Last Sunday, Pastor Crowe encouraged us to read Psalm 18 and then write one of our own. Here is mine that I have composed to tell of His goodness to me. This is my way of giving praise to my Lord and my God who sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for my sins.
My Psalm of Praise!
A Psalm about the Greatness of the Lord unto Me!
Lord, Your ways are above all others and You desire a heart that is devoted to You.
I praise Your Holy Name for You are slow to anger and filled with compassion to those who love You and are called by Your Name.
Lord, You have sustained me in my darkest hour and restored to me more than what was taken from me.
Your Word restores, guides, and brings hope to the weary and forsaken.
You alone have the power to reconcile broken relationships when all hope was lost.
You equipped me to serve in ways that I would never have imagined before.
Your faithfulness and mercy are beyond description.
Your steadfast love is my mighty fortress and tower of refuge to run to in time of need.
Great is Your compassion and faultless is Your love.
Your patience knows no limit, yet, You will not tolerate sin nor the proud forever.
You will exalt the humble and bring down the haughty for You are sovereign.
You are righteous and just against sin, yet You will not reject a broken and contrite heart.
There is nothing that can be hidden from You.
My finite mind cannot begin to comprehend Your infinite grace and mercy. I need only believe and trust in You. Amen!
Therefore, I want to challenge you to write your own psalm of praise. It is a wonderful way to chronicle all the great things He has done in your life.

This is such a fantastic idea! I loved your powerful psalm and I think I might even do this with my teen ministry. Thank you for this!

Pretty! This was an incredibly wonderful post. Thank you for supplying these details.
