My heart pounds within me

death's terrors fall upon me.
Hardy Jackson - whose home was destroyed and wife killed by Hurricane Katrina

Fear and trembling overwhelm me;
shuddering sweeps over me.

I say, "If only I had wings like a dove
that I might fly away and find rest.
Far away I would flee;
I would stay in the desert. Selah

"I would soon find a shelter
from the raging wind and storm."

"Cast your burden on the LORD,
and he will sustain you..."

Psalm 55:4-8, 22a

(from today's Daytime Prayer)
