“You TRULY DO satisfy me in the morning with your unfailing love so that I sing for joy and am glad all my days!” Ps 90:14 (my personalization with emphasis added)
With a storm raging so out of control that I seriously do not know what to do, I am running to You! And when I do, I find You — You are never hard to find and You not only are “there” when I look to You, but You always “know what to say”, You “know what will console me”, and You “know how to advise me.” So why would I turn anywhere else and why would I not always turn to You!!!!
I love my prayer closet, and even though You can be found anywhere, I have fond moments of finding You in my prayer closet — it is really the only place where the world goes silent, my responsibilities are set aside, and those who need me momentarily disappear, and it is just You and me!
This morning I ran across the verse again that You picked out just for me two months ago. From it, You gave me a song as I rode along the beach on my bike, and without even having to write it down it has become part of my repertoire for praising You . . . because YOU MAKE ME (sooooo) GLAD!!!! It is taken from Psalm 90.
In these days there is trouble, and much affliction to endure,
though there is evil all around me I’m secure, so make me glad…..
make me glad, make me glad, make me glad, make me glad, make me glad
make me glad, make me glad! (wish a blog could capture the tune!)
I know in it you show Your power and through it You are working,
all things for my good….. so make me glad, make me glad, make me glad,
make me glad, make me glad, make me glad, make me glad!
Plant in me a heart of wisdom and teach me how to number my days,
satisfy me every morning with your love,……. and make me glad, make me glad,
make me glad, make me glad, make me glad, make me glad, make me glad!
So I’ll rejoice all of my days and do the work you have assigned,
with your favor upon me I am glad ……. You make me glad, You make me glad,
You make me glad, You make me glad, You make me glad, You make me glad,
YOU MAKE ME (sooooooooo) GLAD!!!!!!!
Though singing does not dissolve the storm, it does set a resolve in my heart to joyfully wait on You. I’ll not make a single move without consulting You, because You and only You know the way through.
“This God, our God forever and ever — He will ALWAYS LEAD US!” Ps 48:14
