PSALM  63:4*

 

     To praise You as long as I live

     is my unfolding path of eternal love.

     To do something forever

     shows loyalty, faithfulness, character,

     patience, endurance, respect, truth,

     and todah**—the lifting of hands—

     gives praise and worship to Jesus.

     He is worthy.

     Everything I offer Him

     is nothing in comparison

     to what He does for me.

     He hears if I praise Him.

     He sees if I worship Him.

     Praying and worshipping are my true gifts to Him.

     Do I bring Him into my life?

Will I pass His test?

Will I sanctify Him forever?

Will I be at His side?

Will I pray?
Will todah be part of my life?

     There are Divine gifts,

     rewards, and miracles

     that only God can give.

     Do I notice these gifts when they occur,

     or is it my doings that make them happen?

     Is God’s existence self-begot or not?

     Is death ending or not?

     Jesus is here for many reasons.

     How do I honor Him?

 

       *I will praise You as long as I live
       and in Your name I will lift up my hands.

 

       **Hebrew for an extension of the hand.

       A choir of worshippers.

I am

I am the warrior reflexes quick almost psychic, body trained in endurance creating a temperance that makes the mind seem irrelevant, a world where instinct is prevalent.
I am the poet mind sharp creating words lyrically pleasing as a harp. A mind where neurons fire creating metaphors that transcend the metaphysical bringing the mind to the brink being lyrically critical.
I am the runner on the track running lap after lap, trying not to gasp as I attempt to pass everyone in the class.
I am the conscious being of relevant society changing the way I see reality day by day, cause when in I look in the mirror I see perfection because I see my souls reflection.
