a psalm

A Psalm by Believer when she hit rock bottom and realised the only direction for help was from above

O Lord it is unto you
I lift up my eyes
and my soul and my hands
I lift up myself
For I have sunk to the depths
I smile to the world
But I cry on the inside
I feel overwhelmed
and am heavy with thought (Selah)
But through the darkness
the light of your word shines through
you said you are the I AM
Jehovah Shammah, ever present
Jehovah Shalom, Prince of Peace
Jehovah Tsikendu, my righteousness
Jehovah Rohi, my Shepherd
You are with me always
I can never hide from your presence
so I receive the strength i need
to overcome this day
and I will rejoice
because those who know their God
are strong and do exploits

"I will lift up my eyes to d hills, where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, my father who will never abandon me."

God bless you deariee.

Mehn this my dearest believer, I tell you it is indeed well. I was once where you are right now, and If I was told I will be where I am right now, I would have stonned the bearer of such a news.. infact if the Lord Himself told me, I may have believed but wondered back to my rock bottom state. But trust me, believe me when I say beliver the Lord who has set you apart. Who has loved you with an everlasting love, whose plans for you are so great that it has never ever entered into the heart of man, has prepared something super super for you. You are now in the birth pains of your greatness, and soon it will be realised. Hold on just for a moment longer, you'll see what the Lord has been doing even before you were conceived in your mother womb. Girl I am rejoicing with you, mehnn all is greatly well.

Love you babe.

I breathed an Amen as I read this. God is your strength. Thank you for highlighting that the answers to all our spoken and unspoken prayers truly comes from God.

God bless

Aburo, Life is full of different terrains. From the brookside, to the valley of shadow death, still waters, green pastres, mountain.

One thing is constant GOD'S LOVE and GRACE.

There is no depth that is hands can not reach.
