Opening The Invitation

My Unsung Psalm

A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY AND MEMOIR

My Unsung Psalm

Have there been times in your life when you have wondered about a day like this, a day when time stands still? Have you felt this moment brush across your memory like a warm blanket? It is a memorial to something you once knew and long to embrace. The memory keeps you moving forward, hoping one day to be found in God's presence again. This moment is here, and every breath that surrounds you is His.

If God appeared before you now, would you know Him?

I invite you on a spiritual journey with me, to God's house.

Here is where your journey begins.

     The day is long. The wind is hot. The sun is still well above the horizon. No clouds are in site to offer relief, and only your shadow falls upon the ground. You long for the sinews of life to come and fill you. Unconscious of your movement, you wipe the sweat from your brow. Light, from the sun's rays, blinds you for an instant, and you shield your eyes. All at once, you are very aware of the air surrounding you as it touches your skin. 

     In anticipation, you turn and look ahead.

     Is He coming for me?  The thought fills your mind, and you remain held within it.

     Now, not far from where you are, you see God walking. He wasn't there before, your are certain. but God is coming to you.

     As the space between you and God lessons, you can no longer wait. You run to greet Him, rejoicing. Are you overcome with emotion? Do you laugh, or cry, or both, realizing He is finally here with you? Immediately, you understand how very alive you are in His presence. 

     God's arms welcome you into them. How long have you waited for this moment?  As you reach for Him, do your hands appear calloused and worn from years of labor? Are they bruised and in pain? Or are they smooth and polished, with youth still left within them? Are you steady, or are you shaking when God embraces you?

     God speaks to you now. He is God! And He is your God. He tells you that you have always known Him and He has always been here with you.You were never alone.You know the truth in His words. His words enter into every cell inside you, becoming part of you, and suddenly you remember everything because God is here with you.

     God speaks to you now. He is God! And He is your God. He tells you that you have always known Him and He has always been here with you.You were never alone.You know the truth in His words. His words enter into every cell inside you, becoming part of you, and suddenly you remember everything because God is here with you.

     Your lips thirst for words to say to God. All you know to do—in this moment when God’s love surpasses all your understanding—is sing. Like a child of God, you sing softly the words of God’s psalm.

Of All The Psalms Written To God This One Came Back

My Unsung Psalm

I am God.

I am your God.

You have always known who I am.

I have always been here with you.

I love you.

Oh, Lord.

I feel so lonely and afraid.

Give me the courage

and

the strength

to live my life.

Yes, Lord.

I have always known who you are.

You have always been

here with me.

I am not afraid.

If God Appeared Before You Now Would You Know Him?

People tried to take faith away from me. They tried to make me doubt God. But they did not succeed. My faith is unending. Even if someone were to prove that God did not exist, I would still believe, because I hear His voice. I feel the touch of His hand. If I am to fail at everything else in my life, I can tell you now, loving God is the one thing I got right.
