Taste & See

Lord of the universe, Lord of humankind, 

It’s raining. My mood is overcast, too. Psalm 34 consoles... 

The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (v15)

But I’m fixated on the news: war in Syria, Iranian nukes, a murdered ambassador, Muslim protests, our very own deceit-filled politicians...

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. (v7)

And today’s Eucharist was opportune...

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. (v8)

Lord Christ, come close. Encamp in my head and heart. 

Deliver. Protect. Sustain. Amen.
