We crafted our own Psalm during worship. Read it below, or you can also listen to how we made it here.
We waited, and waited, and waited for God.
And God heard us.
In times when I needed to move a sofa,
God, you were there to lift.
When my toilet runneth over,
God, you were my plunger
God, when my car broke down,
You put it in neutral
And gave me strong legs to push.
God, you are like toys,
Complex and full of fun.
God, you are like exercise,
You keep my cells alive.
You are the coffee pot in my kitchen,
You wake me up every day,
And are the source of my life.
You are annoying like a kidney stone, God.
You cause me great consternation
You throw up red lights in my life,
Forcing me to be patient
And consider others.
In God, my life is filled with the warmth of
A thousand burning suns.
The sweat of my brow
Is relieved by the cool breezes of God’s breath.
I am fully rested in the Lord,
Like a full night’s sleep
With no interruptions
And no bathroom breaks
The abundance of God makes me share my good fortune
Like popcorn at a movie,
And plums on a churchyard tree,
And the proliferation of grandchildren.
Come heal the lives of your people, O God.
My body shakes
Be my stillness.
Fill me with your breath,
And put in me a new song.
God, there is great fear.
Give us the peace that passes all understanding,
Radiating from within.
Praise be to God whose kingdom is
full of video games
and endless delicious food
with no calories
like a never ending game of Fortnite, and Minecraft,
and Halo IV,
and Paw Patrol
as big as a John Deere tractor
and as sweet as never-ending sugar.
Praise be to God!
Christ the Good Shepherd
