His Word Melts Ice

He sends forth 
His commandment to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly...
He sends out His word and 
melts ice and snow.
He declares His word to me.
Psalm 147
The promises of God are good.
They speak of abundance, peace, 
pleasures, healing, faithfulness, provision.
Sometimes my feelings tell a different story.
My feelings sometimes lie about God's promises.
They want me to line up with lack.
But His word melts ice and snow;
it melts feelings and everything
that is not in alignment with
His thoughts and His truth.
"Let God be true this day
and every circumstance and feeling
be false and a liar"
that He may be glorified.

I am grateful for His words which have helped
melt wrong thoughts, wrong focus and lies.
May the words of my mouth and the 
thoughts of my heart bless Your name, Lord.
And may all these pages be as psalms--
the expression of a heart wrestling through
all of life to continually discover 
the truth that is found in You.
May Your words continue to melt
any hard and cold places in me.
I want to live out of that
grateful and humble place of worship.
Lead me beside still waters.
Refresh and restore my life.
Lead me in the paths of righteousness
for Your name's sake.
Surely only goodness, mercy and unfailing love
shall follow me all the days of my life,
and Your house will be my dwelling place.
And by Your grace and mercy, 
I will be a dwelling place for You.
