The following personal Psalm was written in 2009 as an assignment for my Bible Study Fellowship class. These words continue to be deeply embedded in my heart. I am thankful beyond words for the gift of God’s mercy and never-ending love for His creation.
My Psalm of God’s Mercy
LORD, Your love and mercy surround me!
Each day my strength comes from You!
I call on You and You hear my plea,
I speak Your name and You bring life to me.
My hope is in You.
You are my God; there is no other!
I will trust You all of my days.
My lips will continually praise You.
Because of Your great love and mercy
I shall ever praise You.
You dwell continually in my heart and mind.
Your praise is on my lips and in my heart.
How I praise You for Your mercy and forgiveness!
How I praise You for Your grace, guidance, and joy!
How I praise You for Your love!
Throughout the day, my thoughts turn to Your love for me;
It is a love that You gave me when least deserved;
It is a personal love like no other.
It is a love made possible by Your son, Jesus.
It is a love You gave freely to all who will receive.
Jesus, You are the light of the world,
In whom there is no darkness.
Jesus, You are the hope of the world,
In You there is eternal life.
Jesus, You are the Light of my life.
