Mid Afternoon Meditation 6-14-19

“But my people would not listen to me;
    Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
    to follow their own devices.

13 “If my people would only listen to me,
    if Israel would only follow my ways,
14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies
    and turn my hand against their foes!
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
    and their punishment would last forever.
16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
    with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” Psalm 81:11-16

What do you think are the elements of true submission?

Life

All gather at the wedding or casket.

Always the same, crazy drunk dancers

Shy

Flowers,

Baked

Stuffed

Chicken

And

Green bean

Almondine.

We can’t escape the circle.

I can’t say, “I won’t walk the circumference of the dance floor”

Neither can you. But still we say it.

I

Will not

Be

Moved. I

Will

Break the

Cycle.

We end up on the other side anyway,

Having never moved at all, or run at it

Like some desperate groom chasing his bride.

Some old man chasing oxygen from plastic tubes.

Drawing us to our ends. We are all stuck

We are all stuck with our free will.

Morning Direction From Scripture 6-13-19

I heard an unknown voice say:

“I removed the burden from their shoulders;
    their hands were set free from the basket.
In your distress you called and I rescued you,
    I answered you out of a thundercloud;
    I tested you at the waters of Meribah.[c]
Hear me, my people, and I will warn you—
    if you would only listen to me, Israel!
You shall have no foreign god among you;
    you shall not worship any god other than me.
10 I am the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Psalm 81:5-10

What are you doing to let God fill you today?
