Word-Filled Wednesday ~#3~ 8/4/10

PASSAGE: Psalm 63:1-8 ~
  1. O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You, my body longs for You, in a dry & weary land where there is no water.

  2. I have seen You in the sanctuary & beheld Your power & Your glory.

  3. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You.

  4. I will praise you as long as I live, & in Your Name I will lift up my hands.

  5. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; w/singing lips my mouth will priase You.

  6. On my bed I remember you; I think of You through the watches of the night.

  7. Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.

  8. My soul clings to you; Your right hand upholds me.

LESSON LEARNED: I came to Jesus in the midst of the most sinful time of my life. My soul was thirsting, but I had no idea until I let Jesus into my heart, & He saved my soul, that what - or Who - I was thirsting for was HIM! But He knew. And He sheltered me & kept me safe along my sinful road until, in His good timing, was the day of my salvation. One of the best, most humbling compliments I ever received was from a friend I've had since school days. She was raised in a Christian home, went through a time of back-sliding, but recommitted her life to the Lord after seeing the changes in me a few years after I had become a Christian. I just recently found this out. Incredible. So...don't let anyone tell you that God can't/won't work through Contemporary Christian music or modern versions of the Bible. You sing & read what God has called YOU to, but don't put God in a box...none of us are big enough to say what He will or won't/can or can't use. I serve a mighty God! I serve an awesome God! He sees through my filth & uses even me & He does it in His own way. I have seen His power & His glory & that's why I will praise Him as long as I live.

Oh, this old fallen world is a dry & weary land. There are days when the daily news shows nearly suck the marrow right out of my bones. But THAT is when I feel the call to worship.

I am a worshipper.

The Lord used Contemporary Christian music to lead me to Himself & I am forever grateful to Him for it. I love to praise the Lord! I love to sing praises to my Lord! I owe Him everything & He LETS me do the thing I love the most...opportunity to lead His people to His Throne in song. Worship satisfies my soul like "the richest of foods." I reminds me that both Jesus & the Holy Spirit are interceding ~ they are PRAYING ~ for ME! (AND for YOU!) Oh, how humbling, how precious are His thoughts concerning me! (Ps. 139:17-18)

I fall asleep praying & thinking upon the things of the Lord...reviewing the day, for good or bad, & trying to see the Lord's hand in it all. When the day has been a stress or a disappointment, I try to see where the Lord's hand was in it all...was I used by Him at any point?...Did I block Him here or there?

But through it all I know that He is my Help...that I sing in the shadow of His wings...that my soul clings ever so tightly to Him...& that He will always, ALWAYS up-hold me in His righteous right hand.
