Five Words

This week for Friday’s Fave Five I’m sharing five words that stood out from my reading in the month of January. Thank you Susanne for hosting this meme each Friday. I’m including random photos with the post.

For this new year I’ve challenged myself to read 5 Psalms a day, One Proverb and concentrate on relearning Romans 12: 1-2. I’ve read around the Romans verses and that’s where the word inscrutable came from.

1. Inscrutable: not readily investigated, interpreted, or understood

Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

2. Extol: to praise (someone or something) highly

3. Steadfast: firmly fixed in place

4. Redeem, Redeemer, Redeemed: to make (something that is bad, unpleasant, etc.) better or more acceptable, (Ecclesiastical Terms) The Redeemer Jesus Christ as having brought redemption to mankind, saved from the bondage of sin.

5. Refuge: 1. Protection or shelter, as from danger or hardship. 2. A place providing protection or shelter. 3. A source of help, relief, or comfort in times of trouble.

Great Is the Lord

Psalm 145: 1-10 (ESV)

1 I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you
and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
and his mercy is over all that he has made.

10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
and all your saints shall bless you!

I’ll be around to visit your favorites, soon. We are gearing up for game day here. Can’t be avoided when your home team is playing in the Super Bowl. Truth be told watching NFL games is not my favorite thing to do but we will rejoice with Seattle and enjoy the game.

  1. I like your personal reading challenge. Thank you for sharing with me. Steadfast…..that ono stopped me this morning.
    I’m sure we’ll hear you cheering…we will be too!

  2. Amen! Isn’t Psalm 145 amazing. Well, they all are . . . but just yesterday I was reading this one and you know how sometimes the Word just comes alive and sets your heart afire, well yesterday it was Psalm 145.

    We’ll be watching the game Sunday too – Go Seattle!

  3. Dh and I read a chapter a day from Proverbs as well as Psalms for our family devotion, and have for many years, I am most encouraged by the 5 words you have chosen, thank you for sharing these beautiful thoughts, and verses! Enjoy your weekend, especially rooting your Seahawks on to victory!

  4. Love your 5 words… especially REFUGE — we all need a safe place to hide — Love Psalm 145 too … really neat goal you’ve set for yourself .. and in making it public have set yourself up to be held accountable ! smile…

  5. What an encouraging FFF. For years I’ve also read a Proverbs and Psalm daily. I take tidbits from the day’s verses to know how to pray for my kiddos and godson.

    I am drawn to “Steadfast.” I want my attention and devotion to God to be steadfast esp during the trying times.

    Have a great week, Ellen.

  6. Oh I like your reading challenge and I like how you made a FFF out of it. My goal this year is to start and end the day with the word but I just might add a bit more of a focus to it by incorporating your challenge.
