Positioning ourselves to hear joy and gladness takes some intentional work. Personally, I have found utililzing a Heartmath HRV sensor to help in this process. Every morning I attach the sensor to my ear as I meditate on a psalm verse while I do some light exercise. The HRV sensor picks up my heart rate variability which is a reading of the time sequence between each heart beat. The more there is a healthy variability of time sequences between each heart beat the more we are in a position be in an optimal nervous system state called coherence. The sensor will tell by the sounds it gives off if we are in an optimal state of coherence or in a low state of coherence. When we entrain our nervous system to be in this high coherent state it allows us to recieve the sweet essences of the beauty of love. Here we can hear the essences that bring joy and gladness to our heart.
There is much more to be learned in this respect. Consider contacting me to learn more.
As we abide under the shadows of the wings of the LORD we know a sense of trust, of wonder and of joy.
How do we abide under the shadow of the LORD?First is giving heed to knowing that there is one individualized aspect of God who provides the apex point of control in which all others including you and me are focalized. That one is the Lord of Lords. As we accept this wonderful truth our lives begin to take on a new name offerring that which is coming from God out of heaven into the earth through us.
Abiding under the shadows of the wings of the LORD is acknowledging that there is a King that we all find centering in and that it is our love to do so. Here the shadow of the wings of the LORD really is a radiant shadow that fills our soul’s to overflowing.Here we then extend that radiance on earth through us providing warmth, security and love to all in our world.
Let us so abide.
Isn’t it good to acknowledge this statement? As we trust in Him we will not know desolation. Desolation is such a common experience in the world today. When the experience of desolation comes into our awareness it is good to stop and reorient to trust in the LORD. I find utilizing the HeartMath methods to come back into our rightful place to be very helpful in this regard.
First is to upright ourselves knowing as the psalms also state, “unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness.” As we upright ourself and focus our feeling attention on our heart area physically and spiritually while breathing a little slower and deeper than usual begins the process of orienting back to our trust in the LORD. While we hold this upright breathing pattern and opening up to our love in the LORD perspective comes back into our view. We can see what is real and what is not. We can then put our feeling attention on that which matters and discount or cut off the unreal. What is real is that which fills our soul with love, that which is unreal tethers and drains. Here in a greater state of “heart coherence,” we can enjoy being in a place that fills our soul to overflowing. Here the experience of desolation dissolves as we know the joy and richness of being in our rightful place.
“According as we have hope in thee” can also be said as according as we have confidence in thee. As we do find confidence in the LORD we know HIS mercy. HIS mercy that has been given to us all through the ages since the fall of man. As we have the awareness of HIS mercy we are filled with love to overflowing. Here it is our love to let the LORD’s influence be restored on earth through the expression of our living. As we reawaken to our single minded focus to provide this influence our living is ordered up. Double-mindedness has been the cause of a living experience that has gone no where. It has caused an experience of a lack of fulfillment, tiring out living and a lack of confidence. As we make the choice to know and cultivate our heart and mind interest to provide the influences of the LORD on earth in a real and true way without imposition our living experience takes on a charge. A charge of life, of joy, of enthusiasm, of assurance, of serrendipity. Here we emanate the influences of LORD through the expression of our living easily, gracefully and perfectly.
Let’s continue in this central way.
This is the concluding statement of the 23rd Psalm. It really is our greatest love to dwell in the house of the LORD forever as in heaven and while in the earth. As we remember and choose to do so “surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our life.” Let’s let our expression extend the house of the LORD for all to know the joy and wonder of living in and of this place.
Wonderful words here! The purity of the LORD is made evident in so many ways. The purity of a flower, the purity of the sun, the purity of a real conversation with a friend come to my mind as examples to acknowledge. Consider for yourself examples. As we do turn our significant attention to the purity of the LORD made manifest in so many ways we find ourselves knowing an ease and peace and pure joy. May we continue in this way.
As we move in the paths of the LORD we find a place of largeness. A place where we know we have a large influence. Here we know a great opportunity to influence all with radiant life. Here is our joy to be alive!!!
This is from Psalm 16. I find it succinctly provides such a tremendous seed to live by and feel compelled to share with you all. May it light up your heart as it does mine.
Psalm 15 lays out how to abide in the LORD’s tabernacle and dwell in His holy hill.
Consider the following in the depth of your heart:
He that walketh uprightly.
He that worketh righteousness.
He that speaketh the truth in his heart.
He that backbiteth not with his tongue.
nor doeth evil to his neighbour,
nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour,
nor putteth out his money to usury
nor taketh reward against the innocent.
I find these are great keys here to know more what it takes to constantly experience the joy and peace of abiding in the LORD’s tabernacle and dwelling in His holy hill.
Whatever the circumstances as our stance is to sing unto the LORD
we find the way to give thanks for the moments we have at hand. Even in relatively relaxing moments as well as more intense ones as our attitude is to sing unto the LORD our days are filled with joy and unique fulfillments.
