A Psalm 8 Story

This was my first real Christian piece so i decided to record it raw because the way I wrote it was amazing. I spent a lot of years hating a lot of people in my family because of how much pain they brought me. Until one day, I was dragged to the alter by my Spirit after debating with God by trying to convince him why I chose not to forgive. At the alter, I lay down my hatred and I got home, made a list (this took 5 days) of all the wrongs they had done and why I had to forgive. When I finished, it was time to pray and as I was praying, this poem literally ran out of my mouth so i started recording it and wrote it down after. I was never the same from the day I chose to forgive and it changed my because I emptied my heart of bitterness so God’s love was poured into me. This was where my salvation basically began because forgiveness was the hardest thing before but now I pray for those who curse me and it gives me joy! Who are we as mere imperfect humans that God spends so much time caring for us regardless of his majesty? Moreover, who are we to pay no mind to the care God gives because of earthly sins such as the lack of forgiveness.

 

Psalm 8

 Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
    Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and infants
    to tell of your strength,[b]
silencing your enemies
    and all who oppose you.

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
    the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
    human beings that you should care for them?[c]
Yet you made them only a little lower than God[d]
    and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
    putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
    and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
    and everything that swims the ocean currents.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
