A Psalm for Sunday - on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11

CountersDidn't actually use this today - had planned to read it in the hospital service, but forgot to upload it to my Kindle... That's the problem with technology - the idiots using it! Anyway, here is my take on Psalm 46 for today...

God is our strength and a safe place to hide,

In time of trouble he’s always there to help.
So we will not fear, even if the earth should shake
And mountains be reduced to rubble,
though the seas rage and roar
and cities be swept away in the surge.

Pause

The River of Life sustains the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is within her walls, so she will stand;
God will ride to her rescue with the rising sun.
Nations rant and rave, kings and kingdoms fall;
The I AM speaks, and the whole earth dissolves .

The Almighty I AM is always with us;
The God of promise is our protector.

Pause

Come and see what I AM can do,
Sweeping away what we thought to be indestructible.
He will bring war to an end
From one end of the world to another;
Putting weapons beyond use eternally
And disarming hearts and minds.

Stop. Be still. Know that I AM is God;
I will be exalted among all nations,
I will be exalted over all the earth.

The Almighty I AM is always with us;
The God of promise is our protector.

Psalms 46:1-11
