My mouth tends to get me in a lot of trouble and I was lamenting about a recent conversation I had had with my husband (I constantly pray Psalm 141:1-4 over myself!)Defeating thoughts were plaguing me and I finally decided that the best way to combat them was to DIG into the Word and see what the Lord, Himself, had to say about me. He is so good and always provides HOPE in the hopeless times. I am so thankful that His compassion NEVER fails and His mercies are new every morning! (Lam. 3:22-23)
I can't believe I'm here at Your throne again
Confessing once again my mouthful of sin.
I can't believe this tongue that brings You praise
Is the same tiny spark that sets the forest ablaze.
But Your Word says sin shall not be my master
And Your Word says I've already been freed
And Your Word says that I am not lacking
For the power that raised Christ from the dead is living in me,
Yes, the power that raised Christ from the dead is living in me.
Here I am again bowing down at Your throne.
I'm tired and I'm weary, I have no strength of my own.
In my weakness you are strong and in dying I live
And I know apart from You, I've got nothing to give.
But Your Word says trust in You with my whole heart
And Your Word says You will make my path straight
And Your Word says You are doing a new thing
You bring water to this wasteland and in this desert make a spring,
You bring water to this wasteland and in the desert make a spring.
And in Your Word I found a place that says You take delight in me,
You will quiet me with Your love, and You rejoice over me.
Oh, how I long to hear that song flowing over Your lips,
And in my heart I hear the words going something like this:
Child, My Word says your're the apple of My eye,
And My Word says you're the reason that I died.
I will leave the ninety-nine to go and get the one,
And I will take you in My arms by the Blood of My Son...
And you can rest in My arms, the battle's already won! Hallelujah!
