Sunday Psalms – The Bottom has Fallen!

Psalms 130
The Message

Riverside by LN by ekhum, on Pix-O-Sphere

1-2 Help, God—the bottom has fallen out of my life!
Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cries for mercy.

3-4 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that’s why you’re worshiped.

5-6 I pray to God—my life a prayer—
and wait for what he’ll say and do.
My life’s on the line before God, my Lord,
waiting and watching till morning,
waiting and watching till morning.

7-8 O Israel, wait and watch for God—
with God’s arrival comes love,
with God’s arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel,
buy back Israel from captivity to sin.

Psalms 130

My Personal Prayer Version

Cliff by Ln by ekhum, on Pix-O-Sphere

You help me, O God,
when the bottom has fallen out of my emotions.
Master, hear my cry for help.
Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cry for mercy.

Whether its pre-men0pause, stinkin’ thinkin’, emotions,
or all of the above, you see the ugliness inside of me.
If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
I would not stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit
and that’s why I worship You.

I pray to You–my life a prayer–and wait for what you’ll say or do.
My life’s on the line before You God, my Lord,
waiting and watching.

With your arrival comes love and generous redemption.
No doubt about it.
You redeem me and
buy me back from the captivity of
myself and sin.
