I bless the day I found you, I’ll always stay around you… now and forever…. “I love you, God—you make me strong. God is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live…”TM
In times of trouble, I can depend completely on you. You are “my rescuing knight. My God—the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout.”TM
You always reach me in the nick of time. Sometimes it gets pretty close and I panic. “The hangman’s noose was tight at my throat; devil waters rushed over me. Hell’s ropes cinched me tight; death traps barred every exit.”TM
But, I never stopped believing in you. I never stopped crying out to You. And “From his palace he hears my call; my cry brings me right into his presence—a private audience!”TM
My wagons are in a circle…I’ve used my last bullet! No reinforcements are in sight. No cavalry to depend on! There’s no trumpet charge. There are no flags flying. When things seem completely hopeless. That’s when he makes his entrance. Nothing could be more spectacular. “Earth wobbles and lurches; huge mountains shake like leaves, Quake like aspen leaves because of his rage. His nostrils flare, bellowing smoke; his mouth spits fire. Tongues of fire dart in and out; he lowers the sky. He steps down; under his feet an abyss opens up. He’s riding a winged creature, swift on wind-wings. Now he’s wrapped himself in a trench coat of black-cloud darkness. But his cloud-brightness bursts through, spraying hailstones and fireballs. Then God thundered out of heaven; the High God gave a great shout, spraying hailstones and fireballs. God shoots his arrows—pandemonium! He hurls his lightnings—a rout!”TM Victory is mine! I am more than a conqueror!

I had been cast into “that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning.”TM There was no reason for me to live. Life was empty and meaningless. There was no reason to go on. But “God stuck by me….I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!”TM
I was sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away. I had nothing to live for, nothing gonna come my way. Then there was You, God. “God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him.”TM With you in my life, and your spirit within me, things began to change. “When I got my act together, he gave me a fresh start. Now I’m alert to God’s ways; I don’t take God for granted. Every day I review the ways he works; I try not to miss a trick. I feel put back together, and I’m watching my step. God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.”TM Humpty Dumpty had no hope. But I had you!
“Suddenly, God, you floodlight my life…”TM I can see clearly now! Finally, I know what I’m to do. Finally, there is some true significance and meaning to life! Now I can act! “I smash the bands of marauders,”TM who have enslaved me to sin and fear. “I vault the highest fences…”TM escaping from their bonds! I just want to stand up and scream, “C’mon, follow me to freedom in Christ! You can make it, too.” “What a God! His road stretches straight and smooth…Everyone who runs toward him makes it.”TM
“Is there any god like God?…Is not this the God who armed me, then aimed me in the right direction? Now I run like a deer; I’m king of the mountain.”TM
My sorrows had overwhelmed me, but “You made them… turn tail… They cried “uncle” but Uncle didn’t come; They yelled for God and got no for an answer. I ground them to dust; they gusted in the wind. I threw them out, like garbage in the gutter.”TM
“That’s why I’m thanking you, God, all over the world. That’s why I’m singing songs that rhyme your name.”TM
