the fire of divine love, which is the Holy Spirit

It is 1:31 PM Saturday afternoon here in West Michigan. It has been a long day it seems. I got up around 6:45 AM this morning. Once again a weird intense dream woke me up and I could not sleep so I got up. When I got up it was still dark, a sign of the coming of Autumn Season. So I got up and when I came upstairs I found Cora and Carol watching a Kid TV show (Cora likes watching Kid shows on TV). I ate breakfast and then I went down in the lower level to write in my paper diary and read from a book titled, '"Beatus Vir" Commentary On The Davidic Psalms Volume 1 Psalms 1-25 By Denis The Carthusian Translation & Introduction by Andrew M. Greenwill. I have basically been down here in the lower level reading the above commentary on the Old Testament Psalms all day. Upstairs it has been noisy with Josie, Cora and Carol talking/playing/television blaring away etc. . . Carol is suppose to take the granddaughters home around 2 o'clock PM this afternoon. Cora and Josie had a sleepover with Noni last night.

I received in the mail this afternoon two new books I had ordered from Reformation Heritage Books titled, 'The Abuse of God's Grace' By Nicolas Claget (1610-1663) Edited by Dr. Don Kistler Foreword by John Macarthur and 'Commentary on the Psalms' by George Horne (first published in 1771) Foreword by The Rev. John Greer, Minister of the Free Presbyterian Church of Malvern, PA.

Last night I basically read late into the night,'"Beatus Vir" Commentary On The Davidic Psalms Volume 1 Psalms 1-25 By Denis The Carthusian Translation & Introduction by Andrew M. Greenwill.

Well, I can not think of anything else to report this afternoon. I will close to read and ponder.

[1] My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
[2] O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
[3] But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
[4] Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
[5] They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
[6] But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
[7] All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head saying,
[8] He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
[9] But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
[10] I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
[11] Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
[12] Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
[13] They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
[14] I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
[15] My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
[16] For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
[17] I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
[18] They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
[19] But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
[20] Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
[21] Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
[22] I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
[23] Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
[24] For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
[25] My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
[26] The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
[27] All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
[28] For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
[29] All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
[30] A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
[31] They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
