Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

The LORD is a WARRIOR- The LORD is HIS name


Psalm 78:65
Suddenly the Lord was up on his feet like someone roused from deep
sleep, shouting like a drunken warrior. He hit his enemies hard, sent
them running, yelping, not daring to look back. He disqualified Joseph
as leader, told Ephraim he didn't have what it takes, And chose the
Tribe of Judah instead, Mount Zion, which he loves so much. He built
his sanctuary there, resplendent, solid and lasting as the earth

Exodus 15:3
The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name.

Isaiah 49:25
But this is what the LORD says: "Yes, captives will be taken from
warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with
those who contend with you, and your children I will save.

Jeremiah 20:11
But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will
stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced;
their dishonor will never be forgotten.

Psalm 21

A David Psalm

1-7Your strength, God, is the king's strength. Helped, he's hollering
You gave him exactly what he wanted;
you didn't hold back.
You filled his arms with gifts;
you gave him a right royal welcome.
He wanted a good life; you gave it to him,
and then made it a long life as a bonus.
You lifted him high and bright as a cumulus cloud,
then dressed him in rainbow colors.

(wow did you read that.... it was that rainbow cloud..... i never knew
it was in scripture)
You pile blessings on him;
you make him glad when you smile.
Is it any wonder the king loves God?
that he's sticking with the Best?

8-12 With a fistful of enemies in one hand
and a fistful of haters in the other,
You radiate with such brilliance
that they cringe as before a furnace.
Now the furnace swallows them whole,
the fire eats them alive!
You purge the earth of their progeny,
you wipe the slate clean.
All their evil schemes, the plots they cook up,
have fizzled—every one.
You sent them packing;
they couldn't face you.

13 Show your strength, God, so no one can miss it.
We are out singing the good news!

Love to the deepest places...... He's already Won it............ xo cathryn
