April 16, 2012 journal, read the marvelous Psalm 25 which is surely just made for me. What a beautiful scripture that will energize your soul and draw you close to God the creator. What a wonderful place to be in the presence of the great creator God with heavenly thoughts of spending eternity with him. Have patience my Christian friend. * The subject of my next painting * They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings. Psalm 25 King James Version (KJV) "Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.2-O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. 5-Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. 6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy loving kindnesses; for they have been ever of old. 7-Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD. 8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. 9-The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. 10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 11For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. 12-What man is he that feareth the LORD? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. 13His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14-The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will show them his covenant. 15-Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. 16-Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. 17-The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. 18-Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. 19Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. 20-O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. 21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles." Isaiah 40:31"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint."
