Looking Lovingly


above and beyond
everything else.
God of safety.
pf promise.
of hope;
you are our certainty,
our surety,
our foundation
and our steadfast rock.

You are a God of planting
a God who breaks weapons,
for there is no place for them
in your place of beauty and peace.

What we need is to stop,
listen to you,
take stock,
look at you
rather than the things we have deemed as important,
look at others,
people you have made
and love
as much as you love us

and then
consider how we might live
together for you
for your protection,
and love
is for each and every one of us.
we need fight no one for it.

Our call
Is to bring your way of life here
– for everyone

Psalm 46

Psalm 46 (MSG)

A Song of the Sons of Korah

46 1-3 God is a safe place to hide,
    ready to help when we need him.
We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom,
    courageous in seastorm and earthquake,
Before the rush and roar of oceans,
    the tremors that shift mountains.

Jacob-wrestling God fights for us,
    God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

4-6 River fountains splash joy, cooling God’s city,
    this sacred haunt of the Most High.
God lives here, the streets are safe,
    God at your service from crack of dawn.
Godless nations rant and rave, kings and kingdoms threaten,
    but Earth does anything he says.

Jacob-wrestling God fights for us,
    God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

8-10 Attention, all! See the marvels of God!
    He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
Bans war from pole to pole,
    breaks all the weapons across his knee.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
    loving look at me, your High God,
    above politics, above everything.”

11 Jacob-wrestling God fights for us,
    God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.
