Contemporary Psalms


Leviathan: sorrow dances before him... his heart is hard as stone... he is made without fear.... he is king over the children of pride...
Job 41: 1,21,24,33,34

But God, You are able to bring joy in the morning! We who belong to Your Lamb are no longer children of pride, but Your children! Adopted through the Acceptable Sacrifice of Christ, Whose blood was poured out for us and covers us. Thank You for raising  us up from hearts of stone to be a people of softened hearts by Your Mercy and Grace indwelling us. Thank You for imparting to us Your Holy Spirit to abide in us and for setting us into our awaiting place in Christ's Body right next to You in the heavenlies.

Your living stones radiate thanks and praise, grateful for another day here on the earth in which to carry Your Love forth and shed Your Light abroad. Words cannot express my gratitude for receiving Your gift of Life, Kingdom Life, Fullness of Life in Christ. Thank You! Thank You, Father Son and Holy Spirit, God Most High -- both now and forever and ever and ever, amen.
