PSALM 124 --

[A song was written based on this Psalm.  The words aren't exactly the same as what is in the Bible, but the theme fits in precisely.  And I have sung this song MANY times over
 the past 6 years when life is tough.

Today, life is tough.]

==================

If it had not been the Lord that was on our 

side,



When the wind rose against us, when the tide was high.



When the battle was lost, and we drowned in the dark,


We would be in despair, if it had not been the Lord!


==========================

I think sometimes how hopeless and lost I would be in this dark, fallen, sad world without the Lord. I can't imagine trying to make it through without Him! Hope you're doing well, have a blessed day!

Thanks, Amanda. It was just based on the horrific situation in Connecticut and a local murder last weekend that touched my heart. So hard to stay focused on only the One Who can heal... body, soul, and spirit.

This is one of my favorites! Glory be to God. I'm glad that HE is on our side!

I do know that I would have lost heart had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Psalm 27:13 Comfort for me in the past and comfort for today.

With recent news like we've had lately, I too would have been in despair in not for the Lord.

Yes. Tough days. Walking us right up to the edge of despair.

Between the tragedies in Oregon and then the other tragedy, it feels very sad. God is our hope and we know HE is with us, but oh is it hard to hold on sometimes.
