Psalm for a New Year
Happy New Year!
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Each year, I like to choose a Psalm to memorize and meditate upon throughout the year. This year I've chosen my Dad's favorite Psalm, which he often read aloud at family meals and gatherings.
It is so easy to get bogged down and discouraged by the things of the world and forget our real purpose here on earth ~ which is to give Glory to God. Psalm 100 is a wonderful reminder to praise and glorify God and to live joyfully!
For you shall go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
May you find abundant
Blessings of Peace and Joy
in the coming year!
