I want to open up this song and use it to inform our hearts and our heads as we prepare to walk back into the building this Sunday. There are lots of opinions, preferences and questions, and above it all is the calm, cool, collected Father of the world who invites perspective and silence. YEP, silence...silence. 

Read it over 3 times outloud and read it slow. 

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
    always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
    and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
    Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! 

A river brings joy to the city of our God,
    the sacred home of the Most High.
God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.  From the very break of day, God will protect it.
The nations are in chaos,
    and their kingdoms crumble!
God's voice thunders,
    and the earth melts!
The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us;  the God of Israel is our fortress. 

Come, see the glorious works of the Lord:
    See how he brings destruction upon the world.
He causes wars to end throughout the earth.
    He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God!
    I will be honored by every nation.
    I will be honored throughout the world."
11 The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us;
    the God of Israel is our fortress. 


 Dare to live greatly,
Rick
