But I am like a green olive tree
in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
forever and ever.
I will thank you forever,
because of what you have done.
In the presence of the faithful
I will proclaim your name, for it is good.
Wrestling with injustice and oppression
the Psalmist always found a way
back to trust
in the steadfast love of God.
Patience and resilience,
waiting out the ravages of life
voicing grief and desolation
to the One
all things are made whole
love and justice meet.
God of wholeness, when life conspires to convince us otherwise, remind us of your love and your power. Give us patience and perseverance to wait on your time and to know that your justice prevails.
