Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God!

Wicked ways, sinful ways? Failures to be as perfect as God – mis-direction, wrong turns – all risks as we travel the road of life. When I made the jump from flip-phone to i-phone, online real-time Google maps for direction and correction was my favorite new feature. Miss a turn and the voice of Google’s phone lady immediately issues a course correction. Sometimes that involves a full stop, even a U-turn and return to the right way. A U-turn is repentance. Stop, think, turn up to 180 degrees then go back to where you went off course to resume rightly directed movement once again. Sometimes a simple course correction, sometimes the full U-turnBoth are helpfulimages for what the Psalmist is asking of God in today’s brief scripture prayer for moral / spiritual awareness and redirection. I recommend this brief two verse prayer from today’s scripture as a frequent, even daily, practice. Pastor Bill
