I am working on a post processing current world events and racism but I am not there yet in writing. I want to be thoughtful and mindful of the sensitive topics on all of our radars right now. I started a draft because I was feeling things deeply and wanted to get stuff out but I am learning that sometimes it is best to hit “save draft” rather than “publish”.
In the meantime, I had this song on my heart that I want to share. It is from Psalm 133. The Melody I learned from an old cassette tape that my Mom would play often. Thank you Mom for helping me hide the scripture in my heart.
Here is the text:
“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.”
Psalm 133:1-3 ESV
Sometimes living in unity means stepping out of my comfort zone and being a peace maker rather than a peace keeper. I used to want to keep the peace and try to keep people happy, not rock the boat or share my opinion, usually at the expense of my own health. I am on a journey of learning what it means to be a person of peace and working towards unity as far as it depends on me and trusting God with the rest.
More thoughts to come. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this song.
