I can trust You
I know that …
So, why don’t I?
I really have no answer …
Forgive me for leaving You out
I know You have
a special purpose
for my life—
And I am confident
that You will
bring it to completion …
for sustaining me
when I falter.
Psalm 55:22,23; 56:3,4

Lord, You are our Shepherd; we shall lack nothing.
You make us lie down in green pastures,
lush and abundant for our needs.
You lead us beside quiet waters
from which we drink, unafraid,
finding a quenching for our thirsts.
You restore our souls–
even by merely Your presence in our lives.
You guide us in paths of righteousness,
directing our steps into that which brings You glory.
Even though we walk through the darkest valley,
in this world beset by the effects of sin,
we fear no evil, for You, our Daddy,
are with us each step of the way.
Your rod of holiness and Your staff of mercy bring comfort to us,
as You discipline us and embrace us with Your unfailing love.
You prepare a feasting table before us
in the presence of the enemies of our faith,
testifying to Your sovereign ability to meet all of our needs.
You anoint our minds with oil of gladness
–a joy inside, daily produced by the peace
of Your Spirit within us . . . abundantly overflowing!
Surely Your goodness and Your love will follow us
all the days of our lives,
and we will make our home in You,
as You dwell within us, forever. Amen.
–adapted from Psalm 23 by Kat Kreations/Kathi Isbell
Inside my head the thoughts spin round and round.
You’re teaching me things that seem so foreign.
One day my heart is dragging on the ground;
Then, the next, I know I’m destined to win.
I know how joyous life can be in You,
That from Your riches, You’ll meet all my needs.
You become the heart of all that I do.
In other lives, You use me to plant seeds.
I know I cannot put my hope in people;
You, O Lord, are to be my everything.
My mind knows about all these things; but then,
To my old thoughts, my feelings want to cling.
From where does freedom from confusion come?
Is it through surrender and in Your time
That thoughts and feelings in oneness become,
Allowing me to keep that upward climb?
Does feeling in limbo mean You control?
Or is it just a step along the way?
Though confused, my eyes are still on the goal:
In Christ’s likeness I will be on that Day.
