Good morning brothers and sisters. Today I am writing with a very heavy heart. My heart is breaking. But God's word gives me hope and reassurance. I have to cling to Him when I don't understand, when I am broken.
1- In You, O Lord, I put my trust, let me never be put to shame.
2- Deliver me in Your righteousness and cause me to escape; incline Your ear to me, and save me.
3- Be my strong refuge, to which I may resort continually. You have given the commandment to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress.
4- Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5- For You are my hope, O Lord God; You are my trust from my youth.
6- By You I have been upheld from birth; You are He who took me out of my mother's womb. My praise shall be continually of You.
7- I have become as a wonder to many; but You are my strong refuge.
8- Let my mouth be filled with Your praise and with Your glory all the day.
9- Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength fails.
10- For my enemies speak against me; and those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together,
11- Saying "God has forsaken him; pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver him."
12- O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me!
13- Let them be confounded and consumed who are adversaries of my life; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor who seek my hurt.
14- But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.
15- My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits.
16- I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
17- O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare Your wondrous works.
18- Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation. Your power to everyone who is to come.
19- Also Your righteousness, O God, is very high, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?
20- You, who have shown me great and severe troubles, shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21- You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.
22- Also with the lute I will praise You- and Your faithfulness, O my God! To You I will sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.
23- My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You, and my soul, which You have redeemed.
24- My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long; for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame who seek my hurt.
Have a blessed day!
