A Personal Psalm

Something I penned for a men's small group meeting the other day:

Who am I to challenge you?
Do I not know who You are?
Have I lost my way in a fallen world?
Can you not find me anywhere I go?

You are the swiftest river,
Your source I cannot drink from.
I am thirsty as you pour into me,
I am too weak to drink alone.

You are the highest mountain,
Your peak I cannot scale.
I long to view your kingdom,
I cannot see without your eyes.

You are the deepest ocean,
I cannot fathom your depths.
I cannot surface without you,
I sink down endlessly.

I am ever thirsty,
I am ever lowly,
I am ever drowning,
Only my Lord can raise me up.
