~ My God How Great Thou ART! ~
I searched for You on the seaside,
In the pristine, white-foam sand...
"I need You, oh my Father,
To take my weak and flailing hand!"
"I cannot stand alone, my Lord,
Come, now and be with me!
I cannot walk upon the shore
Of this wild and tempest sea!"
I sought You in the forest,
Where the lush, wild fern grows;
I looked for You on mountaintops,
Through the bitter, driven snows.
I went into the desert ~
Sun bleached sands desolate and dry...
There my soul was so thirsty,
I could find no tears to cry.
"My God, where are You hiding?
Don't You hear my plea?
I need You, oh, my Father,
Come, now, and carry me!"
It was there in the silence,
His gentle voice I softly heard,
Like a mighty whisper...
Each and every word!
"My child, I did not leave you.
I've been right by your side.
I've caught every tear drop
That your broken heart has cried!
I walked before you on those mountains
So you could find your way...
I was there in the lush, green forest..
I hear every word you say!
My footprints were there beside yours
In that pristine, white beach sand...
And when I was not carrying you,
I was holding tightly to your hand!"
"Oh, now I see that You were with me...
You were here within my aching heart...
Filling me up with with such longing...
My God, HOW GREAT THOU ART!"

I Am Whom I Am but by the AMAZING GRACE of God!
I Am but His conduit!
To God I give ALL the Praises, Honor and Glory...FOREVER!
(1) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
(2) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
(3) He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for his name's sake.
(4) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy
rod and thy staff they comfort me.
(5) Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: thou anointest my head with oil/ my cup runneth over.
(6) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my
life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalms 23 (KJV)
(David's confidence in God's grace
A Psalm of David)
