So yes…….the psalm for today will be psalm 44 from the desecendants of Korah still………they is still having their turn in good ol book II of psalms here so here goes and please post comments folks they do indeed help.
 
1
    O God, we have heard it with our own ears–
       our ancestors have told us
    of all you did in other days,
       in days long ago:

    2
    You drove out the pagan nations
       and gave all the land to our ancestors;
    you crushed their enemies,
       setting our ancestors free.

Talking about awesome things which our God did in the past for His ppl eh?? Guess wat…..He continues to do so.

    3
    They did not conquer the land with their swords;
       it was not their own strength that gave them victory.
    It was by your mighty power that they succeeded;
       it was because you favored them and smiled on them.

Everything we accomplish is by Him not by our own strength or power, remember that. The gifts you hav were given to you by Him so that you could glorify Him, so if you can play sports, play them for Him, if you can sing, Sing to Him, if you dance, dance to Him with all you’ve got, the list goes on and on……

    4
    You are my King and my God.
       You command victories for your people.[a]

    5
    Only by your power can we push back our enemies;
       only in your name can we trample our foes.

    6
    I do not trust my bow;
       I do not count on my sword to save me.

    7
    It is you who gives us victory over our enemies;
       it is you who humbles those who hate us.

See when we trust on Him He takes care of the troubles in our life, He may not necessarily take them away but He does use them for good in us.

    8
    O God, we give glory to you all day long
       and constantly praise your name.

Interlude

 9
    But now you have tossed us aside in dishonor.
       You no longer lead our armies to battle.

    10
    You make us retreat from our enemies
       and allow them to plunder our land.

    11
    You have treated us like sheep waiting to be slaughtered;
       you have scattered us among the nations.

    12
    You sold us–your precious people–for a pittance.
       You valued us at nothing at all.

    13
    You have caused all our neighbors to mock us.
       We are an object of scorn and derision to the nations around us.

    14
    You have made us the butt of their jokes;
       we are scorned by the whole world.

Hehe bet ya didnt ever expect to hear that sentence in the bible now did ya…..lol i know i didnt.

    15
    We can’t escape the constant humiliation;
       shame is written across our faces.

    16
    All we hear are the taunts of our mockers.
       All we see are our vengeful enemies.

    17
    All this has happened despite our loyalty to you.
       We have not violated your covenant.

    18
    Our hearts have not deserted you.
       We have not strayed from your path.

    19
    Yet you have crushed us in the desert.
       You have covered us with darkness and death.

    20
    If we had turned away from worshiping our God
       or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods,

    21
    God would surely have known it,
       for he knows the secrets of every heart.

Quite a scary thought really, theres stuff in my heart which i wish noone would ever know, including God and im sure thats the same for everyone. But guess wat…..He does know and He still loves you regardless of wats in there.

    22
    For your sake we are killed every day;
       we are being slaughtered like sheep.

    23
    Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep?
       Get up! Do not reject us forever.

    24
    Why do you look the other way?
       Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression?

    25
    We collapse in the dust,
       lying face down in the dirt.

    26
    Rise up! Come and help us!
       Save us because of your unfailing love.

I have to admit i can relate to this whenever it feels like nothing is goin rite…..tis like where are you God and why have you abandoned us?? But u know wat…..He’s there and He hasnt gone anywhere…..he’s with you and always will be, He will guide you and pick you up when u fall. Just because He doesnt feel close to you doesnt mean He isnt rite beside you. Dont lose faith because of emotions or circumstances instead……hold on to wat u know is true and persist in pursuing Christ with all you’ve got.

Later my lil friends,

    Goodness, pink, and hot pink at that? no idea why you\’d use that color… (and there you go about butts again…)Sorta funny how that is, how we\’ll know something so well in our heads, yet at the same time dispair of it. Like knowing that God\’s always there, but just feeling… so, alone. the last thought patern there, from 22 for 26, really shows what happens when the Lord (well, more of how we feel) looks away. And if He really did look away, we wouldn\’t even exist. We\’re sustained by His thoughts and nothing was made that has been made without Him. And the feeling like God has forgotten us, I\’d say is the worst in the world, its like all hope is gone, and someone just smashed your heart to bits. But amen that we are in Christ and He will never leave us or forsake us! That instead of rejecting us forever He promises to be WITH us forever, even to the end of time. That\’s something to believe and hold to. inHimDrew

    I like verse 8 about praising God all day long. I\’ve started noticing this week how stressed and worried I can get; good reminder just to give it to God and praise Him instead.
