A Reflection on Psalm 109
I felt hate but it was called love,
I heard lies but they were called truth,
I sought trust but was given uncertainty,
I needed compassion but tasted contempt.
But, God, Your hand saves me.
What I seek is found in you,
Love, truth, trust, compassion,
These are the marks of praise from you to your creation.
My love returned hundred times,
Your protection given to my family,
Opposition disarmed by love,
I am blessed by your overwhelming generosity.
