“Canto 89″*

Who is like God?
Who could be more amazing or powerful?
You are the creator of life,
the only breath in all of heaven and earth.
Nothing can live or die without Your say-so.
Nothing can exist without You.
You alone give me breath and life,
and You have blessed me beyond my imaginations.
You promise to be with me always;
You promise the blessing of children to Your faithful.
Where have You been when I called for You?
Where did You go when I needed Your voice?
I felt alone, separated by sin and doubt,
and I could not find You no matter how hard I searched.
Why did our children have to go?
How long must we suffer like this?
God, You are faithful; I trust in You.

*From Psalm 89.  As I mentioned earlier, one of the things I like to do is read a psalm and rewrite it so that it applies directly to my life.  This is my version of Psalm 89.  My challenge to you this week is to write one of your own.  It doesn’t have to be fancy or even especially eloquent; if rhyme and meter weren’t particularly important to David or his translators, then they are not all that important for us, either.  If you’re feeling froggy, I would love for you to share what you come up with.  You can always e-mail me or message me on Facebook if you don’t want to share it on the web at large.
