A reflection after listening to Shiloh Sophia in Psalms for Creation.
I sense your Presence.
I take Refuge in this Psalm of Creation.
As Above, So below.
May the blessings be.
Please take the essence of these words, and replace a “Lord” by any word that means “Light for you”.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.
Psalm 27 Of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
This theme resonates with me today, as in the U.K., we have just had two minutes silence for the annual Remembrance Day.
Great Grannie who raised me watched it each year, and she often quoted psalms to me at night before I went to sleep. Her presence is here with me know as I type this blog.
With the war in Ukraine, it feels particularly poignant. I feel torn with this subject as I am a pacifist, yet want to honour those who served us in the unfortunate wars that occurred.
