Psalm ~ May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer...

The words in this one are a bit wacky at times but I've tried to make the best of it!   Sometimes I've found songs based on Psalms that just cut out the parts that don't "fit with our theology" or that are uncomfortable for us to hear nevermind sing! Even the various lectionaries I come across will often politely omit parts of a chapter that don't align well.  But that seems wrong to me somehow.   In any case what can we take from this? We can see that the love between God and his people is…

The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalm 28:7  Without God, we find that we are stuck in powerless lives, lost in a visionless future, and alone in our times of trouble. God hasn’t decided to just send you a gift of strength, He has come personally to be with you. He is your strength, with you now. #thelordismystrength

This is such a powerful thought to me- without God in the picture without giving him the figurative reigns in our symbolic "houses" our labour and energies are all in vain. Without putting God on the wall to watch for enemies our own efforts to guard and protect are a waste of time.  I think it's a sobering thought for many of us. We can all admit that many times we're building our families careers missions and ministries in our own strength.   It might not make it easier to manage but one…

Lyric from my song "Come Find Rest" a reflection on #psalms23 (link in bio). I love how confident King David was in the goodness of #God.  Sometimes we pray timidly "Jesus please give me just a little goodness and mercy..." but David sang out "SURELY goodness and mercy will chase after me all the days of my life!" David knew as well as anyone that this kind of love from the Lord was pure grace but having grasped ahold of it he boldly proclaims it to the world. We can be certain of God's…

I just love Psalm 40 on my low days. When I'm feeling empty & down. When I just don't feel like singing praises. When I'm throwing myself a pity party. This chapter seems to express all I'm feeling. But I'm reminded that when I'm feeling empty, I should be asking God to fill me up. Empty is ok, because I'm letting go & have room to be filled up with God's love & grace. I've had Tori Kelly's song Hollow on repeat when I feel like this "So hold me Wrap me in love, fill up my cup Empty and…

Last Sunday afternoon I sat at the big ol' grand piano to write the next Psalm. It was going to be a toss up between Psalm 18 and 28 and 33 all of which have yet to be completed.  28 was moderate in length so as I said I sat at the piano to come up with an idea. But the chord that I played kinda got misplayed so that instead of A major 7 I played a B over A.  But I just let it ring for a minute and thought: "that's cool!" So a new melody was born.  The Psalm is a cry out to God like so many…

This video is a compilation of a photograph my sister took on her way to our church one night aliong with some snow stock footage... it really captures the feeling of a snowy evening at St. Paul's Anglican in Sydenham.  I love meeting with my friends and family at this church to sing our worship songs from the TOP of our LUNGS to hear the word of God spoken to experience the fellowship and acceptance of fellow believers.  I wish you could join me wherever you are to worship with me in this…

spiritualinspiration:   “I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair…He set my feet on solid ground…He has given me a new song to sing…” (Psalm 40:1-3, NLT).   Have you ever felt like you were in a pit of despair? Just like God lifted David out, God is going to lift you out. Where you are right now is not where you’re going to stay. There are brighter days up ahead for you filled with favor, promotion, and increase…

“Stillness is the altar of Spirit.”      —Paramahansa Yogananda             “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”      -Psalm 18:2         “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
