Psalm 84

“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty!”

This is a long psalm – there are many things to be taken from it, but I am
focused on the last verse: “O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who
trusts in you.”
The psalm speaks of the joy of worshipping in the temple – even the birds
want to be near the altar.
It is a joy for me to worship in my church; I often like to visit when no one
else is there, to sit quietly and feel the loving presence of God.
To speak to Him, not to ask for anything but rather to thank Him for my
many blessings.
There have been times when God’s plan for my life has not always been
clear to me. Over the years I have learned to trust in Him – because for
me worrying means not trusting.
I have come through some struggles in my life and have always found
God’s presence to be a comfort, and his house – my church - a place
where I find tranquility, clarity and hope.
That truly is a blessing.

Dear Lord, thank you for being the “sun” in my life; your presence is light
and life to every new day.
