Psalm of Trust
The Lord is my Partner,
I need not be frantic.
He provides my peace of mind,
He removes my tiredness.
He is forever faithful even when I wander.
He sends angels in disguise to correct and guide me.
Although I walk among the cynics, and hate mongers,
even on the evening news when I see a young man
beaten and left like a scarecrow to die on a fencepost,
I am not controlled by fear and irritability.
In consolation and desolation, You teach and comfort me.
You prepare a life for me in the presence of my skeptics.
You provide more of this world’s goods than
I could ever stuff in my closet.
My heart overflows.
Your care and concern are palpable to me.
Your forgiveness total,
No person has seen You and lived.
I long to be with You forever,
To finally see You, and live.
