day 29 (trek 2): put a psalm in my heart

We focus on Psalm 75-77 today … and find ourselves led to sketch something of what we find in our focus.

This morning we read Ps. 75. I’m sketching a pair of pillars.

“You say, ‘I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.’” (75.2-5)

Around mid-day Psalm 76 is where we find ourselves. I doodle a drawing of a gift.

“Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.” (76.11)

Near the end of today we read Psalm 77. My pencil draws a lightning bolt.

“Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked. Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen. You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.” (77.18-20)
