to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
May my meditation be sweet to Him;
I will be glad in the Lord.
‘TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST**
Soggy messy puddle on the floor
from tears that cascade over and over
hurts, fears, insecurity had surfaced
gasping for breath beneath the weight of sin
sin not realized, recognized, released
didn’t fully understand there was this need
blinded by half-truths and lies
now every little splinter brought to light
the darkness that once covered these secrets
has vanished into the forest
all things are made new
when seen in the transparency of love
things hidden from view become illuminated
and when truth sinks in freedom comes
washed in the water, renewed by The Blood
the fears that once strangled
redeemed through grace so gentle
amazing, yet, unconditionally powerful
full of mercy, healing and love
and there is no turning back
into His arms open wide to catch

No matter how alone I feel, where I go, what I do, how I act, whom I’m with I will trust the Lord at all times. I will allow Him to lead me. I will trust in Him because trusting in myself or others is fruitless. I will cling to His promises. I will lean on ― press in ― to Him. I’ll wait on Him. I will not rush. I will hold on to the things I know to be true and let His love sink into my heart and soul through and through.
Praise the Lord!
