This word of Thine my comfort is....

Today I wanted to share some verses that have been on my mind, and have been a help to me these past few weeks. I shared the metrical version since that is what I have memorized.

_


"The Lord will light my candle so,
that it shall shine full bright:
The Lord my God will also make
my darkness to be light.

 By thee through troops of men I break,
and them discomfit all;
And, by my God assisting me,
I overleap a wall.
As for God, perfect is his way:
the Lord his word is try'd;
He is a buckler to all those
who do in him confide.

Who but the Lord is God? but he
who is a rock and stay?
'Tis God that girdeth me with strength,
and perfect makes my way.
He made my feet swift as the hinds,
set me on my high places.
  Mine hands to war he taught, mine arms
brake bows of steel in pieces.

  The shield of thy salvation
thou didst on me bestow:
Thy right hand held me up, and great
thy kindness made me grow."
 
Psalm 18:28-35

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
