Reflection on Psalm 5
Please hear me this morning God,
I really need to talk to you,
And, to know that you are listening to what I need.
I know that you hate certain things:
I know that there are people like this,
Some who say they are my friend,
But, behave like my enemy,
Words can be hurtful,
When they become weapons,
That are used to maim,
To the point that I want to die.
I don’t want their words to control me,
Instead this morning I seek your assuredness,
I want to hear your words to me,
So that I can keep moving in the direction,
That you have planned for me.
Enemies – will come,
I will let you deal with them,
You are not confounded by their deceit,
You see truth,
And, that they are opposing you,
I will give their words and actions to You,
Because, you Lord are in control of everything.
I know that this morning,
As I take my refuge in you,
That I can be content and satisfied,
Knowing that there will always be people,
Who choose to be enemies instead of friends,
You will protect me.
This morning Lord,
I will learn to be content,
To know that I will be eternally singing joyfully,
My appreciation of your faithful love,
What a blessing to be your child,
Surrounded by love,
Happy because your words are kind,
My heart kept safe.
