I will go in the strength of the Lord God:
I will make mention of thy righteousness.
My lips shall rejoice when I sing unto thee,
and my soul which thou hast redeemed.
~
In thee O Lord, do I put my trust.
Thou my hope, my fortress, my rock.
I will praise thy truth,
O my God.
~
We will strengthen our hands for this good work.
The God of heaven will prosper us.
So gracious and kind, He will never forsake.
In his manifold mercies leads the way.
~
In thee O Lord, do I put my trust.
Thou my hope, my fortress, my rock.
I will praise thy truth,
O my God.
~
I will go in the strength of the Lord.

As I searched for a verse for 2012, I somehow ended up in the book of Nehemiah. Reading through the first two chapters, I was struck by the thought that although Nehemiah's job as a cup bearer was perhaps an important one, he definitely was not in a position of leadership. I was encouraged by the fact that he was not a soldier, a preacher or even a teacher, and yet God used him. So, what did Nehemiah have that took him to Jerusalem? He had a burden....a burden that caused him to weep before the Lord and to intercede for his people....to confess their transgressions that had caused them to become a reproach....and he had a desire to do something about it. He saw that there was a need, and God put it on his heart to go.

I continued to search for a verse that said, 'go' and found my verse for 2012 here:
 Psalm 71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
P.S.  This song was written almost a year ago, but my new computer wouldn't let me upload it. I now have the latest version of BIAB, which is compatible with my computer, so hopefully I'll get back to posting songs again soon!
