Assignment – Soli Deo gloria – I

Our pastor tasked us with an assignment this week: to write a psalm for every day of the week. It is meant as a form of spiritual reflection or spiritual exercise, if you like. I will be posting my psalms every day, as they fall from my mouth. Psalms of praise. Psalms of gratitude. Psalms of wrestling. Psalms of frustration. Psalms to glorify He who does not break promises. Psalms to reflect on the beauty of the Lord.

 

One

Lord, oh Lord!

I shudder at your might

I fall to my knees and

I tremble at your magnificence

For I am not worthy

To even think about

Your radiance glory

In the times I am in darkness

you point out the Light

In the times that I stray

you pull me by the hem

I am but a cub;

seeking your safety

I am but a cub;

held safely in your jaws

In the desolate city

you are the electric signs

that guide me back home

In the emptiness of the world

you are warmth

You make me worthy
