When you are a young mom (I don't feel so young anymore... I mean, when you are a mom with lots of young kids), sometimes 10 minutes is all you have, but what you can read in 10 minutes can be so soothing to the soul, and great for meditating. So today, I am going to share 10 Psalms passages that feed my soul!
Psalm 143: 8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standing in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not whither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Psalm 18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me because he delighteth in me.
Psalm 130: 4, 7 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. ...for with the Lord there is mercy and with him is plenteous redemption.
Psalm 107: 1, 8-9 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Psalm 27:13-14 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living: Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
Psalm 30:11-12 Thou has turned my mourning into dancing: thou has put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness; to the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent, O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
Psalm 40:1-3 I waited patiently for the Lord: and he inclined unto me, and he heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
Psalm 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, o my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psalm 61:1-2 Hear my cry , O God; attend unto my prayer. from the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Hope these encourage you as well... it took me all day just to get these typed!
