I love the Lord. He heard my cry!This week has just been one of those amazing weeks. I had a serious need. I cried out to God. It was miraculously provided for!! Too cool!
Provision came from so many different sources, and none of those sources even knew. I told only God what i needed (oh - and my flatmate... but she is honour bound to listen to my whinging... it's part of the flatmate code of ethics...) and within 48hrs, he provided exactly what i needed. Actually, in true God style, it ended up being more than i needed.
I love seeing Gods hand working so obviously. It's amazing. What i don't like is being in a position where i'm in need of such miracles. Where i have to admit I don't have it all worked out. Pride much?? But the reality is, we are all wretchedly poor, sick, naked and blind, and in desperate need of Him. But few of us like to admit it. That pride again?? Probably... But perhaps that's the secret of seeing God move: humbling ourselves and being desperate for Him. Revelation 3:17-18 certainly seems to tell us that!
About Psalm 138 - thanksgiving for the lords favourBut I digress!! The last 24hrs, i've had all the Psalms that state "i love the lord, he heard my cry" running through my head. It seemed fitting that this weeks song should be a song of thanksgiving (thanks for the idea, Brad Misso)! And it definitely required a beat :) Based mainly on Psalm 138 (with touches of Psalm 34 in there too - just because i love the line "my soul will boast in the lord"!). Enjoy!
Psalm 138: 1 I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods.
2 I will bow down toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name.
3 On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth will give thanks to You, O LORD, When they have heard the words of Your mouth.
5 And they will sing of the ways of the LORD, For great is the glory of the LORD.
6 For though the LORD is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.
