Reckoning and Trust

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?

The Lord is my fortress,
protecting me from danger,

so why should I tremble?
The one thing I ask of the Lord—
the thing I seek most—

is to live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
delighting in the Lord’s perfections
and meditating in his Temple.
My heart has heard you say,
“Come and talk with me.”
And my heart responds,
“Lord, I am coming.”
Psalm 27
These are days of great testing, 
in my life personally and in 
the life of this nation.
To many, the election yesterday
signaled a further departure from the 
freedoms that our nation was founded on.
We are in days of reckoning.
And while we can never stop interceding
for our leaders and this great nation, 
neither can we be moved from trust
in the One who hears those prayers. 
Once again, I turn to His Word and stand.
Come to Me, all you who are burdened, 
and I will give you rest.
Lord, I come to You.
I am burdened for many things.
Your rest is my hope.
Your presence is my safe place.

May I never be moved in a greater way 
by what is around me than Who is inside me.
My hope is You, God.
That was true four years ago
and remains true today.
You stand eternally as the King of Kings;
You are Lord over all.
It is my privilege to live in this land
where we may worship You with our lives.
Lord, have mercy.
Have mercy on this land of liberty.
It is of Thee that I sing.
