Psalm 70 Reflection

Written By: carolmoye - Mar• 03•14

Got my draft copies in hand and editing today. I thought I’d share a few of the reflections from the new book with you this week.

Just like I get songs stuck in my head, the rhythm and rhyme of this Psalm reflection haunts me. It’s rather Dr. Seuss-like to me.  The writer of the original Psalm was growing impatient waiting on the Lord to save him. I think we have all felt that way at some point. I know I have. I know God is working, but sometimes waiting is SO hard.

 

Hurry Up Lord!

 

Hurry up Lord! Come right away

Don’t think I can manage to wait another day.

 

Stop those who are coming after me,

End the taunts, hear my plea.

 

Save me now, God of strength and might.

Do it now. I need you tonight!

 

“Do not rush me,” I hear you say.

Things always turn out better that way.

 

I calm down and sing to thee,

Knowing in you, I’ll have the victory.
