Let me begin anew, as a child at its mother’s breast who basks in love.
A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 70 from Nan Merrill’s book Psalms for Praying
Experience stillness and in the quiet hear what God is offering from these rich and hope-filled words
You take delight, O Radiant One,
in gracing me with new life!
O Beloved, come and renew me!
Let me face my weaknesses and all
that confuses me,
that keeps me from joy!
I seek forgiveness for my
I desire only You!
Let me begin anew, as a child
at its mother’s breast
who basks in love.
May all who seek You
rejoice and be glad!
May all who surrender to You
“My joy is in the Beloved!”
Yes, when I am lowly and fear-filled;
You hasten to me, Beloved!
You are my strength and my joy;
I Love, come and renew me again!
