Psalm of a New Believer

Updated on July 21, 2009

...a soul is saved...

...a new life begins...
...a new life begins...

Psalm of a New Believer

My Lord, my God, my Creator

You are the Savior of my soul.

From the depths of the darkness

My heart cried out to you.

You felt my anguish, my pain, my loneliness.

Swiftly, but gently, you lifted me up.

I was cowering just outside the gates of Hell.

 

  As a tiny infant, you nurture me.

Your Word is my sustenance.

I dwell in the arms of safety and encouragement

Within the boundaries of a warm, loving family.

Truly, my cup runneth over.

 

As I learn to walk, you hold me by both hands.

Each step I take, looking up, reassured

Knowing You are my God

Knowing You are there.

When I trip, You are forgiving,

Helping me up and beckoning me to go on.

 

My soul strives to please You

Desiring only to do Your will

Grieving not the Holy Spirit

But receiving comfort and guidance in prayer.

It is You my Lord that I love and cherish.

Singing praises to You and Glorifying Your Holy Name.

Walk with me until it's time to come home.

You are my AWESOME God!

      The beautiful truth is David sat in fields as shown in your picture, and in the loneliness and in the silence of the fields, God looked out to him and heard his songs and prayers. In the chaos of the noise, he hears our voice!

      Thanks for this wonderful hub.

      Lady_E thank you for your most gracious comments. I will check out the religious postings as you have suggested. I have no idea what they are! Thank you for your prayer! Two or three days after I discovered hubpages, I fractured my right leg as well as rupturing a ligament and dislocating my ankle/leg. I know I'm in the center of His will and I think hubpages is a big part of it. So Praise The Lord! I'm currently working on my next hub which is my testimony. If you read it you'll know where my heart was when I wrote the psalm. Thank you for your encouragement and making my day!

      What a beautiful Heartfelt Psalm. Born Again, if ever you have time, p/s check out the Religious postings in Forums. I'm sure any response from you would help clarify a lot.

      I pray for increased wisdom and fresh anointing on you as you write your hubs. May you be a channel of blessing unto many. Regards, Elena.

      Thank you frogyfish for stopping by. You are my very first visitor! I wrote this a year or two after I was saved. I thought it might be a good way to start. I just tried to write it from the heart.

      Welcome coffeesnob! Thank you for signing on! I pray that all my hubs may be inspired by Him and glorify Him. I love the Lord with all my heart and soul.
