Psalm 143 Bench

At first, this wooden bench was scary

Noises running in and out of my ears

Signs and wonders requested but denied

Life is more than I can see and feel

Never left alone and never rejected

Okay I’ll sit here but my mind is racing

Pass every speed limit and caution light thoughts swerve

God, you know how I am

Teach me how to listen and obey

I’ve been afraid of sitting still

This old wooden bench and silence can be where we meet up.

Hear and give ear

Do not enter into judgement

I muse on the work of your hands

Don’t hide and no matter where I go, help me trust

Teach me, forever teach me of your ways

I always want to be with you, you’re safe.
