Established by His Favor

May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us--
establish the work of our hands for us,
yes, establish the work of our hands. Ps 90
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love...

My heart so wants to stay connected with His--
the desperate depths of my soul 
have to have the fullness of His spirit
filling up every dry and empty place.
He will lead me beside still waters and restore my soul today.
His goodness and mercy will follow me
and His favor will rest upon me.
Father, I ask that You establish the work of my hands today.
May I not waste time with my own ideas or idle deeds.
My heart cries out that I would be stiller yet, 
that I would hear Your voice and follow Your ways.
I know the places that are dry, that are restless.
All I can do is tell those dry places 
to be still and drink deeply from Your waters of life.
And trust You.
All I know is I find mercy.
Your grace never fails to meet me.
Your favor gives my hands and my heart
their assignments and establishes 
the work that they do.
Your unfailing love 
deeply satisfies my soul.
