I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. (Psalm 40:1-3)
When I read these verses again the other day, I was reminded that this is my story, too. After many years of deep depression and seemingly unanswerable questions to the Lord, He opened my eyes to see that He had been right there all along. God miraculously pulled me to my feet and put a new song in my mouth. I immediately began writing songs of hope and praise. Because of what the Lord has done in me, my life's purpose is to point others to Him. I hope that many will see and put their trust in the Lord. He is faithful!
