“Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge.¬†

I said to the LORD, “You are my Master!

Every good thing I have comes from you.‚ÄĚ

The godly people in the land are my true heroes!

I take pleasure in them!

Troubles multiply for those who chase after other gods.

I will not take part in their sacrifices of blood

or even speak the names of their gods. LORD, you alone

are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land.

What a wonderful inheritance! I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me.

I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken,  for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.

My body rests in safety. For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.

You will show me the way of life,¬†granting me the joy of your presence¬†and the pleasures of living with you forever.”

Psalm 16 NLT

My Light and My Salvation


“The¬†Lord¬†is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the¬†Lord¬†is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ¬†When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came¬†upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. ¬†Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the¬†Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the¬†Lord¬†all the days of my life, to behold the beauty¬†of the¬†Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. ¬†And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;¬†¬†I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the¬†Lord.

Hear, O¬†Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. ¬†When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face,¬†Lord, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. ¬†When my father and my mother forsake me, then the¬†Lord¬†will take me up. ¬†Teach me thy way, O¬†Lord, and lead me in a plain¬†¬†path, because of mine enemies. ¬†Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. ¬†I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the¬†Lord¬†in the land of the living. ¬†Wait on the¬†Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the¬†Lord.” ¬†Psalm 27
