So I ran straight out the door!
My hopes were high
But they all soon hit the floor.
My eyes were bright
Fixed on a view that I’d longed for
Then trouble came running
And I lost the metaphor
It’s a mystery
What tomorrow will bring
It’s a tug-of-war that can undo my heart
Yet, when I glance back
I know You were in it
For You love us, Lord
From start to finish.

Therefore my Heart is Glad
“I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.”Psalm 16:8-9
“Christ, as man, did always set his Father’s will and glory before him, as he himself often declares: see John 10:18; John 14:31. He is at my right hand — To strengthen, protect, assist, and comfort me. And this assistance of God was necessary to Christ as man. I shall not be moved — Either from the discharge of my duty, or from the attainment of that glory and happiness which are prepared for me. Though archers shoot grievously at me, and both men and devils seek my destruction, and God sets himself against me as an enemy; yet I am assured, he will deliver me from all my distresses.”Benson Commentary
