I am blessed

During our confirmation service each one of us was given a Scripture passage, as a blessing for our lives. I was about 16 years old, and recognised these as beautiful words, but I don’t think I could grasp the significance back then. Now, 33 years later, some of the wonders of this blessing are much clearer to me.

I can look back and see how, step by step, these words have been fulfilled in my life.
I can look around me and see them in action.
And I am looking forward to see God working them out in my life till the end.

I am truly blessed.

Psalm 128

A song of ascents.

1 Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.

2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

4 Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.

5 May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

6 May you live to see your children’s children – peace be on Israel.
