Unfailing Love


Listen to my prayer, Lord!
    
Because of Your faithfulness,
hear my requests for mercy!
I stretch out my hands to You;
    
my whole being thirsts for You.
Tell me all about Your faithful love
come morning time.
I offer my life up to You.
Teach me to do Your will,
for You are my God
and I trust You.

May Your gracious Spirit 
lead me forward on a firm footing.
In Your unfailing love, 
silence all my enemies,
for I am Your servant.
Psalm 143
These are days of needing to rehearse 
the faithfulness of God
in ever increasing ways.
His faithful love keeps me.
His gracious love leads me.
I offer up my life to Him because
I can trust no one else--
especially not myself.
I sit under the banner of His love
and receive all I need.
His love casts out fear
and plants my feet firmly in faith.
He meets me all day long
right where I am.
I am held by love.
Your beauty and love chase after me
    every day of my life.
The house of God 
and His presence
shall be my dwelling place
for the rest of my life.
Psalm 23:6
