12.21.2020 – but there they all are,

but there they all are,
overwhelmed with dread, where there was
not a thing to dread

From Psalm 53.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on God.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
    you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Verses 4 and 5.

Of course this the Psalm that opens with:

The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”

But there I am.

I admit right now I am overwhelmed with dread.

Covid.

Finances.

What might happen in the White House.

But I am not fool enough to say there is no God.

That leaves me to work out that there is not a thing to dread.
