God is the strength of my heart!
God is the strength of my heart!

“Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” ~ Psalm 73:25-26

O Lord, You are my God, my light and my salvation. I have placed my hope in You and You have never failed me. This I know.

I Am Often Weary and Overwhelmed

Even still, my heart is failing me. I am weary and often overwhelmed because I look past Your loving gaze and see only my circumstances. I rush ahead of You into the darkened path rather than staying within the light of Your Word and the strength of Your presence.

Some days I am guilty of pushing You aside and rushing ahead in my own strength. And that is when I become overwhelmed or fearful or worn to a frazzle.

Forgive me, Lord. I know better. Make me aware of those moments when I choose to run ahead without You. Correct my steps.

Marching with my hand gripped in Yours, my heart is strengthened.
Marching with my hand gripped in Yours, my heart is strengthened.

You are strength to the needy in our distress.

You are a Refuge in our storm, a shade from the heat that burns and leaves us parched.

Quench our thirst for You, Lord. Draw us near that we might declare “O my soul, march on!”

March on in Your strength.

March on in the power of Your might.

March on in the beauty of Your holiness and the miracle of Your grace.

March on …

And in the marching with my hand gripped in Yours, my heart is strengthened. Only in You. With You. Beside You.

You are the Strength of My Heart

Thank You for Your strength, Lord — You are the strength of my heart. Your love sustains me.
