Text: Psalm 29

Lebanon Cedar

Lebanon Cedar

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

Where in your own life right now is your forest stripped bare?  What, in your religious or political or family life breaks the cedars or flashes forth flames of fire?  What do you know of the shaking of the wilderness?  Take a piece of paper and some art supplies and quickly give some form to the breaking of cedars and the shaking of the wilderness?  Sit with the chaos for a moment in silence.

Where in all this is the voice of the Lord?  What might God be saying to you in all this?

What blessings of peace might be a part of the chaos?

– Beth Harrison
