For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.” vs. 4

Psalm 92:1-4

The word “glad” breathes happiness and pleasure. It’s a word we use when we have nothing but good feelings in our hearts and life is full. Sometimes gladness comes on behalf of others, those moments when a friend shares news with us that has them smiling, and we let them know how happy we are for them. At other times we wake up in the morning and there’s just something about the day that’s special, the way the sun peeks through the cracks of the bedroom curtain, or the cooing of doves in the cool moments before the blast of heat that hits just before 10 in the Arizona desert. It’s absolutely wonderful when gladness visits and goodness and mercy poke their heads in to say “hello”. The psalmist believed that his gladness had come from the Lord’s work, and it’s hard for us to disagree. Even when our minds are worn down by the cares of the world we can’t help but see signs of God’s grace in the wonder of creation. This place in the universe where we make our home is nothing short of spectacular, and the way all things are bound together in an intricate web of perfection makes us sing for joy. Wow, how great it is to be alive in this place at this time! It’s the best that could ever be–and it can’t help but make us glad!
