A Psalm of speaking self truth

When all I can do is proclaim truth over myself even if I don’t see, hear or feel it. I know it to be true, what else can I do but stand true to what is there. 

I have been written on “not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” -Corinthians 3:6

-

1 Vindicate me, my God,
    and plead my cause
    against an unfaithful nation.
Rescue me from those who are
    deceitful and wicked.
You are God my stronghold.
    Why have you rejected me?
Why must I go about mourning,
    oppressed by the enemy?
Send me your light and your faithful care,
    let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
    to the place where you dwell.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
    to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
    O God, my God.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

-Psalm 43

I only asked for a drop, but you send me a shower.

Even though I see it and hear if I don’t feel it, You just seems afar.
So you sent the rain that would soak me. And though I set out to climb this mountain your purpose for me wasn’t to get to the top but to turn my seeing into hearing and feeling.

I woke up a little earlier before our day started and took some soak time(cubby hole time) with God by the lake and I was seeing the sprinkling rain from the sky fall in the lake, the reflection I would see would change because of the ripple effect from the water drops. So I asked, “JESUS I’m just asking for one drop from you, I’m not asking for much just give me a drop please.” I didn’t receive anything else and so we started our training day, but during our cubby hole time I went back toward the lake to ask God again but instead God lead me up toward a path, up a hill, and I found myself wandering up one of the nature trails. As I was climbing with God, I didn’t have much else to say but had one focus of getting to the top. 

Somewhere along the way it started to rain a little harder I could see it through the trees and hear it but the overcast  of branches were protecting from getting wet. “God are you teasing me? I ask for a drop and you allow me to see and hear it but why can’t I feel it?” Yeah so I kept going and it started raining harder and as stubborn as I am I know God is more stubborn and it started raining all over me, I asked for a spiritual filling of living water and God literally showers me in rain water. I was too far out to avoid the rain so what can you do, get wet, embrace it. 

I still wanted to get to the top but I know now that God was telling me to stop and soak in His voice as He was confirming what has been on my heart the last couple weeks - His promise is over me and though everything around me seems dry to keep on, even if I don’t “feel” it, I’ve gone too far in to ever deny I don’t see or hear Him. I believe God’s promise is over our community, this may sound vague but there is no denying that His time of filling is coming. It might look intimidating with the large dark storm clouds overhead at the moment but hold onto the truth He has given . It’s going to storm down, soon and I hope we’ll all be too far in to avoid it. 

"From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’” -Acts 17:26-28

Succulent from November 2013 - though I neglect you and forget to water you all month, I don’t know how but somehow you are still alive…
You sprout anew. The bubble I bought you in stops you from going up but still you don’t stop, and go sideways instead. If you can then —

The waiting period.

How fleeting everything is, even the strongest convictions. If they are based on solely emotions in an instant it’ll blow away. I just think it’s funny how I already know this but don’t know at the same time. Expectedly unexpected?

I hope to feel what I have yet to feel but everything up until this point has either been a pale comparison of the first time or the disappointment of the reality of this world. What holds me through is the waiting period. The waiting period where anything and everything is possible, and nothing can be tainted.

So would I rather wait in the limitless possibilities of unreality or face the reality of this Earth where everything is much too predictable. And everytime my predictions of this Earth prove to be true, only adds to the credibility of that everything is pale/disappointing. Leading me to the place of, is it worth it. What’s the point.

Everything I am holding onto doesn’t live here, which makes it hard to understand why I’m here then. Maybe my whole time on Earth is just a long waiting period and my name just hasn’t been called to leave just yet.

If I were to have stopped there it would seem as though I am hopelessly lost person but although it may seem so because of this side of me I hope for a brighter light that can overcome over and more this darkness.

Cross My Mind - Twin Folks

Girl it’s really good to see you come around
I know you been lost, I’m glad you got found
Cause I’ve been a little lost myself

Found an old picture of you on my phone
Got a new feeling now I won’t let go
Til I can, I can tell you for myself

Why don’t you stay for a while
It’s been too long since I’ve smiled
There’s too few people I trust
I won’t ask you for too much
Good conversation and such
And if I’m being honest

From time to time
You cross my mind
Good company is hard to find
From time to time
You cross my mind
So stay with me
Just for the night

Got an old record in a beat up sleeve
That same sad song that you sang to me
Back when you couldn’t say it for yourself
Look I’d be lying if I said to you
That I know exactly what I should do
But I’ve set my whole heart on trying

Why don’t you stay for a while
It’s been too long since I’ve smiled
There’s too few people I trust
I won’t ask you for too much
Good conversation and such
And if I’m being honest

From time to time
You cross my mind
Good company is hard to find
From time to time
You cross my mind
So stay with me
Just for the night

From time to time
You cross my mind
Good company is hard to find
From time to time
You cross my mind
So stay with me
Just for the night

One apple, one palm fruit, 30 pounds stewed dog root three children play loudly along a sound valley want you to be mine, knowing it’s not fine, no it’s not right, now is not the time one thing my eyes say when they gaze, upon your gaze upon your light let it be right… let it be right all around me people seem so, they seem so happy how can they be happy, when they know you aren’t with me if you could only see the way I, the way I dance when i’m alone you would marry me certainly now there’s no doubting no o o with all the troubles this world has going, take me in your rowboat till the sun’s not glowing and when the world aint turning I can be your sweet delight.
 

Sunboat

One apple, one palm fruit, 30 pounds stewed dog root
three children play loudly along a sound valley
want you to be mine, knowing it’s not fine, no it’s not right, now is not the time
one thing my eyes say when they gaze, upon your gaze upon your light
let it be right… let it be right all around me people seem so, they seem so happy
how can they be happy, when they know you aren’t with me
if you could only see the way I, the way I dance when i’m alone
you would marry me certainly now there’s no doubting no o o
with all the troubles this world has going, take me in your rowboat till the sun’s not glowing and when the world aint turning I can be your sweet delight.
