My heart is moved with a good theme;
I c]address my d]verses to the e]King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 You are the most handsome of the sons of mankind;
Grace is poured f]upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 Strap Your sword on Your thigh, g]Mighty One,
In Your splendor and majesty!
4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth, humility, and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You h]awesome things.
5 Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
6 Your throne, God, is forever and ever;
The scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your companions.
8 All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes, and cassia;
From ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You joyful.
9 Kings’ daughters are among Your noble women;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10 Listen, daughter, look and incline your ear:
Forget your people and your father’s house;
11 Then the King will crave your beauty.
Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.
12 The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
The wealthy among the people will seek your favor.
13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within;
Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
14 She will be brought to the King in colorful garments;
The virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.
15 They will be brought with joy and rejoicing;
They will enter into the King’s palace.
16 In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth.
17 I will make Your name known among all generations;
Therefore the peoples will praise You forever and ever.

I’m honored to have Elizabeth Turnage author of Recovery to Restoration: 60 Meditations for Finding Peace & Hope in Crisis as a sponsor this month.
It is not a matter of if, but when, a crisis will break into our lives. Whether it’s a natural disaster or relational disaster, a broken wrist or a broken marriage, a baby miscarried or justice miscarried, crisis thrusts us into a season of recovery. The journey of recovery can arouse many emotions: shock, fear, anxiety, doubt, grief, anger.
Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage soothes us in our distress with the surpassing peace and sure hope of the gospel. In each brief meditation, she offers Scripture, relevant stories, biblical encouragement, prayers, and suggested music, all of which point us to our deepest hope: God has written a story that takes us through recovery to restoration. God has begun his redemption work in us through Jesus, and one day, Jesus will return to restore all broken things. In that day, we will know the full joy of our restoration hope. Open this book and begin your journey from recovery to restoration.
Each meditation includes:
• A relevant Bible verse.
• A brief story related to waiting in a health care crisis.
• A gospel reality that brings peace and hope.
• A brief concluding prayer.
• One or two suggestions for further action—Bible reading, links to music, reflection questions, other calming activities.
