MyPsalms 58-60 ~ Letters to God


MYPSALMS   58-60

 

I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!

My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”

MyPsalms 55-57 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)

I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page

MyPsalm 58
Day 58
Read Psalm 58 in your own bible or here: Psalm 58

Dear Lord,

I come to you Lord in humility, in awe, in amazement of your love for me and for us all. I am merely like an ant in comparison to you, like a speck of dust and yet you know me intimately and completely. You know everything about me.

Help me Lord to learn more about you, about your amazing love, your outstretched arms, your far reaching grace and your whisper of comfort to my soul.

Help me to hear you and see you this week in all I do, everywhere I go, whomever I talk to, in all I sense and in all I hear. Let your words ring true to me, let me hear them so clearly that I know in my spirit what you are saying and showing me and fill me with your wisdom to fulfill your plans for my life too.

You are so faithful, you stand with me through thick and thin. You are the one I am to rely on in every circumstance and its by your grace that I will make it through.

Remind me of your presence with me as I see your beauty all around me and remind me of the victory that you have already won for me, remind me of your protection and your vision for my life every day.

In Jesus Name, Amen

MyPsalm 59

Day 59
Read Psalm 59 in your own bible or here: Psalm 59
Dear Lord,

Open my eyes to see things as they really are Lord. Deception and lies are around me at times and they are covered in clothing that is so familiar to me that its easy to fall for unless you look more closely.

Give me wisdom and help me sense and discern what is good and bad around me. Shine your light on the falsities and deception around me and alert me to them well ahead of time.

Thank you for your protection over me Lord and over my friends and family. Let us not fall into the snare of the enemy at any point but Lord please be our guide each and every day and give us the sense to know what to do and what not to do too.

Thank you for your precious armour of protection on us and over us and guarding us at every point we turn.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 60

Day 60

Read Psalm 60 in your own bible or here: Psalm 60

 

Dear Lord,

When I hear Your voice its always life to my soul. I know I am such a busy body, always running here and there…

Please forgive me Lord I want to ‘make’ those precious moments when I can hear your words, your will and can learn your way.

Wake me in the night to hear your voice, your words of life, when all is still and my mind is at rest. I love those times when I can hear you unhindered by the activity and atmospheres around me.

Interrupt me in my day, when I am in the middle of things because I need to commune with you every minute of every day and I want you to be a part of all I do, say, think and feel.

Please raise your voice if I am not hearing you because your voice above all else is speaking truth to me… truth in my inner being is what sets me free.

My desire is to know You above and more than all else, so that I know if I let myself fall, without a doubt you would catch me.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!

MyPsalm 55
Day 55
Read Psalm 55 in your own bible or here: Psalm 55

Dear Lord,

I know where You have been…. but I don’t know where I have been. As a matter of fact yes I do!

I got caught up in something that I needed to do, it took me way out of routine and that took me right into the middle of that project and the limited time I had to complete it, and so I lost all sense of time and day…. thats where I was Lord… but you were still here Lord.

Thank you that whether I am ‘here’ or not that you are always here! You are never-changing and ever faithful.
You are constant and remain, you don’t have to go anywhere for any reason, you simply are with me.

Lord I consciously remove myself from ‘there’ and bring myself right back to ‘here’ with you now. Please forgive me small attention span and my ability to be so easily distracted.

I reach out for Your hand, please never let me go  

In Jesus Name Amen

 

MyPsalm 56
Day 56
Read Psalm 56 in your own bible or here: Psalm 56
Dear Lord,

Orchestrate my symphony, help me follow your lead, the highs the lows and the melody, let it be known and let it be heard in my life.

Let my life play in harmony with yours and with the other instruments playing around me. Let me not miss a beat and let me play in perfect timing to what you have written on the music sheet of my life.

Let me play with such sensitivity to the direction and intonation of the music and always help me be in tune with you.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 57

Day 57

Read Psalm 57 in your own bible or here: Psalm 57

 

Dear Lord,

Watch over all of those near and dear. Their needs and cries touch my heart so how much more would they touch yours?

You intimately know them and what is going on in their lives. You know their pain and their distress, the difficulties they face.

I don’t understand it and neither do they. Help them keep their faith, open their eyes to know your hope, your words, your wisdom. Sustain them Lord and destroy the work of the enemy in their lives in every place that they have been robbed. You have already defeated him and taken the victory for each one.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!

I tend towards peace


I always tend towards peace. Tension aggression, shouting, swearing, loud voices, accusations, ranting, always immediately cause me to shut my gates. 

Ok so I have told you all before, I grew up with a lot of that… Not the swearing though, but raised voices, accusations, arguments, verbal tirades, they could go on for hours and hours. You may not have been the one on centre stage taking the floor and being pulled to pieces but once it started everyone got a chance.

 

I shudder to think about those many many many times now, and actually I only remember them as a whole the details are very much a blur and I’m more than happy for them to stay that way. I wonder if I was the person I am now what would I have done back then but that would never have been possible.

 

A counselor I saw a few years ago suggested something that she thought would help me when I found myself in any even vaguely similar situations she called it joining.

 

She said that people need validation and even if you don’t like the style of the delivery of their venting of a situation that what you can do is ‘join’ them and validate their feelings, or what has happened and still maintain your who you are without being untrue yo yourself.

 

It’s really just so amazing though how our personality and the make up our character is so very strong…. To me it feels like a raging current and I can only go with the flow of that especially in this area of my life, to pull myself out if it is like going against that raging current…. meaning it’s extremely difficult.

 

Learned fear together with being driven towards peace, and being a positive optimistic not to mention faith filled person makes it very very difficult for me to ‘join’ the other person in their venting.

 

You see even when there is a lot truth to what someone is saying if they are saying it in an aggressive way I respond to the way the message is delivered by tending towards peace, immediately, avoiding increasing tension etc and therefore going far from even temporarily ‘joining’ someone.

 

The next things that come into play are being positive, optimistic and faith and people often don’t want to hear that but that is my source, what I know and what I believe and I can’t give people what I don’t believe in.

 

Finding a line here in a tricky situation is not easy but I have learned some more about this and I am beginning to find the demarcation line that will help me to keep my peace, even as I tend towards it!
