Passage: Psalm 57
Verse: Psalm 57:1, 5, 7-8 (NIV 2011)
- Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge.
- I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
- Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
- My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
- Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
We have a God we can turn to whenever we are overcome with fear, darkness, or hopelessness. May we always be grateful for His faithfulness. Because of Him, we are able to stand. May we forever sing praises to Him. May our hearts and souls soar toward the heavens as we rejoice in His creation and in the many blessings He bestows upon us each and every day. May we ring in a new day in service to the Lord. May we find a way to share our hope in the Lord with someone who needs a special touch from Him today.
