All I Need


I praise Your name for 
Your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for Your promises are backed
by all the honor of Your name.
As soon as I pray, You answer me;
You encourage me by giving me strength.
You reach out your hand,
and the power of Your right hand saves me.
The Lord will work out His plans for my life—
for Your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Psalm 138
I have nothing this morning except
my great promises of the Lord's faithfulness.
I have all I need.
His love and faithfulness never fail.
Even when mine do.
His name holds honor and backs all He says.
When I pray, He hears me and answers.
Not when He thinks I deserve it,
but as soon as I call out to Him.
He encourages me by giving me strength.
His words are my manna
and they strengthen me as I turn
to them for encouragement.
How could I not be strengthened
when I read of His great love for me?
He gives beauty for my ashes.
He gives a garment of praise for my heaviness.
He gives strength for my weakness.
Those places of doubt, He fills with hope.
And when I am confused about what 
is going on all around me, 
He gives me confidence in His ability
and assures me that He will work out 
His plans for my life.
I am at peace this morning.
I have all I need.
