So, like I said, I've been busy. Too busy to blah-blah-blog about what I am thinking about. So I thought I'd re-post something that I wrote in 2008 that still seems to reflect my thoughts in 2011.
> Psalm 151 | Originally posted July 3rd, 2008:
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:
a psalm of Anne
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.
