I’ve been thinking about Psalm 86:5-6 last night in the night watch, in my heart, in my mind and all day today.  The Lord is precious, powerful, and praiseworthy.  Thank you Lord for listening to me and making complex confusing things simple. 



I find my life in troubled times to be very confusing

The options we face, the potential disgrace

Can weigh upon our hearts and minds

More than even we realize

It is a deep seated fear that we won’t measure up

That we aren’t what others think we are

Even if they think less of us than we do


In Psalm 86 I found a line the Lord continues to highlight

“Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you O Lord, do I lift up my soul

For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love

To all who call upon You.” 86:5-6

I want my soul to be unburdened, gladden my heart O Lord

Help me to be the person you meant me to be

Let me help others more, and care less of what others think


I want an honesty between us Father, short accounts on sin

Long accounts on prayer, spending time with You

Doing more listening than talking-You know who I am

I want to know more about who You are!

I desperately need your presence and council

I get sick without Your abiding, deep, merciful love


I know you hear me, I know you love me

Create in me a clean heart and a resourceful mind

Help me to study, to encourage, to help, to strengthen all I meet

People count Lord, they count with you

I pledge to make everyone I meet count, people count
