I love you Lord, for You are everything to me.
You are my Protector, my Provider, my Life-giver
my Song Singer, my Joy, and my Redeemer!
When my head hangs low, you lift it up
when I gaze behind, You shine light
in front of me
You mark my path
You pick up each foot, placing one in front of the other.
It is not my strength, but Yours, Lord
that keeps me going in the direction of Your path.
When I see failure, You show me Your victory
When I see darkness, Your light leads me on
In our small group we have been going through the book of Psalms. Being a music lover, the Psalms speak to my heart. So many of these verses are found in old hymns, and even in the newer contemporary Christian songs.
After reading Psalm 18 one morning, the Lord prompted me to write a psalm of my own- to praise Him for who He is to me, what He’s done, and what He continues to do in my life.
Nearly half of the 150 Psalms are attributed to King David. King David is one of my all-time favorites leaders in the Bible. He is greatly flawed, yet he is described as a man after God’s own heart. An imperfect man, yet perfectly in love with the Lord.
His story reminds me to-
constantly seek God’s will
to worship Him with all my heart
to trust Him at ALL times
to remember what He has done in my life
and to praise Him at ALL times!
I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
