Tonight I’m going to write out Psalm 130 as a prayer. I am feeling overwhelmed. As usual, arrows start to fly when my husband has to travel for work. Somehow, the Lord gets me through. Tonight my sweet doggy is sicker than…well, a dog…so my plans for tomorrow are now thrown by the wayside because I have to get her to the vet. I wonder if I can somehow turn that into a field trip for our homeschool?
None of these issues will drag me under because like David, I know where my help comes from. The LORD is my strength.
Psalm 130, in my words:
Out of the depths I cry out to you, O LORD;
Father, hear my voice.
Open your ears to my cry for mercy.
If you kept a record of sins, who could stand?
But you extend forgiveness — and so you are revered.
I wait for you, Lord, my soul waits. In your word I put my hope.
My soul waits for you…even more than the watchmen wait for the morning…more than the watchmen wait for the morning.
I place my hope in you LORD, for you rain down unfailing love
–and full redemption.
You redeemed me from all my many sins.
