Personal Psalms

A couple weeks ago, as part of our Drinking Deep series, we looked at the spiritual discipline of worship. Our take home sheet encouraged us to write our own personal psalm to God, possibly using the framework of Psalm 136 as a framework. We thought we'd share several of the personal psalms you sent in.

A Personal Psalm

God, giver of all gifts, blessings, and joy
Allowed this one to receive these untold
Knowing that I would ignore them or mar them to idols
In order for his way of salvation to unfold

Feeling a void that only He could fill
I sought Him out (to drag him to my hole)
But my light was smashed, snuffed in a flash
Left to a darkness that mirrored my soul

God opposes the proud, hard-hearted and haughty
Opens the eyes of the blind so they see
It is not I who can force God to fellowship
But God who extends His love to me

A Personal Psalm

To Him alone who can calm anxiety
His love endures forever
To Him alone who can heal
His love endures forever
To Him alone who gives life
His love endures forever
To Him alone who perfects
His love endures forever

To Him who takes down the mighty
His love endures forever
Who opposes the proud
His love endures forever
And gives grace to the humble
His love endures forever
To Him who is compassionate and merciful
His love endures forever

He frees me from loneliness
His love endures forever
He frees me from the darkness
His love endures forever
He sits with me in silence
His love endures forever
He tells me I am LOVED
His love endures forever

A Personal Psalm

Long before I was made, You designed my being
You planned all my days 'fore the first one was seen
Placed me in family to show me their love
Both the good and bad, would never be enough

And into my heart You built a dome
The center of my being, Your Spirit's new home
At the same time, You're working away
On eternal dwellings for my home someday

You inside me and me inside You
Mystery too great, it just can't be true
Though I know just in part, by faith I believe
As Jesus is one with You, so You'll make me
