Today I’m going to be looking at two more Psalms that had a few verses…verses that stuck out to me while I was in the hospital etc.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
He was (and is) those things for me. He was my strength, and he carried me through.
O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
My verse through it all. Out of every verse I read and song lyric I heard, this line stayed with me the most. I called to Him for help, and He healed me. It’s really that simple.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help.” You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
Weeping and sadness last for a little while, and then amazing joy comes. Joy that’s so powerful that you can’t contain it or pretend that you’re not happy. It’s so awesome that you almost have to tell people about it. That’s how I feel. Like I can’t keep this awesome feeling inside. Almost like I just want to keep thanking Him over and over again.
