Some days I just feel all wrong
Maybe it's something I did, or watched, or ate, or dreamt. Maybe it's an evil spirit or a memory haunting me. Or maybe it's a reality encounter where I realize how insufficient I am and how fragile life can be.
It's mornings like this, Lord, that I especially need Your presence.
Oh yes, I need it every day. I know that. But it's days like today when it becomes my survival, my salvation.
I would have despaired unless I had believed I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
I have no good besides Thee.
Be not far from me, for trouble is near.
I trust in Thee. I say "Thou art my God, my times are in Thy hand."
I sought the Lord and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
My soul waits in silence for God only. From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock & salvation, my stronghold. I shall not be greatly shaken.
finally - Ps 73
Whom have I in heaven but Thee? And, besides Thee, I desire nothing in the earth ... as for me, the nearness of God is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge that I may tell of all Thy works.
And so, today, Lord, I ask for a real sense of Your presence. Let the light of your countenance shine upon me this day. As I read your word, help me discover You - and maybe in the midst of that discovery perhaps I'll see a glimpse of Your purpose, Your plan, Your goodness for me today.
To me, that is life!
