This lesson focused on what causes the gaze to be upward toward God asking for mercy...contempt or better translated - ridicule. I lapped this lesson up! Thank you Miss Beth!
My Psalm 123
I wish I could see your throne - hear the accompanied praises of heaven singing your due honor.
Therefore I lift my eyes up to heaven just in case the chance of it parting and exposing your physical view is granted. I need your kindness Abba
I am not as attentive toward you as a servant girl to her mistress. My attentions are drawn away from you so easily.
But - O God, how I long to focus and I cry for your mercy
I am weary from a world that oozes disrespect
I know it rubs off on me sometimes without even my notice
I am fed up with it's game - defeat
I want to be free from it's consequences - division
