Read Psalm 19


Read Psalm 19

         1The heavens declare the glory of God;
         the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
         2Day after day they pour forth speech;
         night after night they display knowledge.
         3There is no speech or language
         where their voice is not heard.
         4Their voice goes out into all the earth,
         their words to the ends of the world.

         In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
         5which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,
         like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
         6It rises at one end of the heavens
         and makes its circuit to the other;
         nothing is hidden from its heat.

         7The law of the LORD is perfect,
         reviving the soul.
         The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
         making wise the simple.
         8The precepts of the LORD are right,
         giving joy to the heart.
         The commands of the LORD are radiant,
         giving light to the eyes.
         9The fear of the LORD is pure,
         enduring forever.
         The ordinances of the LORD are sure
         and altogether righteous.
         10They are more precious than gold,
         than much pure gold;
         they are sweeter than honey,
         than honey from the comb.
         11By them is your servant warned;
         in keeping them there is great reward.

         12Who can discern his errors?
         Forgive my hidden faults.
         13Keep your servant also from willful sins;
         may they not rule over me.
         Then will I be blameless,
         innocent of great transgression.

         14May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
         be pleasing in your sight,
         O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.


God is revealed to us in the rising and setting of the sun, change of seasons, sounds of nature.  Do you pay attention to the beauty that surrounds you?


Lord I listen for the birds and I praise you.
I listen for the traffic of life around me and I praise you.
I see the changes of seasons and the dawn of new days and give you thanks for your permanence, faithfulness and order.
