The book of Psalms is a collection of 150 poems designed to be sung. They express the writer’s feelings on praise and prayer, sorrow over sin, desperate circumstances, thankfulness, devotion, and trust in God.
I have been inspired to write my own modern-day psalm. As you read my psalm to the Lord, consider writing your own psalm applying what you know about God, prayer, and praise. You can put an existing psalm into your own words or write a new, original one.
Then you have the opportunity to share your creation by posting it in the comment section of this blog. For those women who have completed Beth Moore’s Psalms of Ascent, you may already have some passages re-written. Please share and allow what God is teaching your heart to inspire and challenge others.
A Psalm of Redemption
Lord, I cry from the darkest and deepest place of my heart and I know you hear. My legs collapse under me when I consider the weight of my sin. I am not worthy to stand in your presence.
Yet, your forgiveness lifts me. You support me so I can stand.
I wait for tomorrow in anticipation. I watch for you, listen for your voice, eager for your plentiful redemption. You have redeemed me from darkness and brought me into the light. Thank you Lord.
