Now, some of you may or may not know this... but I am a *believer*. I believe in Christ Jesus and am a Christian. I don't particularly flaunt it, but I am. I haven't been to church in awhile, but that's not because of God, that's just me trying to get into a groove in my life. No offense to God, at all, because I know He is always with me.
Anyhow... tonight, again, I can't sleep. Tomorrow morning is going to be crappy (read: mtg with boss) and I'm not looking forward to it.
So, I decided to come downstairs and read my favorite Psalm. Psalm 27. Oh how I love that Psalm.
Then, I thought, why not try to read every Psalm this month... so, I read 1-4 tonight. Psalms 3 and 4, in particular, are just wonderful. So, I thought I would share.
Psalm 3 (coloring is mine)
O Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me
"God will not deliver him" Selah
But you are a shield around me, O Lord;
you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
To the Lord I cry aloud
and he answers from his holy hill.
I lie down and sleep;
I wake again because the Lord sustains me.
I will not fear the tens of thousands
drawn up against me on every side
Arise, O Lord!
Deliver me, O my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people. Selah
Psalm 4 is just as wonderful. One line in particular:
In your anger do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent. Selah
Search your heart and be silent.
Peace. May the Lord be with you.
