"...I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction,
out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,
And has not turned to the proud,
nor to those who lapse into falsehood..."
"...He who planted the ear, does He not hear?
He who formed the eye, does He not see?
He who chastens the nations, will He not rebuke,
Even He who teaches man knowledge?
The Lord knows the thoughts of man,
That they are a mere breath..."
"...I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord."
"...This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
O Lord, do save, we beseech You;
O Lord, we beseech You, do send prosperity!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord;
We have blessed you from the house of the Lord..."
**Precious sisters in the LORD do not despair! I know you suffer and I understand long standing agonies.
Life seems too much and maybe it is too much, but do not despair! the LORD is with you!
He sees you, He knows you.
Continue to run to Him for you will find safety and comfort in Him. He will guide you and help you.
Your circumstances may never change, but the LORD will be your strength!
Continually give your suffering to Him and it just may be that in the land of the living you may yet see His hand's work, but if not ~ He is still working and you will see His beautiful handwork in glory.
Meanwhile, let us give Him the glory due to His marvelous name right now while we have life!
Praise to the LORD God Almighty!
