Read this slowly to get the full effect, ok? Slowly!
But me he caught - reached all the way from sky to sea;
He pulled me out of that ocean of hate,
that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning...
He stood me up on a wide-open field;
I stood there saved - surprised to be loved!
God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him...
Now I'm alert to God's ways; I don't take God for granted.
Every day I review the ways he works; I try not to miss a trick.
I feel put back together, and I'm watching my step.
God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes...
What a God!
His road stretches straight and smooth.
Every God-direction is road-tested.
Everyone who runs toward him
Taken from The Message, Psalms 18
These are some of my favorite verses. Ever. Especially the first section. So poetic. If I could plaster it all over my walls, I would.
This is radiance from ruins.
