Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays!

caddo-7-word

This post is dedicated to our good friend Sis Caddo. Although she is temporary hiatus, my prayer is that she will remember how much we all love her, and I will continue with the Sis “Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays!” until she returns to us. Meanwhile, I know that she still stops by to visit her friends, and so in honor of Sis Caddo, who really loves acrostics, I tried my hand at an acrostic below. God bless you BIG Sis Caddo, we love you!!! 😀 Continue reading Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays!

How my soul longs for You, Lord!

1 As the deer longs for streams of water,
So I long for You, O God.
2 I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before Him?
3 Day and night I have only tears for food,
While my enemies continually taunt me, saying,
“Where is this God of yours?

 ~ Psalm 42:1-3 — NLT ~

So far, 2013 has been one of the most painful and difficult times of my life, and that’s saying a lot. I’ve been battered and bruised by the enemy of my soul, as I’ve suffered chronic acute pain, grief, and illness, followed by the deepest darkest depression I’ve ever experienced, and on top of that, terrible financial difficulty because I am no longer able to work. All of these things combined have also left me struggling with fear and anxiety. I keep trying to remember that God does not give us me a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind, but these things just keep attacking me from nowhere, while I am at my weakest.

Why Am I Discouraged?
Hope in GOD!

As the deer longs for streams of water,
so
 I long for YouO God.

2 I thirst for God, the living God.
    When can I go and stand before Him?
Day and night I have only tears for food,
    while my enemies continually taunt mesaying,
    “So,where is this God of yours?”

My heart is breaking as I remember

how it used to be:
I walked among the crowds of worshipers,
    leading a great processionto the house of God,
and singing for joy and giving thanks
    amid the sound of a great celebration!

Why am I discouragedWhy is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
    I will praise Him again my Savior

and my God!

Now I am deeply discouragedbut I will remember you—
even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan,
    from the land of Mount Mizar.
I hear the tumult of the raging seas
    as your waves and surging tides sweep over me.
But each day the Lord pours His unfailing
love upon me
and through each night I sing His songs,
    praying to God who gives me life.

O God my Rock,I cry out,
    “Why have You forgotten memy Lord?
Why must I wander around in grief,
    oppressedby my enemies?”
10 Their taunts break my bones.
    They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?”

11 Why am I discouraged?
    Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
    I will praise Him again — my Savior and my God!

~ Psalm 42 — NLT ~

My Psalm of Hope and Despair

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy!
I look to You for protection.

    I will hide beneath the shadow of Your wings
until the danger passes by.
I cry out to God Most High,
to God who will fulfill His purpose for me.
He will send help from heaven to rescue me,
disgracing those who hound me. 
Interlude

My God will send forth His unfailing love and faithfulness

O Lord, You know the pain I’ve dealt with for so long now!
You alone know my struggles and my deepest fears.
Only You know the torment I’ve suffered this year.
Father, I am weary, and weak and so broken. Continue reading My Psalm of Hope and Despair
