I am the works of your hands O Lord,
though I may feel worn and discouraged,
still my hope is in you.
Give to me, the song of the Lord,
that I may praise your name
Give to me the strength of your love,
that I may continue on this journey.
Give to me the perserverance of your Son,
that I may recieve character, and character,
Thank you Lord, for the hope we have in Christ Jesus. Thank you, for pouring out your love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom you have given us.
Thank you Father, that now we who live in accordance with the Spirit have our minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind that is controlled by the Spirit, is life and peace. Since now we have been justified by the Blood of Jesus, and we are saved from God’s wrath. Through the death of your only begotten Son, having been reconciled to You, we have been saved through His Life, which we now live.
In Jesus Name, Amen
I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted.
May all the kings of the earth praise you, O Lord, when they hear the words of your mouth.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord, for the glory of the Lord is great.
Though the Lord is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you perserve my life; you stretch out your hand
against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your love, O Lord, endures forever-
do not abandon the Works of Your Hands.
Don’t give up, the Lord has not forgotten you. This Psalm is not something I myself looked up; because I too feel discouraged, and if I am feeling discouraged, then I know that I am not alone. This is encouragement from the Lord.
Just so you know where we are: Jess and i have placed our home on a short sell. We don’t know where we will be moving next, so as we go from one day at a time, we are learning how to walk in small faith steps too. We know that the Lord is walking us through this and times, like to today, i was overwhelmed and felt completely drain to the point that i just wanted to sleep. I have learned so far, that no matter where I am, I can call on His Name, and He refreshes me. This is a wonderful gift from God. His Grace sustains us in all situations, and we recieve life and peace in Christ.
