I can’t think of words anymore beautiful than this Psalm to close the week with.
I truly desire these will become my words and these thoughts become my thoughts. That I can push ‘me’ and the world out of the way, and that I can say without hesitation, I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Gal 2:20
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
They who seek my life will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth. They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God’s name will praise him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced. Psalm 63
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
