The Word Speaks
Psalt …to taste!
Translitteration but accurate!
Psalm 32
There is a happiness known only to those whose sins are forgiven.
There is a joy known only to those whose faults are accounted for (washed away).
There is a peace known only to those whom the Lord has fully restored. There is a life of freedom known only to those who are fully honest with God.

When I hid from the Lord, my very strength slowly sifted away.
His ever present hand closed in to offer forgiveness or condemnation: my choice.
By trying to turn away I chose condemnation, exhaustion, frustration, Being free from Him, I was enslaved to all else.

I turned back to the Lord whose blood began to wipe away my guilt.
I now confessed with more than words: Repentance!
Then He embraced, restored, renewed.

------------------------------
Inserted:   “Wanting godliness? Turn to God.
                   Seeking Holiness? Seek for the Holy One.
                   Desiring spirituality? Be revived by the Spirit while He’s there!
------------------------------

You, oh LORD, are my only hiding place,
A Tower of protection …even from my self!
You surround me with gentle strength and radiant songs of deliverance.
Teach me. Guide me. Show me
… so I may hunger for You with a renewed mind and spirit instead of being
driven like an animal responding only to base nature and pain.

------------------------------
A painful and pointless life awaits those who opt for God's pointing finger of condemnation instead of His healing hand of favour.
------------------------------

There is happiness and joy and peace and freedom for all
    - who are made righteous by His righteousness,
    - who are made strong by His strength,
    - who live by His Life.
