Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;
O Lord, hear my voice
Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
If you O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits.
and in His word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
Oh, this is my heart’s cry today. There has been just a bit too much of life today. So, I have Jesus Culture blaring, grabbed my Bible and I am soaking up His Word. It is a balm to my soul and a light unto my feet. As I read, I am convinced that I am a sinner, one who desperately needs a Savior.I am never where I want to be. I always fall short. But, He knows I will struggle and I will fall. His grace is ever abundant and His grace is sufficient for all my needs. All we need is to call out to El Roi, the God who hears. Just as He heard the cry of Hagar in the desert, He will hear our cry. As a friend in our House Church said this past week, ‘our faith if little, but His faithfulness is great’. I am grateful He hears my cries, even as insignificant as I am that the God who speaks worlds into creation, that is beyond comprehension, hears my cry. And He hears yours too.
