As the Deer

Dear Friends,

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for all your prayers, encouragements and kind comments.

Thank God I am well though rather tired. I am still learning to pace myself as I cope with various challenges daily. Thank God that He is with me and He gives me joy and strength in Him daily.

I missed all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

May the Lord will bless you with a very restful and refreshing weekend and Lord's day.

Hope this song, Like a Deer will encourage your heart.

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, may our souls panteth after our God, our Lord, our Redeemer!

"As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God." Psalm 42:1


As The Deer


As the deer panteth for the water,
So my soul longs after you.
You alone are my hearts desire,
And I long to worship You.

Chorus
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my hearts desire,
and I long to worship You.

I want you more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver
And the apple of my eye.

Chorus
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my hearts desire,
and I long to worship You.

You're my friend and You're my brother,
Even though you are a King.
I love You more than any other
So much more than anything.

Chorus
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my hearts desire,
and I long to worship You.





Thanks again for stopping by.

May the Lord will bless you with a very restful and refreshing weekend and Lord's day.

Take care!

Nancie,

I love this song! So glad you are well. Will pray for you. So good you listen when the Lord says rest. That is definitely something I have to work on. I think I get it from my Mom. Sometimes we as women, think we can do it all. When in fact we just cannot.

Thanks for showing and teaching me to listen closer to the Lord.

Love,
Cheryl

Blessings & May His Love cover you Nancie...You must be very close to hearing God's voice & knowing my heart...I was thinking of this exact song all day long...one of the sweetest image the Lord gives us in Psalm 42 of a precious deer.
How I love this choice and the beautiful video! My heart longs like this...and then I worship Him.
I'm praying as you rest that the weariness & burden is lifted as you are refreshed & restored in Our Lord's perfect rest for you! I'm so thankful that you listened to your body and are doing exactly what you need. Take it easy! I would like to link this to my Super Sunday and normally I would ask you but I do not want you worrying about writing me or bothering with more than just receiving from the Lord & your friends. May God continue His complete work in you as you enjoy resting in the spirit & physically & mentally. Let Our Lord carry you.
