While fishing for Sockeye salmon in Soldotna, Alaska last night I snagged up on a rock and broke off all my fishing tackle, so I had to rerig. This is a regular occurrence when fishing in a river using lead in order to fish the bottom of the river where the fish are.  When I had finished rerigging I noticed I had forgotten to put the fishing line through the little hole in my level wind reel, so I cut it off and rerigged again. This time I noticed I had not put the line through several of the Ferrell’s on my rod, so I cut it off and rerigged once more. Those kinds of mistakes happen in life, where we say or do something in the business of life that is dumb, bad, hurtful, and sometimes costly. We didn’t premeditate the act, word, or decision, it just sort of happened. It would be so nice to eliminate those blunders of life from our life, and one of my strategies for doing so is to memorize and meditate on and pray the words of Psalms 19:12-14, “Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.”
