Sometimes, I weep without tears.
Most of the time, I see all my fears.
I can’t find words for what I feel.
I hate the times when my thoughts reel.
I’m disappointed in life — it is so hard.
But my heart still beats — God is my guard.
For the Lord gives wisdom,
And from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
He stores up effective counsel for the upright,
And is like a shield for those who live with integrity,
To guard the paths of the righteous and to protect the way of His pious ones.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity – every good way.
For wisdom will enter your heart, and moral knowledge will be attractive to you.
Discretion will protect you, understanding will guard you…
Am I upright? Do I live with integrity? Am I righteous or pious?
I don’t “feel” it, but He does declare it — in Christ.
I will follow His lead and search His word.
Do not be anxious about anything,
But in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
Present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
Will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Thank you, Lord, for Your precious and magnificent promises. Help me rest in You.
