Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord More than those who watch for the morning— Yes, more than those who watch for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord; For with the Lord there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption.
Psalms 130:1-7 NKJV
As I wait on You, Lord, give me Your joy, for I know that the joy of the Lord strengthens me. Open my eyes to see the wonders of Your creation as I walk beside You through this day. Thank You for Your Presence with us, guiding, providing, protecting, and loving us enough to come live amongst sinners as a baby, born incarnate, and die to pay our debt with Your Blood. On the Third day, You rose again; death has no power over You. We are redeemed because of what You did for the world, and You still live among us; our hope is in You, the living God. Thank You, Jesus, amen
