Comfort Overflows

For just as the sufferings of Christ
flow over into our lives, so also through
Christ our comfort overflows.
 
2 Corinthians 1:5
 
 
Suffering does have a purpose
Though it hurts beyond words
He endured the pain
All the rejection and shame
Physical – Emotional
His heart was like wax
that melted away
He then died for me
 
I fall on my knees
His story touches my soul
Takes me to the heart of God
Embraces my pain
Gives me power to love
 
I seek the silence
When I am quiet I hear
The whisper
Of a love larger than me
Surrounding my soul with joy
 
Do you hear the invitation
To come and rest in His peace
To drink the living water
Receive Divine Love

My heart has turned to wax; it has melted away within me ….  But you, O Lord, be not far off; O my Strength, come quickly to help me.  Psalm 22:13-14,19

my body

My soul thirsts for You,
My body longs for You… 
Psalm 63:1
 
 
O God, you are my God,
       earnestly I seek you;
       my soul thirsts for you,
       my body longs for you,
       in a dry and weary land
       where there is no water.
 
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and glory.
 
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
 
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
 
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
 
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the night.
 
Because you are my helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
 
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
 
Psalm 63:1-8
 
 
A favorite from the book of Psalms.
A combination of the NIV and the NLT translations.
