A psalm to Jehovah

On my hands and knees
I came to you

In the gloomiest of rain
when mine taught became

of course,
on those days which I did feel
a hundred fold
Blessed !

Yet now Father;
erect I do feel,
for i know You !

..“Psalm ~ `The Beauty of The Lord` ~ 27”..

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh
My enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear
Though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident.
One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life
To behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion
In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me
He shall set me high upon a rock ~
And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger
You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.
Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
Do not deliver me to the will of my advesaries
For false witnesses have risen against me, and such as breathe out violence.
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness....
Of the Lord, in the land of the living ~
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart
....“Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

A Psalm of Resolve

                 Psalm 61
          Hear my cry, O God;
         attend unto my prayer. 
 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,
    when my heart is overwhelmed. 
    Lead me to the rock that is higher than I; 

Merciful God trusting in your love and grace
Broken and contrite I am fallen on my face
The world is all upside down, and I'm bereft
Of father, mother, friend; vanites have left
Me nothing I can hold, and sometimes alone
I wonder amidst the raging storms of grief
What else shall I do, I have done all to atone
And yet your justice despise my soul's relief.
It seemed I am pulled down when I need be
Up, battered and wretched, tempted to flee.
O God who is my all, my tower and my hope
My feet falters in dark valleys, and yet I grope
Preferring your chastisment to life's applause
I stand committed to the promise of they laws
No where else to go, but higher still I climb
To find the Rock of all faith, and peace sublime.

Praise and Knowledge Psalm 119 v 7

 The psalmist states his desire
 that is to God give praise
 but not only this does he speak
 as also with a upright heart he says

 We would do very well
 to follow this self same way
 making sure our heart is right
 before we praise our God today

 To achieve this we must learn
 God's judgement of righteousness
 so to the divine throne we come
 for our minds God would bless

 Having received this knowledge from God
 we must daily keep this truth in hold
 so to give praise with enlightenment
 but making sure our hearts not cold

 Now having known God's ways
 we came giving Him His due praise
 having been changed in heart and mind
 this is our God for all our days

From Psalm 23:5

From Psalm 23:5

"Thou preparest a table before me, in the presence of mine enemies"......
On a table before me,
I see
A bowl of Peace
as I look I see mine enemy worry

I see
A bowl of Love
in the presence of mine enemy hate

I see
A bowl of Joy
in the presence of mine enemy weakness

A Feast for me, and you
in the face of our enemies.

*^_^* "Psalm 23" *^_^*

The Lord is my Shepherd ~

I shall not want....

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures

He leadeth me beside the still waters

He restoreth my Soul ~

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness

For His namesake....

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I will fear no evil for thou art with me ~

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over....

Surely goodness and Mercy shall follow me All the days of my life

And, I Will dwell in the House of The Lord, forever ~

A Psalm for the Prisoner

O Lord, hear my simple cry;
set this weary captive free!
For I’m condemned by my past,
imprisoned by the dungeon of me.

Break the restraints of attachment
that are distressing my soul -
Destroy the chains of my ignorance,
which continue to undermine Your control.

Forcefully storm the stony gates
that shelter the stronghold of my heart.
Let the destructive plague be swept away!
I thirst for Your Presence, as the woodland hart.

The shadow of Your magnificent wings,
protect me from the terrors of the night.
Shine Your Light into my spirit, thus allowing me…
To firmly stand by faith and not by human sight.

Lord, I offer this pledge to You -
Yours, are my love and humble devotion,
in exchange for your unerring counsel
and my acceptance of Your Salvation.

For now, a sentry of angels surround me,
forming a holy prayer circle of peace.
Embrace me with Your loving kindness,
as I desire… Your permanent release.

Psalm 91, Hebrews 11:1, Luke 4:18, Psalm 102:20, John 8:12,31-36, Psalm 42:1-2

Born of my own pain,ripped apart by the canines of my own form of existence. Steaped in 
the darkness for my eyes have been shut to the light long before the lotus of my life 
blossomed. The attempted ressurection of the damned soul that was crucified for sins 
committed in subcontious existence,the world has yet suffered dearly at the wrath of my 
pain and in it i ascended to be among you,a place I didnt exist and thus you have bathed in 
a pool of my lies and basked in the light of my inequities. Doves never did fly with crows and 
the dark always creeps away from the light. From now on where I go you cannot come and 
thus we cease to exist as before in the city of peace.

Woman's Psalm

Forgive me, Father, 
for I don't understand 
what I do. 
I don't know how or why 
my mind and spirit 
gets so caught in this hook , 
over and over. 
I yearn for You to refresh me, 
and refill my inner man. 
I yearn for truth, for love, for beauty, 
smiles, laughter, sunlight...
a calm blue sea..
a garden of boastful flowers. 
I yearn for my purpose, my duty, 
the Divine Direction. 
I yearn for an angelic lover 
to lie down and live with me. 
I ache to have a tiny creature in my arms 
with those bright and heavenly eyes 
that stare at me thinking that the world is innocent. 
I cry to be set free, 
the spell broken, 
the demons cast out, 
the shackles unlocked. 
I mourn over the golden and pink clouds 
that have abandoned me. 
I weep for the Father 
to pull me out of this snake-infested cradle, 
for Him to sweetly sing a soft sonnet 
of consolation that rocks me to sleep, 
escorts me back home. 
I desire to write madly with explosion...the way a mad man would play the fiddle. 
At this moment, I surrender. 
I bow to Thee. 
I submit to Thee. 

Here we are again. 
Let's put it to bed. 
Let's watch it scorch in the bonfire. 
Let's bless it as we bury it. 
Pour the dirt on down..down...down....
deep down into the dirt. 
It's going to be a battle. 
It always is. 
This is a big one. 
Nothing too big for Thee, 
the drum of my heart. 
" My Sweet girl, 
come to me. 
Eat and drink. Suffer no more. 
You are my dear,

A Psalm of Devotion to My Lord

At Your feet is where I desire to be
My Divine and Sovereign King,
For You are mighty and to be praised;
And so this heartfelt psalm I bring,

To the Ancient of Days, whom I magnify
I pledge my faithful unfaltering love
As I longingly gaze and wait for the day
When I join You in the Heavens above

Oh, praise Him all who hath tongue and speak
With fervent clamor let your voices peak
And to those of you unable to converse,
Raise your hands to the Lord of the Universe!

Give praise to He who waits on His bride,
Take your joy to the streets and do not hide!
For soon the trumpet call will sound
And we, His church, will be Heaven bound!

Oh, how I sincerely long to see Your face 
Almighty Master of Time and Space,
For You are Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End,
And this song of praise, to Your throne I send.

At Your feet is where I desire to be
My Divine and Sovereign King,
For You are mighty and to be praised;
And so this heartfelt psalm I bring,
