As we read the words of the Psalms contained within them is a call to find our purpose. A purpose that calls us to be upright and true. As we live with such integrity a sense of purpose infuses us day by day becoming clearer and clearer and stronger and stronger. If you feel like there is no purpose in life or that you may have lost your purpose the words contained in the Psalms can be starting points to reopen your awareness for the meaning of your being. There is a reason way you are here. Just follow the path that is given to you. One way that is given to all of us are the words given through the Psalms. Read them, as you do something of a feeling will begin to be recognized that brings your heart to rest and your mind to an awareness that you are here for a reason. This reason is to be shared with others. You have gifts of life to give to others. As you provide them you will know a greater sense of purpose. Do not let the down casting thoughts generated from the skewed imbalances of the world take sway within your heart and mind. Make a choice that regards the words, “until the upright there ariseth light in the darkness…” Hold steady and keep providing what you can for others!
Obviously we may turn to reading the verses when we are feeling challenged. And it is good to do so. Ultimately the reason to read them is that we find steady ground ourselves so that we are then in position to assist others who are feeling challenged. Our lives are really fulfilled as we assist those we are in direct contact with as well as those who we do have an influence with. We need to open our eyes to how we can serve others sometimes just by sharing our stable presence with them. Here is a key to fulfillment and the reason for reading the verses.
Why is it that when we feel stressed many of us turn to the things that would allay our turmoil. For some the things turned to may not be constructive. It has been said in times of stress are our greatest moments for growth and the development of character. Turning to the verses in the Psalms when feeling challenged are a way to direct our feelings and thoughts to that which would be constructive. As we consider the words and hold them sacred something of encouragement and light does arise. We have been gifted with the words not only for times of stress but also for times to cultivate a sense of right orientation in our hearts and minds. Let’s keep oil in our lamps by considering the words of the Psalms and the bible in relaxed times also so we have a reserve available for when we are faced with challenges.
