Turn Toward The Light - SOS no. 79

Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

[Jim Carrey]

Stand your ground and be
still; know that I am God,
and trust in the Lord with all your heart;
turn not to the left or to the right.
Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare
your praise. For my
eyes have seen your salvation. Your wisdom is
wider than the sea
and your ways are higher than my ways. So I
look to the hills
for my help comes from the LORD. For
the words of the Lord endure forever. Your word is a
light to my path; a lamp to my feet. I will praise your
Name, the name which is above every name, and I will give
it the honor due. How excellent is your
Name in all the earth! For 
the earth is the Lord's and all it's fullness. You are the
light of the world. Let us walk
in the light of the Lord. God, you are good and 
your mercy endures forever. Even when the enemy lurks around every
corner, I trust that you will take hold
of my heart and mind. You hold
the whole world - my whole
world - in the palm of your hand, and I hope in you.
Now hope does not disappoint. Lord, I pray you will
turn your face 
toward me and give me peace. For
it is your Word and your Light, O God, that makes my life beautiful.
