Psalm 26

God,
there is no justice
in how I live.
I cast about for
integrity
and come up
with scraped knuckles
-and that is all.

I am trying to understand this struggle between this pre-Jesus idea of desiring, almost demanding justice from God, but post-Jesus, the call to willingly accepting and enduring injustice as Jesus did. Which is right? Can you have both? Desire both? Live both? I just don't know. Should we seek justice? Do we deserve any justice? I just don't know.

Preaching about God's justice this coming Sunday.

BTW, how do I get ahold of you? The phone number I got didn't work. No e-mail replies. Kept trying to get ahold of you when you were here. I have some things for you.

Marty, I used your "about me" comment -- "Your Politics Suck" as my fantasy baseball team name, as it stuck with me. - Jerry

If you sit in one place long enough with your eyes open, the entire world will pass by, sometimes twice.

What a beautifully small world to stumble onto your blog.

My life is simple and middle America. Are you famous yet?

I would enjoy being your friend again.

These psalms you write, are very interesting. They are quite beautiful, and thought-provoking to read. Although I am stuck with one question that I cannot seem to find an answer for by searching through your site and others, and that is: do you claim any revelation from God? In other words, do you claim these psalms are on the same authoritative level as God's breathed word? Or are you just writing poems based on The Book of Psalms?

If not then I must congratulate you, as you are a very talented individual, and these are most interesting to read.

If so, then...well, what else to say than Rev. 22:18,19

Hey, folks. Long time, no psalming. I've been busy writing actual songs and making albums and whatnot. Dunno if it matters, but it postpones the inevitable total meltdown.

In answer to the last comment I read:
I claim no authority in the biblical sense. Thes poems are not "God-breathed" but are simply my response to the psalms in the bible. That is all. And please feel free to reflect on the biblical versions more than my own. They are much better.

When things don't make sense, or when I feel like I'm the smartest of the apes, the Daily Bar and Grill always cheers me up. The Black Bean Burger is from the Lord's kitchen and the Old Scratch Lager is Heaven's condensation. Thursday nights. The new Sabbath.
Can Tommy get an Amen?
