S - Psa.115.4-12.nasb Their idols are silver and gold, The work of man's hands. Those who make them will become like them, Everyone who trusts in them.

You who fear the Lord , trust in the Lord ; He is their help and their shield. The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.

A - The application for me today is to stop ... turn towards God and turn away from the idol in my life my work , my position, my title Navy CDR and put it toward the title child of God, humble servant of the one true God, humble husband of Abby, father of Ashlyn and Chloe.
P - Lord, hear my prayer, as I fight to recover from the season past , where I may have put too much of myself into work, and made it an idol in my life. Lord I do repent, and I will wait patiently on you as you restore my soul. I pray all this in Jesus name, Amen.
