One of the prayer requests we mentioned as we prepared to depart was our hope to meet soon-to-be-friends as we spent time here. Your (our) prayers have been answered in spades in that regard—we’ve been blessed to have met many new friends as we’ve been here this week.
A couple days ago, a dear new-to-us-friend shared a verse with us, from the NASB, and we’d like, in turn, to share it with you. Psalm 25 is a psalm which acknowledges that God is the source of our salvation and He is the one who leads us in truth. She shared verse 12 with us, which is especially applicable for this week:
Who is the man who fears the Lord?
He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
It is our prayer, that as we explore His creation here on another continent, that He will lead us in truth, and instruct us in the way we should choose—for school, for our home, for which country will be our new home.
One of my favorite bands, Third Day, wrote a song based, in part, on Psalm 25. We’d like to share it with you here. We feel like it’s our prayer/song for the week here—our hope is Him.
