Songs of Ascents (12) – A Childlike Spirit

Psalm 131

A Childlike Spirit

A Davidic song of ascents.

Lord, my heart is not proud;
my eyes are not haughty.
I do not get involved with things
too great or too difficult for me.
Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself
like a little weaned child with its mother;
I am like a little child.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
both now and forever.

And just for the record, I did not write this Psalm!
I can easily get involved in things that are too great or too difficult for me and I still have to deal with the proud heart and the haughty eyes! I have to calm and quiet myself constantly when the pressure gets too high and the battle is so intense!
But, I can say with an honest heart, in the midst of all those errors, my Hope is only, but only on the Lord while my spirit deals with the movements of my soul!

My deepest longing, besides the great visions that I carry and pursue is, to be like a little child, and to fully live with the Childlike Spirit!
