 Carol's Journey

(Based on Psalms 120-134, as noted after each)

I cried out to You Lord in my despair
Knowing You would answer my prayer (Ps. 120)
My help comes from You, my Maker
My Protector, both now and forever (Ps. 121)

You call me to worship in Your house, Lord
There I can seek to know You are good (Ps. 122)
My eyes are on You, enthroned in heaven above
Show me Your favor, no one is worthy enough (Ps. 123)

Lord, if You had not been right by my side
The devil would have devoured me alive (Ps. 124)
You daily surround me with Your protection
Banish evildoers with Your rod of correction (Ps. 125)

Let my mouth be filled with laughter and praise
For You have done great things all of my days (Ps. 126)
All labor done in Your name is never in vain
Staying up late is useless with nothing to gain (Ps. 127)

Teach me to fear You more and walk in Your ways
Blessing and fruitfulness will come in my days (Ps. 128)
Facing physical challenges from the time of my youth
Harm has not come upon me, for You protected me too (Ps. 129)

If You kept a record of all sin, who could stand?
With You there is forgiveness, let all understand
So I wait for You, putting my hope in Your word
In You, there is faithful love and redemption, Lord (Ps. 130)

Keep me from pride, always focused on You instead
Not to get involved with things that are over my head
To be calm and quiet, as a baby and mother so tender
Putting my hope in You, Lord, both now and forever (Ps. 131)

As David came before You as Your servant
Seeking a home for the Ark of the covenant
You answered far beyond his humble petition
So I will claim Eph. 3:20 by Your revelation (Ps. 132)

How good it is for believers to live in harmony
Joined as one by Your Spirit, let there be unity (Ps. 133)
As I praise You, You bless me through Your Word
You enable me to bless others in sharing what I learn (Ps. 134)

As I continue day by day on this pilgrim journey
You are preparing me for my home in eternity
Conform me each step to be more like Your Son
For in You, the victory has already been won

Shared at my church on 8/29 as part of Talent and
Testimony night
