Psalm 37:25-26

Psalm 37:25 I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned or his children begging for bread.

Psalm 37:26 He is always generous, always lending, and his children are a blessing.

on my worst day

This psalm had already admitted the fact that God’s people sometimes fall into hard times (24). If I were to take these two verses out of that context, it might seem a stretch to apply these words to my own life, because I have experienced some of those falls, and they are not pleasant.

It’s hard to live up to the ideals communicated here. It’s hard to be generous when you’ve been unemployed for a long time. It’s hard to face the collection plate every Sunday morning and have to pass it by again this week because you did not make any income to tithe. It makes one want to skip the whole thing and hide somewhere until things get better.

Yet, I have to admit that on my worst day I have always been better off than someone trying to survive life without God. I have known the challenges of doing without, but I have never felt abandoned by him. My children have had hard times too, but they continue to be blessed and a blessing.

Lord, thank you that this is a song I can sing even on my worst day, because you never abandon me, and you never stop blessing me and mine.
