For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
1 Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
4 Tremble and do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
and trust in the Lord.
6 Many, Lord, are asking, "Who will bring us prosperity?"
Let the light of your face shine on us.
7 Fill my heart with joy
when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety.
David has written a lovely prayer to God! I like David, he is full of passion for God, absolute passion! Particularly, verse 4 stood out to me. Lately I have been able to rest, because Tafe is over. The past week or two, I have been able to sleep in... and when I wake up, I'm not in a rush to go anywhere, I can just lie down and search my heart and be silent. It is a lovely feeling that I can just sit and think without any worry... although it has made me rather tired doing nothing. hmmmm.
