Psalm 16 (NIV)
Keep me safe, my God,for in you I take refuge.I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” I say of the holy people who are in the land,“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.” Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.
Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;you make my lot secure.The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,nor will you let your faithful[b] one see decay.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Psalm 17:6-9 (NIV)
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love,you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.
In Jesus name
My Lord, you have shown me great mercy.
You have shown me great love and showered me with the grace that satisfies my soul.
I long for your presence, to be with you, to be by your side, to behold the awesomeness of your glory. Your face shines upon me, and I am lost in your splendor.
Take me and hold me, because only in you do I know truth, love, and kindness that is real.
I know that you hear me crying, you know my heart longs to yell out your name and call you to come, come rescue me, my Lord.
I hear people say “I love you,” but the words are empty. Without You, we are desperately empty vessels, walking around with the hope of empty dreams for a fulfilling life.
Thank you, my Lord!
