Read Psalm 84:1-7


Read Psalm 84:1-7

84             How I love your Temple, Lord Almighty!
2           How I want to be there!
I long to be in the Lord’s Temple.
With my whole being I sing for joy
to the living God.
3     Even the sparrows have built a nest,
and the swallows have their own home;
they keep their young near your altars,
4     How happy are those who live in your Temple, always singing praise to you.
5     How happy are those whose strength comes from you,
who are eager to make the pilgrimage to Mount Zion.
6     As they pass through the dry valley of Baca,
it becomes a place of springs;
the autumn rain fills it with pools.
7     They grow stronger as they go;
they will see the God of gods on Zion. [1]

Think

Last week we also read one of the ‘pilgrimage’ Psalms.  Do you share the Psalmist’s passion?  A deep desire to be with God, to be closer to God.

Pray

Lord, even though I sometimes feel far away; I know you are with me.  Open my heart, my mind, my eyes and ears to your presence this week.
