Praying Psalm 31

Daily Bread:  Thoughts & Prayers
from the Psalms

~ Psalm 31 ~

How GREAT
is the GOODNESS
of our GOD !

He is our
SHELTER and ROCK
FORTRESS and DELIVERER
LOVE and TRUTH
SAVIOR and REDEEMER

When I am in distress
and my life is consumed
with ANGUISH,
I will TRUST in you, God.

Your refuge is a high rock.
Your fortress is strong.
Your love is unfailing.
I am hidden in you.

You SAW my affliction
and you KNEW
the great suffering of my soul.

Let your face
SHINE on me.

Hide us in the shelter
of your PRESENCE.
You PRESERVE the faithful.

How GREAT
is the GOODNESS
which the LORD has
stored up
for us !

He has SHOWN
us His
WONDERFUL LOVE !

~ Psalm 30 ~

SING
to the LORD,

All you saints of His.
PRAISE
His holy name !

For He has lifted us
UP
out of the depths
and the grave !

He continues in
MERCY
He is our
HELP.

For what good
will it do if our
VOICES
are silenced?

So…

SING
to the LORD
all you saints of His !

For His anger lasts but a moment…
but His favor lasts
a LIFETIME !

Our weeping my last for a night…
but our JOY comes
in the MORNING !

The LORD has turned our
WEEPING into DANCING
and
He has clothed us in JOY !

Our hearts will
SING to our God !
We will not be SILENT !
We will give thanks
FOREVER !

Daily Bread:  Thoughts & Prayers
from the Psalms

~ Psalm 29 ~

“The LORD blesses His People with peace.”

Have you ever wondered what the Psalms must have sounded like being sung by the voices of His People, our people, so long ago?
A few days ago I came across a song that took these ancient words and brought them to life.  I think it is a perfect prayer we can sing together today.
It is offered (truly an offering) to us by Shelby Hughey (lyrics) and Elijah Ogden (music).
I found it while reading some of the most genuine thoughts on real life in Christ, by Sarah Sandel.   I highly recommend her blog (HERE) .  You’ll find her writing to be brave and true and inspiring.   Thank you Sarah, Shelby, and Elijah for letting me share !

Oh, Your voice like thunder cracks,
And oh, Your voice, like heavy rain beating on my back.
With a word the hills start shaking and the fire splits in two.
What is this? How is it the voice that thunder speaks to you

Rest my dear one, to My love run,
Lay these burdens down.
Surely you were made for more than this.
Pretty pictures, trophies centered
On your highest shelf come crashing down,
Come crashing down.
