Psalm 151

I was reading Psalm 139 this morning and these verses struck me, especially because of my last post.

If I say, "Surely the darknes will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night." Even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as day. Darkness and light are alike to You. (verses 11 & 12)

It inspired me to write my own Psalm.

Psalm 151

a psalm of Anne, on her first year in Rochester

Give thanks to You Lord for You are good; Your love endures forever. In an unfamiliar land My soul wasted away within me. My enemy whispered lies to me, Fear gripped me and darkness surrounded me. Then I cried to the Lord and He rescued me, His presence reassured me and His grace sustained me. He lifted me out of the pit and set my Feet on a firm foundation. He opened my eyes And my heart was filled with hope. Even the darkness is not dark to You And the night is as bright as day. Surely You are good. I will trust You all my days.
