Protected

Protected

Happy are those who trust in Him for their protection
Psalm 2:12b

Why do I continally forget you Jesus?
Why do I seek what I cannot find in anyone other than you?
I veer off course so easily
My rebellious nature surfaces again and again

Why do I follow the crowd away from you Jesus?
Swayed by fools gold and empty pleasures
Too quick to build on shifting sands
Wisdom tossed away for temporary folly

All I need to do is trust in you
Daily, prayerfully, seek your counsel
I have evidence that you are guiding me
Proof that you are always with me 

Jesus, you are my rock and my shepherd
Pursuing me even after I wandered away 
When I put my faith in you I know
I am safe. I am protected!

Refreshed

Refreshed

Jesus, only through your guidance along right paths
Do I not walk in step with the wicked or stand with the sinners
Jesus, only because you make me lie down in green pastures
Do I grow like a tree planted by streams of still waters
Jesus, only because you are with me always
Do I prosper even when I’m walking through the darkest valley
Jesus, only with you watching over me with rod and staff
Do I not fear evil and not go the way of destruction
Jesus, only through your goodness and love following me
Do I yield fruit in every season and not wither
Jesus, you are my shepherd and comfort
With you, I do not want and am refreshed

Psalm 1 and Psalm 23
