Psalm Songs

Psalm 89, 96, 100-101, 105, 132

As I continue to work my way through the Psalms, I keep reading verses that remind me of songs that I grew up singing in church — and some songs that I sing today.  A psalm is actually a song.  I wish there was a way I could hear the psalms put to the same music that was used back when they were first written.  It would be even better if I could understand the original language so I could experience the poetry and rhythm as originally written.

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD….for you are their glory and strength, (Psalm 89:15-16, NIV)

Once again I’ve come upon a reference to God himself embodying strength for people.  I want to explore what this means…to have God as my strength.  I don’t deserve any glory, though.  He gets all the glory for every good thing I do!

I have some tough decisions to make about my health…how can I allow God to be my strength as I struggle to understand the best path?  First I have prayer.  I know prayer works.  Would you join me in praying for complete healing?  The mere thought of surgery is enough to give me the heebie jeebies.  I pray for wisdom.  And I read/sing psalm songs in the meantime.  Sometimes waiting on the Lord is the hardest thing in the world to do.

  1. I am definitely praying for you a lot these days, Christie. I don’t know what God has planned for you, but I’m sure that He has something good in store! Can’t wait to rejoice with you in the end. 🙂
