Psalm 61 – For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

lighthouse_02.jpg I read this Psalm aloud this morning and felt very inspired and encouraged by God’s love and the strength that I can gain from Him alone. Makes me want to sing praises to Him more everyday 🙂 Dear Father in Heaven, I want to surrender my life, my body, and will to you. But I confess, there are little things (and maybe some big things), that I keep from ever placing on that altar. Things I don’t want to give up. To the best of my ability, I pledge today to live for you in a way that leaves nothing outside your Lordship and control. I offer you me all that I have and am to be yours today. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Psalm 61

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.

I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
Selah

For you have heard my vows, O God;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.

May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.

Then will I ever sing praise to your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.
