Scripture Sunday: On the Line March 18, 2012 By Sandra Heska King I pray to God—my life a prayer— and wait for what he’ll say and do. My life’s on the line before God, my Lord, waiting and watching till morning, waiting and watching till morning. ~Psalm 130:5-6 (Message) Share this:EmailPrintFacebookTwitterPinterest

Beautiful! The photo, the connection. And valuable, the thoughts it stirs. Thank you for this.
Thanks so much, Sylvia.

Our lives on the line . . . love what you did with that. They really are, aren’t they?
Really. Are. And He put His life on the line for us.
My life a prayer…oh I wish it so!
Me too, Denise. Me, too.
First image that comes to mind, “hung out to dry.” No, a much better thought, cleansed and washed and brightened in the warm, life-giving sun, then carefully folded and placed exactly where He wants me, “my life a prayer.” Beautiful.
It seems like that sometimes, doesn’t it? That we’ve been hung out to dry like these brittle clothespins? I like your much better thought. 🙂
For some reason this reminds me of the dried bones and how they are filled with blood and life comes back to them. Weird thinking I guess, but they’re dried out clothespins and they new use every time you use them. Thank you for sharing.
Interesting connection, and not weird at all. Sometimes it seems like we get all dried out in the waiting, I think.
Yeah…my life on the line before God. It’s a risky endeavor some days, isn’t it?
What an artistic and creative way to illustrate those verses Sandy. He holds our lives in His hands, and we wait.
Thanks, Linda. This clothesline and the pins clipped in all kinds of weather over months–years–made me think of all kinds of analogies.

I hadn’t read this verse in the Message translation. Interesting…and a great capture to accompany it!
Thanks, Kristen. I love how the Message breathes fresh life.
Joanne Norton says
You always choose photos for verses that are very interesting, to say the least. Your creativity is pretty amazing.
Awww, thanks, CaryJo.
Carol J. Garvin says
I love how your photo demonstrates the scripture!
(Thanks for your suggestion yesterday to link up with the Sunday community since I missed Still Saturday’s.)
Well, there ya go. Some link up with both. 🙂

My life is on the line as well. I’m looking for how to choose love in each decision and relationship.
I’m looking to do that, too, Megan.
Oh my…My life is on the line as well! Love your photo so very perfect with the this verse.
Thanks, Kerry. 😀

What a great combination of photo and verse! And I love the way The Message makes me stop and think in new ways. Thanks for this. And thanks for your sweet comment and prayers. Love to you, Sandy. xo
Love to you, too, sweet Jeanne.

Sharon O says
wow… so unique…too.
🙂 I don’t use it enough, but I love my clothesline.
Michelle Ortega says
Those clothespins look as though they are waiting, too. Beautiful perspective!
They are. And when I finally go out to hang something, I’ll probably use new pins. 😉
Katie Lloyd says
You have no idea how timely this verse is for me right now… my grandma is quickly loosing her battle with cancer and right now she and the rest of our family can do nothing but wait until that beautiful morning when Jesus calls her home.
I’m so sorry, Katie. I know that place. Love to you.
