March 2, 2017: Day 61 – Psalm 61

This is the song that comes to my mind when I read this psalm.  When I get to verse 2 where it states “lead me to the rock”, for some reason I substitute it with “lead me to the cross”.  

I guess vs. 2 also makes me think of this song.  It states very specifically that God is our strong tower.  Boy, strong towers were so important in David’s day.  They provided safety, refuge, a fortress which could even be impregnable.  That is what we want our God to be.

Isn’t it something how we are able to relate to music in a way that probably we can’t relate to in words.  Everyone of us learns God’s truths in different ways.  Some of us can only experience the lessons and the words will fall on our deaf ears.  But music does something that at times words cannot express.

On Tuesday we were at Presbytery and the person who preached, Doug Good, shared this song with us.  It is one that we sing in worship often.

Today is a song day.  We are asking God to lead us to the cross, for Him to be our strong tower, which He is, and that He would sustain us even when we feel as if the waters have risen over our heads.  Enjoy today!

    A beautiful image!
    I have enjoyed the past 60 days, always a day behind so that I can read it in the morning. “Song Day” has been a blessing.

    “We are asking God to lead us to the cross, for Him to be our strong tower, which He is, and that He would sustain us even when we feel as if the waters have risen over our heads.” Thank you so much for these words. So often we need to be reminded of this as life just “takes over” and we get lost in the shuffle. It is so important that we remember that God is ALWAYS there for us to lean on and take refuge in. That he will be our safe place, our protector and our guide through whatever is happening in our lives.
