Wildfire Wednesday ~ My Psalm

I'm on vacation this week, so this is a re-post. An easy one to choose. This is what I've had the joy of staring at each evening and my heart has been singing His praise. I posted this Psalm a few months back and it's been playing in my heart all week. Hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of summer!

My Psalm:

You are the author and perfecter of my faith. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. You know each hair that is on my head and capture each tear that falls from my eye, holding them in a bottle. My days were already in your hand before I breathed my first breath.

You desire to bless me. You clothe me more beautifully than the lilies of the field. You’ve set creation out for my pleasure. You throw open my storehouse and overflow it with your provision. And you’re preparing a place for me, even now, in your presence.

Your words are sweeter than honey on my lips. I seek you, Oh Lord. You ways are higher than my ways, your thoughts far beyond mine. You created a plan for me. You know my comings and goings. You see when I wake and when I lie. My path is made straight by you, the lamp unto my feet.

Peace that surpasses all comprehension flows from your hand and surrounds me. Your joy is my strength. When I am weak, You, Oh Lord, are strong. You will never leave me or forsake me. You hide me in the cleft of the rock, lift me high above my enemies. You deliver me.

Death sought to claim You, yet You were victorious. Though You knew I was still a sinner, You endured the cross, shedding Your blood for me. No greater love is known then shall a man lay down his life for another.

I will praise you, for if I am silent, the rocks will cry out. You are great and mighty, deserving of our praise. You are my God, my King, my Savior, the Rock of my Salvation. You are my Cornerstone.

You transcend time. You are the Beginning and the End. You fulfilled every prophecy. And you are coming again.

Amen! Hosanna in the Highest!! Blessed be the name of the Lord.


  1. Ohhh, I love this Psalm, but I've never read it in this version. Beautiful!

    Enjoy your time away, Susan.

  2. Love your picture. And don't you just love Psalms? Every one of them are just so inspiring, sweet and beautiful.

  3. It's a lake I grew up at ~ my grandparents had a cottage on it and I've gone there since I was a baby:) And I must admit, that's a piece I wrote a few months back and it's full of familiar pieces from God's Word that were singing in my heart one morning. It's not a version you'll find anywhere other than in my head:)
