A Meditation on Psalm 119: 49-72

This testimony to God’s goodness from a faithful follower is sprinkled with “Alleluias” throughout the psalm.:

Your statutes have been my songs

The Lord is my portion 

At midnight I rise to praise you                                                                                                              

The earth, O Lord is full of your steadfast love                                                                    

You are good and do good

A Meditation on Psalm 45

A quick internet check confirms Psalm 45 is a wedding song, composed and sung on occasion of the marriage of the king. The psalm begins "you are the most handsome of men; grace is poured from your lips; therefore God has blessed you for ever." He is a successful warrior, and just, "you love righteousness and hate wickedness." The bride is "decked in her chamber with gold-woven robes; in many-coloured robes she is led to the king."

Psalm 126

Toni’s Kitchen has learned to dream.  We have seen the hand of the Lord, as fortunes are restored and families are moved from instability to stability, from homelessness to housed, from hungry to nourished. 

Toni’s Kitchen sees the power of responding to the call to feed the hungry.  It draws us together, builds community and helps connect our fragile neighbors to valuable services.  We see those in need move to independent living and resilience. We are filled with praise and joy!

A meditation on Verse 1 of Psalm 30

“I will exalt you, O Lord, because you have lifted me up…“ (Verse 1)

As the Jubilee Center, our Ministry is to serve a diverse community of families, while lifting up our most precious resource, our children. I believe it is our responsibility to provide our amazing kids opportunities to soar beyond the sky and become the great individuals they deserve and are destined to be. As they grow into adults, my hope is they will one day have the strength and ability to uplift others who are in need.

A meditation on Psalm 31

Psalm 31:11-13

I am the scorn of all my adversaries,
      a horror to my neighbors,
an object of dread to my acquaintances;
      those who see me in the street flee from me.
I have passed out of mind like one who is dead;
      I have become like a broken vessel.
For I hear the whispering of many—
      terror all around!—
as they scheme together against me,
      as they plot to take my life.

A Meditation on Psalm 37

“Trust in the way of the Lord and do good,” urges the psalmist. Don’t be distracted by what others are doing or the successes they may be having, just follow the good as you see it and wait patiently for the Lord to be present.

I’ve long been intrigued by the mystery and beauty of a flower bulb and how the future flower exists within the bulb, sloughing off its wrappings after the long wait of winter and emerging from the ground as leaf and then flower. The bulb waits patiently to become a flower.

A meditation on Psalm 38

Wow.

The psalmist is feeling the anger of God in vivid detail.

Feeling the punishment of God

Feeling the absence of God

God’s anger has afflicted him in his body

God’s arrows have pierced him and his iniquities have overwhelmed him.

He is feeling utterly numb and crushed.

And even as he cries out to the Lord, it goes on – even friends and companions have drawn back and neighbors have stood him up.

He is surrounded by folks that wish to do him ill.

It sounds a lot like Job
