to stand

Taking a few minutes to write for what the Father has done, as I look out into a new day in several areas of my life. Psalm 40:1 - 3 was my Scripture writing for the day, and it fits so beautifully...

"I waited patiently for the LORD; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God..."

Each phrase a picture of the past and present,
works in progress and lessons learned and learned again.

Oh, gracious! The lesson of waiting patiently?
When will I ever learn it?
So thankful that He keeps teaching, leading,
patiently helping my becoming.

His faithfulness,
His mercy,
and that He heard and hears me
is such a gift. 

And there's just so much hope
--in the fact that He has set my feet on a rock.
I do have a firm, sure place to stand.
Every day. All day long. And in the night watches.

My songs? They're all Him, too.

Writing praise ♥
