“It’s a bit wet out there”, “Nonsense, if you run fast enough you’ll miss the rain”. Well I must have ran too slow, because I got wet.
I’ve been focussing on the musical setting of Psalm 16 and thinking on the duality of Heaven and Earth, God’s kingdom in heaven and the kingdom here on earth being shaped into God’s kingdom. If you are into music, I am taking two tonalities which have a common note C; Ab major for heaven and A minor for earth and somehow I am going to bring the two together. Jesus represents the link between the two, but how do this in the music I’ve still got to work out – watch this space.
It was also a question today, “how can you believe in a God you can not see?“
My answer is usually, I can clearly see the evidence of a God at work, but others clearly do not see.
Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
My soul, you have said to the Lord,
“You are my Lord,
My goodness is nothing apart from You.”
I believe and I put my trust in God because He was the one that saved me those many times in the past. I remember them, I write them down so I do not forget, and I tell others about those times so they can also be recounted to others to hopefully build trust in the Lord in years to come. Out of the deep mud in the garden grew some beautiful daffodils that shone, and so must we shine in the mud of this world.
Dear Lord, in you we put our trust, today for deliverance from the ills of the world, to have hope and to be caretakers of the world helping others and caring for your kingdom. Amen.
