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 46:1,2,3,7,10 NKJV

Psalm 20 Selah


With every obstacle
and challenge

you can praise Me
and give thanks

assured of My
great love for you

that saves and won’t
turn back.


“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you;”

“may He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion;”

“may He remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice.” Selah

“Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.”

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”

“They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright.”

Psalm 20:1,2,3,6,7,8. NKJV

You Are Good


Oh Lord You are good
and great in power

guiding my feet in the way
they should go

and in the day of
pain and trouble

You are my faithful


You are great in power and You are with me.


“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.”

“The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.”

“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.”

Nahum 1:3,7 NKJV

God’s Ear


In your day
of trouble
call to Me
and I will hear

your voice
and supplication
I’m with you
always near.

A laid down life has God’s ear.

“I love the LORD,  because He has heard my voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.” Psalm 116:1-2 NKJV

“You who have shown me great and severe troubles, shall revive me again. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side. I will go in the strength of the Lord God.” Psalm 71:16,20, 21. NKJV.


I will revive you
again and again
and comfort you
on every side

And when your strength
fails you
My strength I will

These beetles seem very determined.

“And do not hide Your face from Your servant, for I am in trouble. Draw near to my soul and redeem it; deliver me because of my enemies. Reproach has broken my heart , and I am full of heaviness.  Let Your salvation , O God, set me up on high.”  Psalm 69:17,18,20,29 NKJV

Though you are troubled

I am near you

redemption and deliverance

are mine

for I comfort

the broken hearted

My salvation sets you

on high.

That Which Concerns Me

“Though I walk in the midst of
trouble, You will revive me.
You will stretch out Your hand . . .
and Your right hand will save me.
The LORD will perfect that which

concerns me . . .”  Psalm 138:7-8

I have this habit of reading of someone else’s problems and then adopting them as my own.

Lord, thank You for knowing all of my issues and exactly how to address them.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I Will See To It

I will perfect
that which concerns you

I will see to
all that you do

though at times
it may be painful

I will never fail
nor abandon you.


Out Of Trouble

“I will freely sacrifice to You;
I will praise Your name, O LORD, fo
r it is good.
For He has delivered me out of all trouble . . .”  Psalms 54:6-7

A line from the movies comes to mind . . .”Are you looking for trouble?”

Lord, we desire to seek You and Your ways as You deliver us from trouble.  And here is a simple poem . . .

Troubles come
and troubles go

and we don’t want
to see them grow

so we stay close
to You and pray

giving You  our thoughts
our lives, our ways.

Trouble Comes

“I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.”  Job 3:26

This verse comes at the end of the chapter, where Job cursed the day he was born.

Lord, we are so thankful that we can cry out to You when trouble comes.  And here is a simple poem . . .


source –

Traveling back and forth
searching to and fro
trouble’s always looking for
someplace it can go.

Coming uninvited
laying us low
God doesn’t expect us
to not say so.
