My Reflective Response to Psalm 139:13-16

“For You have created my conscience.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You, for I am awesomely, wonderfully made!
Wonderful are Your works—
and my soul knows that very well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me when I was unformed,
and in Your book were written the days that were formed—
when not one of them had come to be.”
(Psalm 139:13-16 Tree of Life Version)

My conscience she knew Your creation before she knew You, and You knew me before I was to know of the life journey I was to go on.
You knew my journey was to be a unique expression of Your love, and Your love gives me strength to carry on.
Even when I get anxious or feel uncomfortable with my body, Your love it is what ultimately gives me strength to carry on.
I know that even when hatred is spewed my way and disease gets ravaged upon my body, that it is Your love that will ultimately give me strength to carry on.
For it is the knowledge that I have of the fact that I and my journey are both expressions of who You are that I never ever had the thought of opting out.
And I Know my journey it was written in Your book even before any of it had come to be.

I Am A Beloved Daughter Of The Father

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I hold very close to my heart
‘Cause people they denied me my opportunity to
Have a relationship with my very loving God
The opportunity to explore my femininity and robbed
Me my opportunity to live as a girl
I never got to live as a girl

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I got by always pushing on forward
Even if I needed rest for a while
Eventually I would always go push on forward
To the understanding I can sill get to
Live as a woman who gets a relationship
Ever expanding relationship with her very loving God

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding

Given It All Of My Best

I’ve gone and given it all of my best
And no this ain’t my time to go rest
‘Cause you went set me loss on a quest
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
As a result I now have a spiritual leaning
For depth in our Sunday morning worship services see
‘Cause I’ve already had religious introductions given to me
‘Bought things from Judaism to human sexuality in RE
So I wanna take it to the next level
And this might get me perceived as a rebel
But I don’t think I’m alone on this here
‘Cause fellow raised UUs that I’ve conversed do appear
To desire more ritual in worship like I’d here
As you may have guessed I’m saying to watch
What could be if we UUs turned up a notch
Even just one the depth of our religious thought
We’d have more I think staying here from young to old age

A Hallelujah Now

Don’t feel you
Around me now
Your not around
Me now I
Need you around
All me now

All I gotta
Do is keeping
Me from you
And me surviving
Rather be living
Life with you

I feel blockage
Around and within
All of me
And it’s keeping
You from being
All around me

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God her’s a hallelujah
A hallelujah now

Finally Time

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature
This thing we’ve now
In this sacred space
We’re just being spiritual
Spiritually oh so adolescent

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its time for
Us to be able
To say this thing
In this sacred space
It’s our own spiritualities
That are now maturing

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature

Finally time
For us
To mature
This thing
In our
Sacred spaces
And it’s
Our spiritualities

Desperate

You had a long respite
Lots of time to think
Now you know you’re desperate
And you need big courage
To seek what you’re needing

If you don’t tell others
What it’s that you’re needing
If you don’t go see
If others may also be
Needing what you’re needing now

People won’t know you fully
If you don’t go see
If others may also be
Needing what you’re needing now
What you’re needing now is…

You’re desperate for a life
With communal praise and worship
That’s so vary God centred
You won’t get it if
You don’t seek seekers of…

A life more God centred
It’s what you’re needing now

Giving Thank And Praying

You are giving thanks
For your blessings yes
And for all that
You have been given

It’s not always enough
To get you to
Where you can really
Truly get to shine

You are praying for
Many more blessings to
Come your way so
You can shine more

Oh God thanks for
All the blessings you
Have given to me
Up until this day

May you give me
More blessing to come
For this day and
For the next amen

Rather Be Spiritually Thriving

Need’a hear the holy
When it’s calling me
But this world’s still
Calling to tell me
That God’s not real
And I gotta survive
I’d rather be spiritually
Thriving not just surviving

I am spiritually sore
Browsed and battered from
As a child hiding
That I was religious
From my school mates
I need’a be bold
Commit to never do
Anything like that again

Need’a hear the holy
When it’s calling me
But this world’s still
Calling to tell me
That God’s not real
And I gotta survive
I’d rather be spiritually
Thriving not just surviving

They are spiritually sore
Browsed and battered from
Doing like I did
Hiding that they’re religious
From their school mates
They need’a be bold
Commit to never do
Anything like that again

Need’a hear the holy
When it’s calling us
But this world’s still
Calling to tell us
That God’s not real
And we gotta survive
We’d rather be spiritually
Thriving not just surviving

Need’a hear the holy
When it’s calling us
But this world’s still
Calling to tell us
That God’s not real
And we gotta survive
We’d rather be spiritually
Thriving not just surviving

We’d rather be spiritually
Thriving not just surviving
