My Soul Satisfier

Yesterday...late afternoon, my soul was perturbed, I got news that sent me into panic. Circa half an hour later of churning this info, I decided...I wasn't checking myself into the fear cage and would instead stand boldly and position myself for victory.

At night in prayer, I confessed to God that though not fearful, I was anxious and restless... and poured my soul to Him....breaking down my sincere desires and expectations....for this situation.

He guided me into three blocks of scripture;

Psalms 63 :
"O God, you are my God,
      and I long for you.
   My whole being desires you;
      like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land,
      my soul is thirsty for you.
 2 Let me see you in the sanctuary;
      let me see how mighty and glorious you are.
 3 Your constant love is better than life itself,
      and so I will praise you.
 4 I will give you thanks as long as I live;
      I will raise my hands to you in prayer.
 5 My soul will feast and be satisfied,
      and I will sing glad songs of praise to you".

The words, "my soul will feast and be satisfied"....gave me assurance that the thirst that I have to see God's power at work in my life....will be quenched....and my needs will be met.

Psalms 91:
"Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
      whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,

 2 can say to him,
      You are my defender and protector.
      You are my God; in you I trust.  
 3 He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
      and from all deadly diseases.
 4 He will cover you with his wings;
      you will be safe in his care;
      his faithfulness will protect and defend you.

 5 You need not fear any dangers at night
      or sudden attacks during the day
    6 or the plagues that strike in the dark
      or the evils that kill in daylight".

The words in "bold" speak for themselves - was assured of God's protection!

Psalms 32 :
"6 So all your loyal people should pray to you in times of need;
      when a great flood of trouble comes rushing in,
      it will not reach them.
 7 You are my hiding place;
      you will save me from trouble.
   I sing aloud of your salvation,
      because you protect me".

This last passage took all my anxious thoughts away! I lay to sleep with the assurance that God has my back in times of need and  He alone satisfies my soul.

This morning, I awoke to peace! 

Thank You Lord.

Joyous thanks........

"A joyful heart
Is good medicine
But a broken spirit
Dries up the bones
A joyful heart
Is good medicine for you".
(Song based on Proverbs 17:22)

A joyful heart radiates from a grateful heart...and I choose to be joyful and grateful today :-)

"Its is good, it is good to give thanks to the Lord on high
To sing of your faithfulness and loving kindness both day and night
To play on our instruments sweet songs for the things you do
It is good, it is good to give to praise to You.

Why give Him praise....because He is worthy
Why should we sing.....He loves you and me
Why give Him thanks....because He forgave us
Why celebrate.....because we are free
And when should we thank Him....from morning till evening
In what circumstance....the good and the bad
Is it always easy...its not always easy
But it is good.....Yes it is good.... its is gooooooooood.......

Its is good, it is good to give thanks to You
Its is good, it is good to give thanks to the Lord on high".
(Song by Ron Kenoly)

I thank you Lord, for everything because......

"Every good thing I have done
Everything I've become
Everything that's turned out right
Is because you're in my life 
And if I ever teach a child the way
Ever learn myself to change
Ever become who I want to be
Its not the I but the You in me"...
(Not the I but You in me - by Anointed)

Weary....

There are days, days like today when I find life dull…like the grey skies staring back at me. My knees feel weak, my back curves in….my eyes lose their shine, my lips curve inwards. I sigh!

Some trials are just so depleting!

This is hard Lord …its really hard facing these same issues each day…..and my strength fails me……

When Lord, will you come? And bring my misery to an end? When will my night end and morning come? When will I celebrate? When will I find rest and lay these yokes aside?

In your strength, has been my ability to stand this far….from time to time, I slip and fall…..you dust me and help me up again and steady my steps….but how much longer do I need to walk…..when and where does the road end….how far is the ribbon I must cut through to my victory?

This is hard Lord, and I beseech you, take this suffering away……
