God's Promises

Psalm 116, verses 1 and 2
I love the Lord because he hears my voice
And my prayer for mercy
Because he bends down to listen
I will pray as long as I have breath!

Reading the NLT version in plain english
Helps me to understand sometimes
More of the Father's heart  for me

When I pray and talk to Him
He doesn't just hear me from heaven
But stoops down to listen to a gentle plea of His daughter
As I whisper into His ear
Deep down I'm so sure that He is near

It's like when fear and doubt of the unknown
Takes a hold of you something you can't control
Like when you leave your family for college
Or when a pastor says He'll be flying more often

You breathe out a shaky breath
Thinking what can I do without them here?
But God reaches down from His throne
And makes His plans and promises for us known

And now I know that I'm not holding onto His promises by a thread
But my fingers are starting to gain strength tugging it closer
I want it to eventually stay close in the palm of my hands
Fingers gripped fervently around it
Not even the one who steals, kills and destroys can come in between

Dear God, 
Help me trust and believe in the plans and promises You have revealed to me
To believe that a revelation will form into realization and than an actualization
That when I truly and fully understand my identity and entitlement because of You
I can achieve anything and everything that I set my heart and faith up to
Bring me back to a safe environment where I can dream childlike dreams again
Open my eyes to a world with no limitations
Take me into the Heavens where I can access what I can't on earth
And bless whoever is reading that they may achieve the dreams you have set for them too
That they may enter the fullest capacity of Your chosen and Divine primary destiny for them
For I believe that once we know the glorious splendor and richness of Your dreams for us
We will never ever wanna fall short of Your promises....

Let's hold tight onto God's promises for us
