I find as I sing praises to the Name of the LORD my world is enlivened. As we acknowledge His Name, the influence of the LORD through all that is beautiful and real we cannot help but sing praises to His Name. Let’s continue to sing praises as we love all that is beautiful and real acknowledging it in nature and in those we love.
Everything of beauty is ultimately an expression of the focus of God. The focus of God for all of us living on earth is the Lord of Lords.
Appreciating all that is beautiful and real in expression is a way to connect very directly with the spirit of the LORD. Here is the essence of worship.
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.
Our harp can be considered our human soul of body, mind and heart. As we praise the LORD with all of our capacities of body, mind and heart we allow the sounds of beauty to play out into the world. Here we blend in sounding the song of the LORD continually as it has been eternally sounding knowing our place. Here we know the wonder of harmonizing oneness creating all things a new!
I love this verse especially in considering what it takes for our soul to be at ease. Ease where we find an enjoyment in the moments we have. Ease where we can allow things to pend while taking care of what needs taking care of in the immediate moment.
It is good to consider fear as reverence for the Lord and to know the consequent peace that comes along with positioning our consciousness in such a way.
Consider this verse in a quiet moment and open up to the wonderful ease that it brings.
As I was reading the healing verses I found this verse to beautifully strike my heart. It made me think more how abundantly nature opens the hand of God that gifts us with deep satisfaction. I further consider how each of us can do the same for others. That we may be an expression of the open hand of God extending that which is beautiful, refreshing and real.
Orienting in the way of these words positions us to provide for our world. Whether we remember to do this when we find ourselves in a bit of intensity or when we may be feeling great opening up to what it means to praise the LORD with our whole heart lets us acknowledge our opportunities and provide something of beauty into and through them. Here we are the blessing we are meant to be. Let’s let this awareness deepen in our heart that we may be blessing during this holiday season.
As we upright and still our soul while opening to acknowledge a presence greater than our conscious awareness something of our beloved may come through ourselves. Another psalm verse written shortly after in 110 has the words, “in the beauties of holiness.” I love putting these two verses together “that thy beloved may be delivered—in the beauties of holiness.” As we still our soul in the beauties of holiness our beloved may be delivered. Our beloved which is real, large, integrated, worshipful, majestic, wonderful loves to find its way into expression. Let’s upright and still ourselves in that which is beautiful and whole that we may be filled full to overflowing letting our beloved outwardly bless all the earth through us.
“Yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.” This is how this psalm verse ends. As we orient in this way it brings an awareness that allows for a priority to be placed on the work that we do. Really the work we are designed to do. However, it is not a matter of just doing the work. It is a matter of allowing the beauty of the Lord to descend upon and through all that we do and how we do our work. This is that special something that brings to our work a quality of grace, poise and brilliance. Here, we do become a light unto this world that all hearts and minds truly long for as an example for all to know the beauty of the Lord in and through their own living and work.
The perfection of beauty God hath shined. Don’t you love these words? They touch my heart and hope they touch yours too. As we share in a space of the perfection of beauty there is something so wonderful beyond words known. Let’s continue to know the beauty of the the truth of these words and spirit. Good to share with you.
