecting me and the inheritance. I now know what grace is all about. My inheritance is under guardianship until the consummation. God is with us. It is so true. God guarding my heart is so awesome. May I live more fully into the truth of the guardianship.

Scripture texts are taken from the two-year daily lectionary cycle which follows the liturgical calendar and begins on the First Sunday of Advent.
