Modern Day Psalm

Speak louder Lord, I am having trouble
hearing Your voice. Don't relent, be the 
loudest. I need You.

Talk sweetly to me, I count on your gentle
touch and tenderness.

Hold my hand and don't let go,
Your presence is sweeter than honey.

Re-shape my heart Lord, it's deformed
from the world. And I hunger for newness.

Fill in my blank spaces, I long
to be made whole.

Set things right, I depend on
Your wisdom and Truth.

Step into the darkness, 
Your light shines bright and gives life.

I want Your peace when life
around me is in chaos.

Your love and grace, 
surround me with them morning, noon and night.

And in the midst of pain, Your mercy.

I find my heart sinking with gratitude after sitting 
with You, and it straightens my path and betters
my vision.

Thank You for Your unending goodness
 and faithfulness.
You are more reliable than
the morning. And in
You I trust.
