Psalm 87

A small psalm of quiet, enduring joy

I am created, founded, saved by God
My life is God’s holy city and God loves me
In me, whatever my faults
Whatever my doubts, my darkness
In me is also, always, God’s glory and grace
I focus so often on the darkness
Despair, depression, doubts, defeat
That I forget the victory
I forget that God Herself created me
Loves me, lives with me
I forget that God rejoices in me
Please and praise
When my heart sings
When my spirit dances
It is from You, God, that my joy flows. Amen.
