A Psalm of Hope
Sometimes you have to encourage yourself in the midst of a struggle. This is a psalm I wrote to cope with frustrations, but also reminding me of the God I serve. I pray that it encourages you.
Oh God, you have hidden me from man! You make me to be quiet in the face of my inner turmoil. I cannot be comforted by others words nor does my heart understand the wait. Yet God, you will keep me. You will sustain me. You will not forget your servant. Though I have failed you time and time again, you accept my remorseful heart and lift me up out of my condemnation. You will not forget my name though you take your time to call it out loud. When you call me I will come running and I will rejoice for you will remember your servant. You will sing over me and rejoice with me. I know full well that I belong to you and that the enemy cannot take me. You have fought the darkest waters and saved my drowning soul. You love your servant though your voice is quiet. Oh God I call out to you in my tears, do not forget me here! If it is not my time to come home to you, make my waters here sweet. Let there be dancing and singing. For I know that I do not deserve the honor, but oh God that you would elevate an unworthy servant for your namesake! Your glory would be my claim to righteousness. I AM your beloved. I am your daughter and your body. You cannot forsake your hands or your feet and I walk this life for you though at times, it may be a painful crawl. I look to you to be my rescue. You will rescue me from my doubt, my own fleshly desires, my sins and my fear. Lord I will call to you and you will come swiftly for you hear my prayers.
