You are my help, Lord, I will praise You. Break forth like the dawn

“God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.” ~ Psalm 46:5, NKJV

“My heart, O God, is steadfast;
    I will sing and make music with all my soul.
Awake, harp and lyre!
    I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing of You among the peoples.
For great is Your love, higher than the heavens;
    Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    let your glory be over all the earth.” ~ Psalm 108:1-5, NIV

“Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.” ~ Isaiah 58:8, NKJV

“Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” ~ Matthew 11:28, NLT

I Need You to Break Forth Like the Dawn, Lord

Father, I will sing of Your mercies forever, with my mouth will I make Your faithfulness known, for You are my help, Lord. I will release my praise, especially in the difficult place, until You break forth like the dawn in me.

I’m tired, Lord. Weary. The battles have been fierce and I’ve needed/wanted to shelter in place beneath Your wing. It’s easy there. I can rest there.

But You call me to shine my light in the darkness, to overflow with Your love.

Break forth the dawn in me, Lord.

Break forth like the dawn in me. You are the bright Morning Star that burns brilliantly in the darkness just before dawn. Permeate my darkness, Lord … permeate my darkness and renew my strength.

You are my help, Lord, the Keeper of my soul. Return to me the joy of my salvation and I will reflect Your light once more.

When I praise You, You draw near and lift my burdens. In my weakness, You make me strong. In my despair, You bring me hope.

When I sing of Your mercies, I am reminded of Your faithfulness to me. I will offer You a sacrifice of praise in the difficult place, and Your flame within me will ignite, and I begin to see clearly again. Your light is beautiful to me. Comforting. Healing.

Forever You Are Mine

You are my help, Lord, my song in the night. I trust You to break forth like the dawn in the darkness. Forever You are mine.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
