A Bowed Down Life

today's reading.
Psalm 146  Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul...

the blog.
One phrase stood out to me as I took in Psalm 146. "The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down" (vs. 8). That same phrase was also part of Psalm 145 that we read yesterday. Psalm 145:14 says "The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down." Based on these two verses, I'm pretty sure me being "bowed down" to God is important. So I took a little time this morning and considered what all "bowed down" could mean for me. I also thought about how my "bowing down" is really significant to having a right relationship with God. 

So what does "bowed down" mean to you? Why do you think your being "bowed down" is so important to God? Tami
