He is my song in the night

He is my song in the night

“By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.” ~ Psalm 42:8, NIV

Lord, I hear a bird singing outside my window and I am reminded of the song you have placed in my heart — a song of praise, a song of joy even though difficult situations are all around me. That’s a miracle Lord, and I praise You for it.

Your joy completes me.

Your joy releases the flow of Living Water that brings renewed hope to the broken places and life to places that once were dead.

Thank You Lord.

Thank You for Your song.

I ask that You touch others who are struggling with life’s hardships — touch them by the power of Your Holy Spirit and release their lips to praise You. Overcome the snare of the fowler that grips their spirit, keeping it in a dark place.

You are light, not darkness.

You are peace, not despair.

You are joy, not depression.

You Lord, are our song in the night — ever-faithful, ever-true, ever-good.

Thank You for the touch of Your miracle-working power in our lives that makes all things new. Your love astounds me. Your grace — Your amazing grace — is like the morning dew watering my parched spirit.

Bless You Lord.

You alone are worthy of praise.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,



Please don’t carry your burdens alone. I would be honored to pray with you.

Have you had a chance to read Faith Notes ~ Norma Gail: Where Is God When Lightning Hits Its Mark?

It’s a delight to introduce you to my dear friend and fellow Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas author, Norma Gail. We first met several years ago while promoting our works on Twitter. You might say hashtags brought us together! And I’m so glad they did. We have been close friends and prayer warriors for each other ever since.

Her father once joked about wanting to die, fly rod in hand, in the middle of his favorite river … and that’s exactly what happened. Yes! Lightning took his life at age 65 while doing what he loved.

I know Norma’s testimony of God’s faithfulness and longsuffering during this tragic time will touch you deeply and give you strength for the journey.
