God Is Our Fortress [Psalm 46 Personalized]

God is my refuge and strength,
a very present help in trou­ble.“
There­fore I will not fear though my life crum­bles before my eyes,
though I lose every­thing I once held dear.
whether it’s my fam­ily or friends,
or my job and all my possessions.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habi­ta­tion of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morn­ing dawns.“
Friends may mock, they may try to shake my foun­da­tions;
“he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come behold the works of the Lord,
how he has brought des­o­la­tions on the earth;“
He fights for me, and gives me the strength of 10,000;
He will silence my ene­mies tongues and deaden their actions;
He will destroy what they hold onto for strength.

‘Be still and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!‘
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress”
