Psalm 63...Comfort and Assurance in God's Presence

It has been a long and exhausting week. Thankfully, I will be heading home for Spring break tomorrow. I am strangely looking forward to my 5 1/2 hour drive by myself. I look forward to this time to worship, pray, and cry out to the Lord for love and guidance. I am feeling emotionally drained after this week and my heart is aching for His encompassing embrace.

Psalm 63: 1-8

Oh God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on your name.
My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast, and my mouth praises you with joyful lips
When I think of you on my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

This Psalm causes me to fall on my knees in praise of the Lord, I feel like a small child clinging to my loving father. He who comforts me and soothes my soul.
