Meditation — July 8, 2018

Posted on Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Scripture: How blessed are those who live in your house; they shall praise you continually. Blessed those who find their strength in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of the Balsom (a herbaceous plant cultivated for its flowers, which are typically pink or purple and carried high on the stem), they make there a water-hole, and—a further blessing—early rain fills it.  They make their way from height to height, God shows himself to them in Zion. Psalm 84:4-7


Prayer: Thank you Lord for the grace that fills my heart from those I encounter who spread the Balsam before me, as I make my way from height to height in your presence.

Response: Your heart has been set on pilgrimage for many years. Isn’t it a wonder when you too pass through the Valley of the Balsam and pause to allow yourself to be refreshed in the Lord’s grace-filled moment with the presence of someone you encountered by chance?

Reinvigorated, you seek to remain accompanied in reaching a towering height of the spirit to be followed by another and another in the Lord’s grace and love.

Reflect that recent experience with those who are yet unaware of the heights surrounding, and the invitation to scale those heights in the Lord’s grace and love. Praise God!

All for this morning.
