Comforting Psalms

Psalm 42
1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

consistent (kənˈsɪstənt)

— adj (foll by with )
1. showing consistency; not self-contradictory
2. in agreement or harmony; accordant
3. steady; even: consistent growth
4. maths (of two or more equations) satisfied by at least one common set of values of the variables: x + y = 4 and x -- y = 2 are consistent

b. Compare complete Also: sound (of a formal system) not permitting the deduction of a contradiction from the axioms
6. obsolete stuck together; cohering

Consistent, a quality (specifically the third definition) that I do not seem to possess. I'm an all or nothing type of girl and I crave the order and harmony that consistency brings.

It is such a struggle to not be all here or all over there but to be steady and consistent day by day. I know that I can't do anything in my own strength. Thankful that the Lord will never cease in teaching me.

1 Corinthians 15:58

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
