Psalm 24:5-6 They will receive blessing from the Lord, and vindication from the God of their salvation. Such is the company of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. * * * * * * * * "...who seek the face of the God of Jacob." Yep, that would be me, but not because of any particular skill or virtue. I am a member of the Jacobian wrestling team. My polite prayers are just my civil handshake before I grab God by the toga, fling my ego around, convince myself that I am not way beyond my weight class and wait for the sound of counting and a mat slapped so that I can rise up victorious, blessed and limping. I never see the face of the opponent who let me walk away with my life. And yet, I am sure God saw mine and could it be that we both were smiling? * * * * * * * * Holy God, good match, let's go again. Amen.
