All the Time – Mulled Psalm 31

insane
God, each one of us needs You.
Help us see we’re all refugees,
desperately seeking asylum.
Without Your fearless, life-renewing Love,
children and grandchildren come to see
churches as insane asylums.

Love, each one of us needs You.
Help us see we’re all prisoners,
desperately seeking freedom.
Without Your timeless life-empowering hope,
students and reporters see Christians
as wall-building timekeepers.

Jesus, You give each of us all we need.
End our years of snubbing and being snubbed;
unwrap the layers that mummified us.
With Your joyful, childlike courage
parents and grandparents will find
resurrection communities.

Spirit, You are present to each of us.
End our days of mindless, heartless
prideful greed and paranoia.
With Your deep breath peace infusions
sisters, brothers, servant-leaders will keep
encouraging one another.
