Psalm 9 Lift my Spirits That I May Be of Use

I give thanks with my whole heart
for every rock of the earth, every star in the sky,
for the thickening of life in very winter branch.
And also—for your presence in my heart—
which makes me strong.

You are a refuge for the oppressed and troubled
Those who put their trust in you are comforted.
Whisper in my heart, O God,
For I am tormented by difficulties
And discouraged by the awful state of the world.
Lift my spirits so that I may be of use—
And trap the wicked with the works of their own hands.
Help me to set things right
so that the needy are not forgotten
and the poor have hope.
For we are all mortal
and our life should be a blessing to us all.

Andrea, you're so disgusting my dear. Your comment was and is completely out-of-place.

Christine, thanx a lot. Your work it's beautiful and spirit-blessing.
