Oh, how this does something to my soul
Some days there are no need for our words when his touch you so intimately! Paul teaches us to speak hymns and psalms and songs one to another, and so I am led to psalm this day.....seeking to be as paul was, thankful in all circumstances. In a season of seeking the next step while seeking to rise above the arrows, my heart found peace in the words of psalm 143. And according to the words of david, it is okay to ask....will you come quickly, papa?
Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. 2 Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you. 3 The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in the darkness like those long dead. 4 So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed. 5 I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. 6 I spread out my hands to you; I thirst for you like a parched land.(Love this:)
7 Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. 8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. 9 Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in you. 10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11 For your name’s sake, Lord, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble. 12 In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.
May the perfect Father above renew your spirit this day that His love is unfailing and that He will show us the way to go when we trust in Him. May we release control this day over our circumstances and conditions and we believe that we are children of the most loving God and may we receive His favor.
Seek. Love. Follow.
In His Wings, Ro
