Even I - A Reflection on Psalm 53

Only fools say in their heart there is no God......

Only fools......

Only them.....



The fool says there is no God, yet I am guilty everyday and in a million little ways of living my life as if this were true. 

I may not deny God's existence, but I do not live in the fullness of the Kingdom, do I?

In the breaking in and breaking through. 

In Heaven invading earth. 

In God moving through and in our lives on a daily basis. 


The knowledge of God's existence is ever present. The knowledge and understanding of His deity and presence is often overlooked and missed. 

My whispered, "Dear God be with him," when I see someone hurting doesn't acknowledge who God is the same way my hands moving to help, powered by the Spirit, does.

And when weary and discouraged I tell myself things will never change, that there are no more chances or opportunities......



Only fools say in their heart there is no God.....

Only fools......

Only them......

.........even I.

  2. I love what you did with this Psalm, Brenna. It doesn't take a lot of words to be thought-provoking. And I agree whole-heartedly. I do not live in light of God's kingdom much of the time. Which really, is practical atheism.


    I love the poetic rhythm that allowed these words to pierce my heart.

    Only fools......



    Only them......



    .........even I.
