Scripture Share... More thoughts to come.

Psalm 119:57-60

You are my portion, O Lord;
I have promised to obey your words.
I have sought your face with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.
I have considered my ways
And have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay
To obey your commands.

Hiding In Thee...

You have heard the phrase... I want to find a hole and crawl in it... Well that is how I have felt the last few days.  So many little annoyances that add up to stress and discontentment in my life.  I find myself easily annoyed with those I love and spend all my time with. 

Sometimes I just want to silence the world, my mind, my heart... just have no noise of any kind.  I can make my home totally quiet... but I am NO good at turning off my brain.  I envy those who can just lay their head on their pillow and be out! 

But just now, as I was telling my little ones and big ones good night.... the old hymn, "Hiding In Thee" came to mind.  What a wonderful and precious thought.  I do not need a hole in the ground.  I have a Savior, a Father, a Lover of my soul... that I can hind in at any moment.  Let me share the lyrics... it is worth a read!

O safe to the Rock that is higher than I,
My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly;
So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine, would I be;
Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.


Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,
Thou blest “Rock of Ages,”
I’m hiding in Thee.

In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow’s lone hour,
In times when temptation casts o’er me its power;
In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,
Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.


How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,
I have fled to my refuge and breathed out my woe;
How often, when trials like sea billows roll,
Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul.


Oh thank You, my ROCK OF AGES... that I may hide in You.  That when I am in conflict, pressed by the enemy... I can run to you and "breathe out my woe".  I'm so thankful... that You love and adore my praise.  But I am blessed... that You love me so much... You are willing to listen to my moaning.  

Praise You, Thank You, I Adore You...
