The Word of God Stands Forever
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the LORD blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
9 Go on up to a high mountain,
O Zion, herald of good news;
lift up your voice with strength,
O Jerusalem, herald of good news;
say to the cities of Judah,
10 Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young.
12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
and marked off the heavens with a span,
enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure
and weighed the mountains in scales
and the hills in a balance?
13 Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD,
or what man shows him his counsel?
and who made him understand?
Who taught him the path of justice,
and taught him knowledge,
and showed him the way of understanding?

I’m a natural mountain top person. Born this way. When I got this test when I was bowling at the institute, the graph showed that I was mostly on the highs. I do not naturally go low. There was this graph two years later of this other athlete. Her graph is opposite to mine. Full of lows. Boy was Trisha angry. I have never seen her angry in her life. Never saw the lady again. Think she is not a mountain top person. More like a low person. When I was a teenager, I would go up to the top of the mountain top, the peak, with my friend and her two dogs daily and we would stand up there and scream and yell and jump happily. It surely was fun. Now of course I am standing on the rock of my salvation, Christ Jesus our Lord.
