*** This is the first of the Psalms in a series, which were written by the Fellows, on our Winter Retreat. This, and the others in the series are published on the blog anonymously.
God I trust you to be near to me.
I wait for You in the silent shadows of the night.
I know your song by heart, and I keep it on my lips at all times.
I proclaim your goodness in every circumstance and breathe hope, when I am surrounded by toxic fumes.
My eyes are fixed on your bright promises in front of me.
I have resolved to claim them for your servant.
Guard me from shame, do not let it overtake me while I am following your good path.
I love you Lord. Remember me when I am stumbling.
Weary and harboring great joy, my feet draw me nearer, to you, my God.
