Psalm 121; 123-125; 128-130: In My Words

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.
