Psalm 93 (Psalms on the Trail)

“The waters have lifted up, O Lord, 

the waters have lifted up their voice;

the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.   

psalm 93: 3-4

Mightier than the sound of many waters,

mightier than the breakers of the sea,

mightier is the Lord who dwells on high.”  Psalm 93:3-4

Here is a song by Nichole Nordeman that I listened to many times after a day’s hike along the Potomac and Youghiogheny rivers on the 2008 sabbatical.  Eight years later, God is still smoothing away many sharp edges.  Change takes time.


1. Take this verse with you and ponder its meaning for you throughout the day.  What do you notice?  What do you wonder?

2. Or read all of Psalm 93 to discover how this verse fits into this psalm.

3. Or comment with a photo of your own that is a window of this verse’s meaning for you.

Tomorrow’s psalm  will be Psalm 94:2.

Starting January 1, 2016, for 150 days I am posting a daily psalm verse with a photo that is a visual meditation on the text for me.  Each day a verse from the next psalm is chosen until all 150 psalms have been featured.   To participate you may subscribe to my blog at or “friend” me on Facebook and watch for the daily links to blog posts.  Disclaimer:  I am not a photographer and most of the photos are from a cell phone or small camera while hiking the Appalachian Trail or the C&O Canal/Great Allegheny Passage Trail.
