Sometimes in this broken world life is hard. Sometimes I cannot find the faith to call out from the depths. More often that not, that is when I am blessed by anthems I thought I had forgotten. And when the truths of Scripture are set to the right music, it is hard to reject their comfort.
Sometimes in this broken world He makes me trust Him, even when I do not want to.
I praise the Lord that my faith does not come from me.
“Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.
If you, Lord, were to note what is done amiss,
O Lord, who could stand?
For there is forgiveness with you;
therefore you shall be feared.
I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him;
in his word is my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord,
more than watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, wait for the Lord,
wait for the Lord.
For with the Lord there is mercy,
with him there is plenteous redemption,
And he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.”
(Paraphrase of Psalm 130)
Truly, He restores my soul.
