At a dark and frightening time in my life, I didnít know or care whether I could continue. At the right time, people and resources were provided that allowed me to come away from that scary edge. I believe that the Lord, in His wisdom, marshaled his servants and His Word to show me the way out. This psalm was composed as I was emerging from that horrible place
Into a pit I descend.
Into the darkness I fall.
Its inky blackness overwhelms me.
Its silence envelops me.
Darkness wraps around me like a net.
A net that is years long.
A net of fine mesh and strong knots
This snare seeks to strangle me.
In my despair, I cry out in pain.
In my anguish, I try to escape.
My entire being screams for release.
Out of the void comes a whisper.
A soft light fills the emptiness.
A gentle breeze caresses my contorted face.
A cool cloth sooths my fevered brow.
A loving hand lifts me from the pit.
A sharp sword divides the strong knots.
A strong arm shields me from harm.
A Promise protects me from the unknown.
This Mighty Warrior displays His splendor.
He reveals Himself in His Creation.
He crushes whole planets with a word.
Fragile infants are safe in His hands.
He waters the earth and warms the soil.
He sends the wind to do His bidding.
His shed blood waters me and His love warms my heart.
His Spirit fills me with life.
His love for me is eternal
His thoughts of me are unending.
His Sacrifice has healed me forever.
His Faithfulness is a Promise that cannot be broken.
My soul gives thanks to my Redeemer.
My spirit will praise His Name forever.
