Here I Am Lord

Last night in the gathering of the Authentic Freedom Contemplative Community, we reflected on the topic of “call.”  We explored how each and every one of us is uniquely called to reveal Divine love, mercy, compassion, joy, peace, etc. in the world.  We were then invited to write our own Psalm response to this call.  I thought I would share with you what showed up in the Psalm that I wrote:

 

R:  Here I am Lord, I come to do your will

I am imperfect Lord, filled with judgment and rage,

and yet you called me.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.

I am not eloquent of speech.

I am young and lacking in wisdom.

And still you called me.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will

An insatiable passion for learning and a restless spirit you gave me.

Your law is written in my heart.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.

“Be strong, fear not,” are your words when I tremble in fear.

You remind me that I am precious in your eyes and that you love me.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.

Eyes and ears to see and hear the truth beyond the words.

Your word is more precious than the finest gold.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.

Grant me humility and compassion, mercy, peace and obedience

that I may know your perfect love and help others to know it too.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.

 

How is God calling you to reveal Divine love in the world?

What is your response?

One Response to Here I Am Lord

  1. Stephen says:

    The posting of your psalm reminded me of Leonard Cohen’s beautiful and moving song “If It be Your Will.”
