Still Waters, by DianaDee Osborne

STILL WATERS   (Psalm 23:2)
ALBUM:      Amazing Psalms 'n' Promises
Song location  http://dianadeeosbornesongs.com/2009---2011-Song-List.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

LYRICS
1
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.
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.
3
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.
4
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.

REFERENCES:
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.
