Psalm 130 with #She Reads Truth

Psalm 130
(My own words are in parenthesis)

"Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;"
(Oh Lord, I'm in deep.  
I'm not sure I will be able to crawl out this time)
"O Lord, hear my voice.  
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy."
(Lord, can you hear me?  Oh please listen for my voice!)
"If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness;
therefore you are feared."
(Thank goodness you don't write down every sin I commit!
If you did, it would be better for me to just lay down and give up.
You forgive, Lord, and I will forever honor you- thank you God!)
"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning."
(I will wait for you, Lord!!!  I know you will answer my 
cry and when you do, you will see that my hope is 
completely in you!  Without you, I am an empty
meaningless sinner.  I will wait for you forever 
and I will anticipate your coming!!!)
"O Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel 
from all their sins."
(Friends, listen to me!!!  Give the Lord EVERYTHING 
you have- He will NEVER fail you!!!  He will rescue 
you from your muddy pit and wash you white as 
snow.  He will save us all and forgive us of 
every sin we have ever committed!
Hear our prayer, Lord!
