I sing aloud to the God of my strength. I shout for joy to the One who delivers. You answered me in the secret place of thunder. You tested me in the troubled waters. Oh, that I had listened to you in the days of my wandering. I would not submit in my stubborn heart, but turned to my own counsel. You brought me out of the desert of my indiscretion and into the warmth of your marvelous light. You fill my life and satisfy me to the depth of my soul. I raise my song in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“In distress you called, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you in the waters of Meribah.” (Psalm 81: 7 ESV)
