Tehillim Forty-Two: God

“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; when will I come and appear before God (Psalms 42:3)?” What I love about this verse is the reference to the living God. I’m sure it’s something that I’ve commented on before at some point in this project, but I’m very drawn to this concept. I’ve never been comfortable with philosophical ideas about God not being as present today as He has been in the past. While this does make it harder to justify God’s [in]action when it comes to many of the atrocities of the modern era, for me it’s easier to swallow than resigning myself to His lack of presence at all. I definitely see God as alive, as dynamic, and as constantly in relation to each one of us, as we are to Him.
