Mourning into Dancing

This morning I read Psalm 116.  I was in the throes of death Friday and Saturday so I could really relate, and after my day yesterday, I could REALLY relate!!

I love the LORD because He hears 
My voice and my 
Because He has inclined
His ear to me,
Therefore I shall call upon
Him as long as I live.
The cords of death
encompassed me
And the terrors of Sheol
came upon me;
I found distress and 
Then I called upon the 
name of the LORD:
“O LORD I beseech You, 
save my life!”
Gracious is the LORD, and
Yes, our God is compassionate.
The LORD preserves the 
I was brought low, and 
He save me.
Return to your rest, 
O my soul,
For the LORD has dealt 
bountifully with you.
For You have rescued my
soul from death, 
My eyes from tears, 
My feet from stumbling.
I shall walk before the LORD
In the land of the living.
I believed when I said,,
“I am greatly afflicted.”
I said in my alarm,
“All men are liars.”
What shall I render to 
the Lord 
For all His benefits 
toward me?
I shall lift up the cup of 
And call upon the name
of the LORD.
I shall pay my vows to 
the LORD,
Oh may it be in the
presence of all His
Precious in the sight of 
the LORD 
Is the death of His godly
O LORD, surely I am
Your servant,
I am Your servant, the 
son of Your handmaid,
You have loosed my
To You I shall offer a 
sacrifice of 
And call upon the name
of the LORD.
I shall pay my vows to 
the LORD, 
Oh may it be in the
presence of all his 
In the courts of the 
LORD’S house,
In the midst of you,
O Jerusalem,
Praise the LORD
