This piece (another in the series The Psalms) is one of my earlier scenes, and I have been reluctant to post it. I love this Psalm so very much. And I just wasn't able to capture the intensity of the Psalm. I am not doing it justice.
But tonight I decided to post it anyhow. God is looking down on this woman, resting in peace because of Him. Even though my attempts at capturing the beauty of this Psalm are feeble, I am praying that God will speak through it to one of you. May you sleep in peace, tonight and every night, knowing that God is with you.
Psalm 4 (EXB)
Answer me when I pray to you,
my God who does what is right.
·Make things easier for me when I am in trouble.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
People, how long will you turn my ·honor into shame?
How long will you love what is ·false and ·look for lies?
You know that the Lord has chosen for himself those who are loyal to him.
The Lord listens when I pray to him.
When you are angry, do not sin.
Think about these things quietly
as you go to bed.
Do what is right as a sacrifice to the Lord
and trust the Lord.
Many people ask,
“Who will give us anything good?”
Lord, ·be kind to us.
But you have ·made me very happy,
happier than they are,
even with all their grain and new wine.
I ·go to bed and sleep in peace,
because, Lord, only you keep me safe [make me secure.
