Psalm 42

by davesandel on March 28th, 2011

I want to understand why God does what He does, but I don’t.

So I’ll lead with desire.

In God’s presence I come quicker to peacemaking and giving, as my own body and emotions quiet down.  I long to be with you, Lord.

God’s calm confidence gives me courage and strength.  My soul pants for you, O Lord.

Beauty, order and harmony follow God’s touch.  Skin like a baby’s skin, healed and whole, in just a little while.

Seven times a little while.  Seventy times seven.

haven’t I seen God’s glory now and then?

no matter why, or when?

why so downcast, o my soul? Why so bleak within me?

in the steady roar of his waterfalls

God waits for me once and once and once

again
