Psalm 46 Selah

 

Only when I
stop striving

can I see how
magnificent You are

how present You
are with me

no need to fear
at all.

**********

I can pause and be still in the midst of my circumstances, for You are with me.

**********

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

“Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;”

“though its waters roar and be troubled , though the mountains shake with its swelling.” Selah

“The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” Selah

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 44 Selah

 

When the unexplainable
happens

and we don’t
understand

help us remember
how great is Your love

that we’re still in
Your hand.

**********

I can pause when bad things happen and remember how much You love me, for You are with me.

**********

“In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.” Selah

“You have given us up like sheep intended for food and have scattered us among the nations.”

“You sell Your people for next to nothing, and are not enriched by selling them.”

“All this has come upon us; but we have not forgotten You, nor have we dealt falsely with Your covenant.”

“Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.”

My Hope

 

Help me understand
how frail I am

that I might
count my days

placing all
my hope in You

the Lord my God
who saves.

**********

I can pause and consider where my hope lies, for You are with me.

**********

“LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am.”

“Indeed, You have made my days as handbreaths, and my age is as nothing before You; certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.” Selah

“Surely every man walks about like a shadow; surely they busy themselves in vain; he heaps up riches, and does not know who will gather them.”

“And now, LORD, what do I wait for? My hope is in You.”

Psalm 39:4,5,6,7. NKJV

Psalm 32 Selah

 

I will not keep
my sin from You

but in You I
will hide

confessing all
my wrongs to You

letting forgiveness
inside.

**********

I can pause and be blessed by Your forgiveness, for You are with me.

**********

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

“I acknowledge my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin’.” Selah

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” Selah

Everything
is Yours, O God

more than I
can see

to cleanse mine

in me.

how I am feeling

but it doesn’t change
who You are
