Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness;
Sparks Lane is a favorite spot for taking pictures by professional and amateur alike. I always stop here every time I go to the cove. Pictures taken here have a clear focus for the viewer. The road leads the eye into the photograph and the trees make a frame. It is much easier to get a good image here then on a trail through the woods. In the woods the landscape is more complicated and it is hard to isolate any one thing to become the subject of your photograph.
Our complicated and often chaotic lives can be like taking pictures in the woods. We struggle to find a clear focus. King David must have also felt like this as we can see from many of his psalms. He asked God to teach him and to give him an undivided heart, a heart that had a clear focus, a clear subject for his life. As a result he knew he would praise and glorify God’s name forever.
In our complicated and chaotic lives teach us your ways and give us undivided hearts so that we can praise you with our whole lives.
