Reflections on Psalms and Trains


Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

--Psalm 73:25-26 (NIV)


May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
by the strength of your arm
preserve those condemned to die.

--Psalm 79:11 (NIV)


"But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not submit to me.

So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
to follow their own devices."

--Psalm 81:11-12


Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

--Psalm 84:5,10 (NIV)

I love trains.

You can go anywhere, do anything you want. Even more so than with cars.

Be anyone you want.


"Then why are you still here?"

"Those weren't my trains."
