Psalm 62
For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

1 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
3 How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down—this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
4 They fully intend to topple him from his lofty place; they take delight in lies.

With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. Selah
5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. Selah
9 Lowborn men are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie; if weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion or take pride in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

11 One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard:
that You, O God, are strong, and that You, O Lord, are loving.
Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.

Thank you for posting this Psalm. These two verses feel like the core of it all to me--of life itself.

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.

One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard:
that You, O God, are strong, and that You, O Lord, are loving.

When I read this post, "Far From the Home I love" was pouring out of my headphones, and then that last line...

Yet... here with my love, I'm home.

Wherever you go, you will be with your first and greatest Love. The Love these verses capture. You'll be home.

I love you,
Kate
