Psalm 51

wave
Ps 51:1-4
Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness;
According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity
And cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
And my sin is ever before me.
Against You, You only, I have sinned
And done what is evil in Your sight,
So that You are justified when You speak
And blameless when You judge.

I was meditating on this passage the other day. I was drawn to these words, “the greatness of Your compassion” and they brought the image of a tsunami like wave of compassion moving toward me, but when it hit, rather than leaving destruction, it cleansed and washed away my sin.

    That’s an intense passage to meditate on. I’m glad you got out of it what you did. I like the picture a lot and the thought of a wave of cleansing rather than destruction.
