A Couple of Psalms Just For Me....

Just wanted to share a couple of Psalms with you tonight. I'm still having a hard time but it is somewhat better. Tonight I just broke down on my mom and told her the cold, hard truth that I really feel and some of it is even stuff I can't type on here. There are just some things you can barely say aloud let alone type for everyone to read. But, I did feel better after I admitted some of the things that I had been feeling and after I stopped feeling guilty about them.

I still Pray that my chance at being a mother will come soon and that I will be blessed to have a child of my own. Please join me in Pray about this situation. For those of you who left a comment or texted/called during my time in this valley, may God bless you for your thoughtfulness. You never know just how much it means to someone for just a kind word, a card, a quick note, etc. I think some of my infertility issues are enhanced by the loss of my best friend Danielle who was such a source of encouragement to me. So thank you for reminding me that others do still care.

Psalm 5-6 (King James Version)

Psalm 5

1Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

2Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

3My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.


Psalm 6

1O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

3My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

4Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.

5For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.

9The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

10Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
