Praise the Lord!

Standard

Psalm 150: 1 Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! 2 Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness! 3 Praise him with trumpet sound;  praise him with lute and harp! 4 Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! 5 Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 6 Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! 

It’s the final day of 2020 – and what a year it’s been.

I want to thank all of you who read this blog. I am well aware I’m not that great a writer, but I write anyway trusting that the Lord may do something of value through the words I share here. I’m grateful for you because you are a big part of what motivates me to show up in this space. I particularly appreciate your comments, whether they be affirming or challenging. It makes this space more dialogical.

As for our passage for today, I love the psalms because they reflect the gamut of the human experience. There is celebration and pain, life and death, victory and defeat, love and hate. Psalm 150 is a fitting ending to the book of psalms because it provides an appropriate last word. In good times and bad times, praise the Lord!

See you in 2021.
