Oh, wait… I totally like “homework”, cuz it challenges me & helps me apply the truth!
The following did not start out as the “assigned Psalm,” it was just a few lines of praise that I started writing in my journal after reading the WORD and talking with Jesus. But then… more came.
My Own Psalm
Lord God, You speak to Your people, to me.
You see me where I am and understand the mess I often find myself in.
You help me look up, to see You,
to see Your face, to hear Your voice,
to know You are there.
Yes, You see where I am, but you don’t leave me there,
neither do You shake your head in disgust.
My cries for help make Your heart leap.
My prayers of submission cause You to rejoice.
Then You swoop down into my mess and
surround me with Your powerful but tender hands,
walking me through the hardship.
All the while You’re changing things –
not always the situation at first,
but I can count on You to change my heart-
the heart & attitude of me, Your child.
Hey everyone who is called by His name,
praise the Lord God!
He alone hears us and is able to manage our lives
according to His purpose.
Yes, please speak Your purpose to me, Lord,
for You hear me and see me.
I love you, Lord Jesus!
