Psalm 62:1,11,12    1Only in God do I find rest; my salvation comes from him. 11 God has spoken one thing— make it two things— that I myself have heard: that strength belongs to God, 12     and faithful love comes from you, my Lord— and that you will repay everyone according to their deeds.

There is a deep yearning inside me that begs to be connected to that insistence, that calling in the name of God. Perhaps. When I hear and act upon that insistence, I find strength; I am whole. Those around me want my immediate response to their every whim, but I’d rather take the time to discern a meaningful and valued course of action. Let me not fall into their ‘immediacy’ traps. In my time of discernment, may I take no account of social status or political persuasion, framing my action to that deep unheard inner calling in the name of God. Perhaps. And, if my plan of action is successful, I hope I do not puff myself up and strut like a bantam rooster who thinks his crowing created the day. Remember this, God’s weakness is my strength and my weakness is God’s strength. That is how the God-process works.
