Psalm 63:1-8

A friend came and shared this passage with me before I went in to surgery. Now, as I am recovering, it totally lifts my spirits. I am unable to physically eat or drink anything, but this Psalm reminds me to hunger and thirst for God.

1 O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.

3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
4 Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

6 When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
7 Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
8 My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.

Praise God for His goodness to me!!

Oh my goodness, Leah!! I haven't been keeping up with blogs lately and I had NO IDEA you were so sick. I'm so sorry that I haven't been praying for you. That will start now! I love you my sweet sister. I wish I was closer and could offer meals and child-care.
