TCP Original: Psalm 31

Short experimental piece based on The Cave Place's theme verse Psalm 31: 3-5. 

A few years ago, I had sent this verse to a friend struggling with addiction and I realized how much it pertains to my mental health struggles as well. I wrote it out for myself and taped it next to my bed. As I sat one morning with the NIV and Message versions open, pouring through the Psalms to find a theme verse for this project, I kept glancing at Psalm 31. I was stuck on trying to find a water metaphor because it is calming, but I just couldn’t find anything that worked. I kept finding that David was crying out to God because of his own sin or because of physical enemies. I looked over at the verse once again and said to God, “OK , I get it. It’s the cave.
