Monday Meditation~Loving Some SON Shine!

      Psalm 67 (NIV)

May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make His face shine upon us,
that Your ways may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.
May the peoples praise You, O God;
may all the peoples praise You.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for You rule the peoples justly
and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise You, O God;
may all the peoples praise You.
Then the land will yield its harvest,
and God, our God, will bless us.
God will bless us,
and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.

As I enjoy some days at the beach in the sunshine, it is my prayer that the SON shines even brighter!

Be sure to come back on Wednesday for some worship that will bless your flipflops off!!

Just this morning in Shannon Mullins' Living Power Online Bible Study, she was pointing out that God raises up kings and leaders (good and bad) to do His bidding. It's easy to get fearful when we look at the circumstances of this world. But His Word reminds us that He truly is in control. What a comfort!

Thanks for another confirmation of what I've already read and studied this morning. God is speaking through you!

Love this: Your ways may be known on earth because they're known everywhere else! Time for us to get in gear!!

Enjoy your time at the beach and PLEASE post pics of Brooklyn in the sand! Love you!!

Vonda, Sandi, and Susan, loved hearing your thoughts and was blessed by them! It thrills my soul the way that He speaks to each of us so personally through His Word!

Susan, pics to come right away!

Love you all!

Beautiful Psalm! Thank you for sharing. Our lives will show evidence when we have spent time with the Son! ;) (just like our physical lives do, but what a great spiritual application as well. :) )

Bless you, Hester ;)

Kristi Butler said...

Praying sweet blessings for you!

Kristi--This Psalm brings so much hope and a call to action. "May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You." There have been so many tragic events that have occurred recently in our nation as a whole and in our town where I live, from senseless acts of destruction and suicide, to horrific accidents, and there has been a cloud of sadness and fear just hovering. This Psalm is exactly what I needed to read. Thank you for reminding me that the Son still shines bright! Praising that His light always shows the way in darkness.

I am so thankful you shared on both NOBH and Show and Tell.

Love and God bless,
