New Living Translation (NLT)
9 The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
Do You Ever
Do you ever feel real slow?
Do you think you’re kind of lame?
Do you ever feel quite useless?
Does it make you feel ashamed?
Do you ever try to run and hide?
Does it make you feel so weak?
Do you ever go ‘round wondering?
Does it make you feel like you’re a creep ?
Do you ever wish that you were dead?
Does it sound like the ultimate solution?
Do you ever find yourself alone?
Does it make you plot your execution?
Do you ever stop and pause?
Does it give you time to think?
Do you ever count your blessings?
Does it pull you back from the brink?

When we walk through valleys and dark shadows begin to speak to us, please take our hand. Walk with us and keep us from negative thoughts. We have much to be thankful for. May we number every one of them before we act upon our sorrows.
