Praying the Psalms -Psalm 100

 24.11.10

Folio 111 verso from a psalter (British Library, Stowe 2). Initial D from Psalm 100 (Beatus).


Thanksgiving is almost here, the last details are on our list and we are excited... It makes me happy to think that Thanksgiving is the opening door to the way that leads us to the Nativitity. We start with thanksgiving, with a grateful heart, we slow down to give thanks to the Almighty One for his mercies .

What a better way to prepare our hearts for this Advent season, and for the celebration of the Incarnation of our Lord?

 Let us walk towards Bethlehem with thanksgiving in our hearts!


Make a joyful noise to the Lord, 
all the earth!

Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
O my soul!
Do not be quiet today,
praise Him out loud!

Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come, serve Him, O my soul,
For all that He has done,
Come and serve Him
in your home and family today!

Come into His presence with singing!

Join me little ones,
come with mom and dad and let us
enter today 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.

God the Creator of all,
the Lord of lords,
has made us, and we are his!
We are His because He bought us
with a price.
We are His and not ours.
Our days are in His hands,
we are His sheep and
He nourishes our souls
and bodies.

Let us give Him thanks!
Let us make a joyful noise!

Let us serve Him with gladness!
Let us come into His presence with singing!

We can not see this and remain quiet,
we cannot see His goodness and not be glad.
We cannot see His new mercies every morniing
and not be thankful!

Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
enter 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.

Lord, your goodness, your mercy,
your grace,
they are too wonderful to comprehend!

When fears try to threaten me,
I will raise my voice and give thanks
to you, O Lord,
who has promised me goodness,
and steadfast love,
and faithfulness to all generations!

I invite you to come next week to this place; let us consider together the mystery of the Incarnation of our Lord; let us try to gaze at the greatest of all miracles, God coming into this world in flesh, to ransom us from the bondage of sin.


We will be here every Wednesday on December to consider these things; you are invited to link to your post or leave a comment; let us Celebrate His Coming!

Rebecca Writes has a great article that will help us start on the same rung; in it she defines the term Incarnation; I invite you to read it this week.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
