Still Waters, by DianaDee Osborne

STILL WATERS   (Psalm 23:2)
ALBUM:      Amazing Psalms 'n' Promises
Song location   https://dianadeeosbornesongs.com/Songs-2008-2012.php

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC.... written in 1/2 hour  on my "travel guitar",  beside "still waters" that I  "accidentally" (in God's guiding way)  found while desperately driving anywhere.... anywhere.....

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:
      God led me to this special place by a quiet river at a time of horrendous distress....  and it has become my quiet place to worship and  listen to Him.  This quiet, simple song, was written there on the day that I “accidentally” found a river inlet.... written in deep grief, but under the comforting blanket of God's loving Presence.
     God has a special place for YOU.... just tell Him you yearn to obey Psalm 46:10 but need His help to find “Still Waters”   if there's no quiet place you have yet found...
Dedicated to our Comforting God, 16 January 2011

Here I am, God, beside still waters.
Here You are, God, right beside me.
You, God, lead me beside still waters.
I'll follow You wherever You lead:  Psalm 23, verse 2.
Storms of life rage all around me.
Griefs and sorrows,   dark doubts and pain.

Yet, You, Lord go with me to show still waters.
With Your help, Jesus, I forever trust You:  Psalm 27, verse 11.
God, You know my heart's desire. 
You know all my passions, my hopes and my dreams.
Yet I trust You, Lord where You lead me.
I'll be still and just know You're god:  Psalm 46: verse 10.
Still waters run deep, I have been told.
Jesus, I pray that you'll please give me grace to
deeply trust You......... Lord where You lead me, I'll
be still .............  and rest in You Psalm 46: verse 10.

Psalm 124: 4, 5, 8:   "Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have gone over our soul; Then the swollen waters Would have gone over our soul.... Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth."  NOTE:   THIS IS THE SCRIPTURE THAT LED TO MY MUSIC MINISTRY that God has honored me with.... see the song ABOVE MY SORROW SEA.
from Jonah Chapter 2
Jonah disobeyed God blatantly, like a child having a tantrum.  His punishment COULD have been death, and he did suffer consequences (the "whale" story:)  YET, from his story came the most BEAUTIFUL example of how God SAVES YOU:

        Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish's belly. And he said: "I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction, And He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,  and You heard my voice.... Then I said, 'I have been cast out of Your sight;
       Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.'  The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; The deep closed around me; Weeds were wrapped around my head.... When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; And my prayer went up to You, Into Your holy temple. Those who regard worthless idols  forsake their own Mercy.  But I will sacrifice to You  with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation  is of the LORD." So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
