Into the throne room…

My Psalter reading this morning…

Hearing Keller inspired me to read the Psalms every month and began during my sabbatical in May. My dear fellow disciple Bill gave me this psalter over a decade ago and it is a blessing.

brought me to Psalm 100 and I decided to use it in a copy-meditate* time. Here is the result…

During Epiphany, we need reminding to run to the throne of Grace where is the light so that we are made more like him to be his lights… I see a pattern of worship in this psalm:

Make a joyful noise, all the earth (go walk in the woods and listen)…

Serve with gladness (dwelling in him fights feelings of drudgery)…

Sing!

Recognize that God is god. I am not (this is really hard)…

I didn’t create me (so I can’t fix me)…

Come to the throne with gratitude (cultivate thankfulness by practicing it)…

Regularly remind yourself that he is good…

and faithful…

always.

Glory to God!
