Psalm 138 (ESV)

Of David.

I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
    before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple
    and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
    for you have exalted above all things
    your name and your word.
On the day I called, you answered me;
    my strength of soul you increased.

All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
    for they have heard the words of your mouth,
and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
    for great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
    but the haughty he knows from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
    you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
    and your right hand delivers me.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
    your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
    Do not forsake the work of your hands.

    ~ Puritan Prayers ~

    "You Are the Light" by Robert Hawker

    "Precious Jesus, you are the Source, the Fountain, the Author, the Finisher of all. 'Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are your judgments, and your ways past finding out.'"

    (Excerpt taken Piercing Heaven: Prayers of the Puritans)

  2. Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
        you preserve my life;
    you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
        and your right hand delivers me.
    8 The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
        your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
        Do not forsake the work of your hands.

    WOW! How beautiful and wonderful is that?! These verses brought tears to my eyes! It was exactly what I needed this morning. 

    God continues to reassure me everyday, He makes His presence known to me. He is helping me fight through this tough time. He guides me, answers me, and continues to show me my purpose, giving me the strength to carry it out. I am His.
