I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!
My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”
MyPsalms 13-15 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)
I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page
Read Psalm 13 in your own bible or here: Psalm 13
Lord you are bringing things to light
Things that I had long forgotten
Things that I thought didn’t matter
They may have hurt but they were forgotten
Things that I thought were of no consequence
It’s amazing how so many little things can add up
And then all of a sudden I realise there is a sting.
A sting here and a sting there, they started to appear.
If there is a sting there is pain
If there is pain, there is hurt
If there is hurt, there is still a problem
I can’t bring every single one of these memories to you
I bring this pattern to you, this collective area of my life.
And I ask you to begin to wash it away with your love.
Help me to let these things go with your release and with your freedom and peace.

It’s easy for me to write about what you are doing around me
But it’s what you are doing in me that is changing my world.
You see into the deep recesses of my heart
You know the things that pain me and catch me off guard.
You know every joy, every sorrow, every hope, every gladness.
You are doing miracles one by one
You are growing me
You are freeing me
You are renewing me
You are refreshing me
You are strengthening me
You are making me, me

So Lord you are doing some work in me. I caught a glimpse of an area that’s been hiding in the corner as it stuck its head out.
How did that happen all of a sudden? It’s not like it hasn’t come up before but all of a sudden I feel that I need some time to process these feelings.
After all they are not really going to go away and as a matter of fact that’s why I haven’t really dug into this area before because I don’t know if I can ‘un-feel’ something?
Is it possible to remove a sting that surrounds a memory? How about a whole lot of memories? I think that’s why I pushed these thoughts back into the corner. I didn’t think they made all that much impact but if every time I see a person that has hurt me at some stage and I feel a sting is still there then I am sure you must want to do something about it. Its like touching a sore spot.
Lord I don’t know if others feel the same way but its like I am seeing a pattern in my reactions, patterns in my memories even. You want to heal the wounds and even more so you want to get to the root of the problem and free me for my future. Thank you for being gentle with me and showing me the way
Hope you enjoy the journey!
