But You, O Lord

The psalms are so beautiful. Many of them were written during or in reference to painful times in David’s life. Over and over, we see one specific phrase.

“But You, O Lord…”

Sometimes he described an enemy that could easily overtake him. Then, “But You, O Lord…”

Other times he described the punishment his sins deserved. Then, “But You, O Lord…”

Still other times, it would be internal distress or anguish that would threaten to overwhelm him and he would need the reminder. “But You, O Lord.”

Whatever this Monday holds for you, don’t forget who holds you.

Yet I am always with you; you hold my right hand. Psalm 73:23

Even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. Psalm 139:10

But You, O Lord.
