crying tears, years, Psalms 63 & 46

17 May

Psalm 63

A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.

‘You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.’

Tears are my only waters, my tears are streams that channel into my desert heart

‘I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live
and in your name I will lift…’

…I lift my heart’s hands, both left and right, to. With, for your name

On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.

‘up my hands, I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods,
with singing lips, my mouth will praise you’.

From my lips I sing my heart, my heart, to you

and from Psalm 46 is a

…a song. ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.’

Our Lord, my God is within my heart, His city, and my tears stream from my heart, to Him.

tears are my prayers; deserts are watered, hearts soften, patch throats quenched
