***I posted this paraphrase of one of my favorite Psalms a while back, and I share it again today because the last few weeks have been hard. None of my problems have been earth-shattering, but they have been life-altering and just plain annoying. Through it all, I’ve been
a tower of spiritual strength and insight a grumpy, discouraged mess, and I need this Psalm to be my prayer.
Lord, I am grabbing hold of Your hand, and I’m not letting go until You show me I’m Your treasure.
May it be your prayer, too.
Be blessed today.
I lift my eyes to You
to You Whose throne is in Heaven.
As the eyes of a maid look to the Hands of her Master,
so my eyes are glued on You.

my tears falling on Your feet,
Your Hand resting on my head,
and I’m not leaving
until You show me Your mercy,
until You grace me,
until I know I am Your treasure.
Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us.
