I am by no means a song writer. I have friends that are song writers and I am not one of them. But I mess around and every once in awhile am able to express my heart in a such a way that a tune comes to my head. Or more often I play a tune and words pop into my head, usually overflowing from my heart.
Well these are hard days and here is a little ditty that I wrote tonight called “circumstance” (preface… give me a break, it’s almost 4 in the morning, it’s probably going to suck worse than most of my wanna be song do.)
I stand to praise you Lord
But I can’t help but to see my circumstance
So I fall down on my knees
And I cry out
Help me to see your plan
That’s all I got right now but I think it’s a good start and it sounds pretty cool on my G-tar if I do say so myself.
But it is my Psalm tonight. In Psalm 40 David says, “my troubles surround me, my iniquities have overtaken me, until I cannot see; they are more than the hairs on my head, and my heart fails me. Be pleases oh Lord to deliver me…” My paraphrase of those verses would be, “I can’t see past my circumstances Lord, deliver me and help me to see your plan.”
So that’s my song tonight, that my cry, my Psalm!
