WisdomPsalmsWoulda-Coulda-Shoulda by Shel Silverstein
All the Woulda-Coulda-ShoulasLayin in the sun,Talkin bout the thingsThey woulda coulda shoulda done But those Woulda-Coulda-ShouldasAll ran away and hidFrom one little Did.Psalm 34Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he left.
Thank God!I will extol the LORD at all times;his praise will always be on my lips.My soul will boast in the LORD;let the afflicted hear and rejoice.Glorify the LORD with me;let us exalt his name together. (Psalm 34:1-3)
Face Up!I sought the LORD, and he answered me;he delivered me from all my fears.Those who look to him are radiant;their faces are never covered with shame.This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;he saved him out of all his troubles.The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,and he delivers them. (Psalm 34:4-7)Taste Gods Goodness!Taste and see that the LORD is good;blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.Fear the LORD, you his saints,for those who fear him lack nothing.The lions may grow weak and hungry,but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.(Psalm 34:8-10)Listen Up!Come, my children, listen to me;I will teach you the fear of the LORD.Whoever of you loves lifeand desires to see many good days,keep your tongue from eviland your lips from speaking lies.Turn from evil and do good;seek peace and pursue it. (Psalm 34:11-14)
Cry Out!The eyes of the LORD are on the righteousand his ears are attentive to their cry;the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,to cut off the memory of them from the earth.The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;he delivers them from all their troubles.The LORD is close to the brokenheartedand saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:15-18)No Condemnation!A righteous man may have many troubles,but the LORD delivers him from them all;he protects all his bones,not one of them will be broken.Evil will slay the wicked;the foes of the righteous will be condemned.The LORD redeems his servants;no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him. (Psalm 34:19-22)Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature; God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:1-4)Thank God!Face Up!Taste Gods Goodness!Listen Up!Cry Out!No Condemnation!
