A Psalm from Ryder

Hi....this is Ryder. Last night I had a hard time falling asleep so I decided to write a psalm. So my mom thought you all would enjoy reading it. Here it is...

"In whom shall I put my Trust when Fear stalks me like a predator ready to strike and Anger lurks in the shadows, preparing to burst forth? In whom shall I put my Trust when Faith in things of the human world has failed and Happiness is but a memory? Whom shall call to me and rescue me from the Shadow Lands? Whom shall awaken me? The LORD."

"Whom shall cheer me when sorrow creeps in like fog and envelops me? Whom shall reassure me when uncertainty clouds my mind? The LORD."

"Whom shall pick me up when I have fallen? Who is my rock on which I stand? The LORD"

Wow, Ryder. I love your psalms. Your words to God touched my heart deeply (as in made me cry b/c my heart feels the same about God). Thanks for being willing to share your heart. That's a gift! I'm so impressed that you are using your gifts to praise God. He has definitely blessed you with a gift for words. I really mean that. Keep on using your gifts!! It's a blessing to others.

Thanks for sharing, Ryder, and please keep writing! Write about anything and everything, sometimes just for yourself, and sometimes to share with others. It will be a blessing to the Lord, just like this was!

Ryder, God is already doing great things in you and through you. Keep allowing him to work, and I can't even begin to imagine how he'll use you in the future. Thank you for sharing!!! You have a heart just like David's.
