my psalm 10-3-82

Oh Lord I need your strength
for your strength alone will sustain me

These long hours of dazed turmoil
have taken their toll on me

My deepest desires and dreams
seem to be so remotely far
far from this world I’ve been planted in

My heart yearns for happier times
times when I can feel free

Yet this freedom I speak of cannot be
I need to be free in you
to give me rest and peace

A peace of mind that only you can give
This is your plan for me, I know

Please help me to be still and wait
to wait upon your love

My troubles seem like mountains to me
and the low times seem like valleys

Please take me to a more level ground
only for a while

I know that life is not to be easy
But you’ve promised to carry me thru

Carry me back to your fold, Lord

Where I may dwell, once again

You in I

and

I in You

Amen.

(written October 3, 1982, during quiet time, while on a church retreat in the mountains of Pennsylvania)

 

 

About treadin' on high

I have made some very bad choices in my lifetime and those choices took me to some places I had no business going. In January of '94, I became a new creature in Christ. And I have learned no matter what I'm going thru, as long as it is God's will, it's far better than one second of my own! He has a plan and I desire more than anything to be a part of it. I am.....always seeking truth!
