  6. dusty says:

    Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief.

    But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”

    My times are in your hands.

    ~Psalm 31:9, 14-15

  7. dusty says:

    Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;

    heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.

    My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord, how long?

    Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.

    ~ Psalm 6:2-4

  8. dusty says:

    Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.

    From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint;

    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

    For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.

    I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

    ~ Psalm 61:1-4

  9. Em says:

    Amen, dusty (and David). 🙏

  10. dusty says:

    I’ve built a bridge
    All of my strength cannot cross over
    I stand at the edge
    The end of a road that I have followed
    Sinking from the weight of my own world
    Wanting the waves of Your ways to wash my feet

    Healing waters
    Healing waters
    Solace flows through the river of forgiveness to my soul
    Oh, I need You
    Healing waters

    Pour over me water to clean all my intentions
    Baptizing streams
    I swim in the freedom of redemption
    Floating on the sea of purity
    Knowing I can dive in the love that rescues me

    Repeat chorus

    Memories are raging high
    Floods so deep they touch the sky
    All the things I’ve done to You
    All the parts of a life untrue
    Healing comes from outstretched hands
    Saving me from what I am
    Carry me
    Carry me

    ~ Michelle Tumes – Healing Waters

    O God, our times are in your hand: Look with favor, we

    trust in your goodness all the days of his life; through Jesus
    Christ our Lord. Amen.
