Sharing with you today, one of my favorite meditations by Leslie Brandt, based on Psalm 133,
and a bike ride…
“How great and glorious is our God!
From hour to hour,
from day to day,
our lives ought to overflow
with praise and gratitude.
It is amazing, even fantastic,
how our God permeates every facet of our lives
and can work out His purposes through them
despite our human faults and failures.
He creates beauty out of the dust
of our fallen natures.
Out of the ashes of our failures
He brings forth meaning and purpose.
He exalts the humble and enriches the poor.
He transforms our weakness
into channels of strength.
Our emptiness becomes a vessel of His fullness,
our spiritual poverty the basis for His eternal grace.
Our errors and mistakes are
stepping stones to success.
Our defeats are but incidents
on the road to victory.
But this is God’s doing, not ours.
How great and glorious is our God.”
