Walking Psalm 72:15-19

Long may he live!

May gold from Sheba be given 
May people ever pray for him
and bless him all day long.

Let grain abound throughout the
on the tops of the hills may it sway.
Let its fruit flourish like Lebanon;
let it thrive like the grass of the field.
May his name endure forever;

May it continue as long as the sun.
 All nations will be blessed through
and they will call him blessed.

Praise be to the LORD God, the God of
who alone does marvelous deeds.
 Praise be to his glorious name
may the whole earth be filled with
his glory.
Amen and Amen.
Psalm 72:15-19
From Eugene Peterson's Praying with the Psalms:May 31
The double "Amen" is the emphatic, positive conclusion to these prayers.  Amen is the Hebrew word for "yes," a yes that comes to its richest meaning in an affirmative response to God.  We say yes to the God who says yes to us in Jesus Christ. 
We try.
We try to capture His glory in print, and pixels, photos, and words.
We share the bits of glory we can see.  
But His glory is more than what we consume.  It is something we experience, we breathe in. 
It is what we live.  
We live His glory.  
There is evidence of it everywhere.

Go enjoy a glory walk today, Favored One.  May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.
Amen and Amen.

"Praise ye the Lord!  O let all that is in me adore Him!  All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!  Let the Amen sound from His people again: gladly for aye we adore Him."  
Joachim Neander, "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty"

    1. Thanks! I'm really excited about becoming a better steward through blogging. And 100 in a year seems like the high-end number of manageable for me, so I'll be stretched in the process. Blessings, and thank for visiting and commenting.
