Lessons Worth Re-Learning

This is my journey that the LORD Jesus Christ has taken me on in my life. So don't be surprised, this is a Christian site written by a Christian. Most of us have lived our Christian lives such that if we bloomed where we were planted, we'd be mushrooms in a cave! If you would like to subscribe to this blog, please send me an e-mail.

I am just like everyone else: I make it one day at a time with a little bit of humor. The Word of God is a fire in my heart that burns all the way down to my bones and I cannot hold it back. Jeremiah 20:9

My Soul Longs for the Courts of the Lord

Psalm 84  (ESV)

1)  How lovely is Your dwelling place, O LORD of Hosts!
2)  My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living GOD.
3)  Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at Your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my GOD.
4)  Blessed are those who dwell in Your house, ever singing Your praise!
5)  Blessed are those whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6)  As they go through the Valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.
7)  They go from strength to strength; each one appears before GOD in Zion.
8)  O LORD GOD of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O GOD of Jacob!
9)  Behold our shield, O GOD; look on the face of Your anointed!
10)  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my GOD than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11)  For the LORD GOD is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
12)  O LORD of Hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in You!
