O my soul, open the door to Love! Yes! Let us sing a song of diversity, a song of Oneness and Unity!
Psalm 43: A Lectio Divina
A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 43 from Nan Merrill’s book Psalms for Praying
Experience stillness and in the quiet hear what God is offering from these rich and hope-filled words.
Bring justice to the people
and strength on my behalf
to stand firm against oppression;
From all that is greedy and unjust
For You are the One in whom I
take refuge; yet,
Have you abandoned me?
Why go I mourning because of the
oppression of ignorance?
O, send out your light and your truth;
let them guide me,
Let them lead me to your holy altar,
to the inner home of integrity!
Then will I know You, Heart of my heart,
my exceeding joy;
And I will praise You with song,
O my Beloved, my Awakener.
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you disquieted within me?
My hope is in the Beloved, my strength
and my joy,
O my soul, open the door to Love!
Yes! Let us sing a song of diversity,
a song of Oneness and Unity!
For we are all One in Love’s Heart,
now and forevermore.
Let us ever reflect the Peace we are!
