Goodness (Psalm 4)

Here I am, hear my plea, O my God.

I feel abandoned and all alone;

I even wonder why you would listen to me

be merciful to me and hear my prayer.

 

How long, must I live with these indignities?

Is my life full of delusions?

Am I lying to myself?

My Lady has set herself apart and will not embrace me;

She is not answering when I call to Her.

 

I repent, and I am not angry

I want to rest assured in Her love,

I search my heart and am silent

Yes, I am quiet and want to feel Her hug.

 

I practice goodness

and trust in Her.

Many are asking,

“Who can show us any good?”

I answer them

“The face of our God shines upon us.”

 

She has filled my heart with joy

She has provided me

with completeness and fulfillment.

 

I will lie down and sleep in peace,

for you alone, my Lady,

make me safe.

 

Next book featuring praying with Psalms coming in the next couple of weeks
