Psalm 115 finalist in poetry contest
Both of my most recent poems, Psalm 114 and Psalm 115, have alternating lines of 9 and 8 syllables; yet each of them forces the reader to read the poems with different cadences and rhythms. 35 more to go before I complete all 150 Psalms. Praise God!

Psalm 114
When Israel departed from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, and Israel His dominion. The sea observed and fled; the Jordan turned back; the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Ps 114

Psalm 111
Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds . . . . Psalm 111:1-3

Psalm 107 finalist in poetry contest
I finished writing my poem, Psalm 106, nearly 4 months ago. And in that span of time, I didn't write a thing . . . until around Easter. I really liked the repetition I found in Psalm 107: the falling away of God's people and returning again once more.

Psalm 100
A Psalm of Thanksgiving

What's Come to Pass
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” ​Luke 2:15

Psalm 97 finalist in poetry contest
The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the distant shores be glad. Clouds and darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are His throne’s foundation. Fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side. Psalm 97:1-3

Psalm 93 finalist in poetry contest
The LORD reigns! He is robed in majesty; the LORD has clothed and armed Himself with strength. The world indeed is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; You are from all eternity. Psalm 93:1-2
