When will it be finished?

I couldn’t come up with the words on my own,
so, I stole these words.

The last year of my life:
Those who hate me without cause are more numerous than the hairs on my head. These enemies who seek to destroy me are doing so without cause. They attack me with lies.

I cried:
Arise O Lord, in anger!
Stand up against the fury of my enemies!
Wake up, My God, and bring Justice!
Let the wicked be disgraced; let them lie silent in the grave.
May their lying lips be silenced.

I screamed:
Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my crying!
The Lord gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly.

I heard:
Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

I read:
Don’t put your confidence in powerful people;
there is no help for you there.

I thought:
I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?
What can mere mortals do to me?

I said:
Only by Your power can we push back our enemies; only in Your name can we trample our foes. It is You who gives us victory over our enemies; it is You who humbles those who hate us.

I asked:
Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth!
Grant me purity of heart, that I may honor you.

When it’s FINISHED, what will it look like?
Unfailing love and truth have met together.
Righteousness and peace have kissed!
