PSALM  63:4*

 

     To praise You as long as I live

     is my unfolding path of eternal love.

     To do something forever

     shows loyalty, faithfulness, character,

     patience, endurance, respect, truth,

     and todah**—the lifting of hands—

     gives praise and worship to Jesus.

     He is worthy.

     Everything I offer Him

     is nothing in comparison

     to what He does for me.

     He hears if I praise Him.

     He sees if I worship Him.

     Praying and worshipping are my true gifts to Him.

     Do I bring Him into my life?

Will I pass His test?

Will I sanctify Him forever?

Will I be at His side?

Will I pray?
Will todah be part of my life?

     There are Divine gifts,

     rewards, and miracles

     that only God can give.

     Do I notice these gifts when they occur,

     or is it my doings that make them happen?

     Is God’s existence self-begot or not?

     Is death ending or not?

     Jesus is here for many reasons.

     How do I honor Him?

 

       *I will praise You as long as I live
       and in Your name I will lift up my hands.

 

       **Hebrew for an extension of the hand.

       A choir of worshippers.

Psalms For The Soul: A Psalm Of Brandy

All About Me
Here is my little psalm
Although I worry all day long
I trust in Him, palm to palm
And just repeat this happy song
My Lord, My Savior

In you I trust
Though my behavior
may often bust
I hope you see
the progress I make
And trust in me
for Heaven's sake.

AMEN

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I love the books of Psalms in the bible & decided to write one for myself to help with my Generalized Anxiety Disorder so that I could read it & remember to thank God for helping me through it day to day.
