We Re- Read:   Psalm 98

SAVOUR the words

Sing to God a brand-new song. He’s made a world of wonders! He rolled up his sleeves, He set things right.  God made history with salvation, He showed the world what he could do. He remembered to love us, a bonus.  To his dear family, Israel— indefatigable love. The whole earth comes to attention. Look—God’s work of salvation! Shout your praises to God, everybody! Let loose and sing! Strike up the band! Round up an orchestra to play for God, Add on a hundred-voice choir. Feature trumpets and big trombones, Fill the air with praises to King God. Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause, With everything living on earth joining in. Let ocean breakers call out, “Encore!” And mountains harmonize the finale— A tribute to God when he comes, When he comes to set the earth right. He’ll straighten out the whole world, He’ll put the world right, and everyone in it.

“Beauty was created by God for a purpose: to give us the experience of wonder. And wonder, in turn, is intended to lead us to the ultimate human expression and privilege: worship. Beauty is both a gift and a map. It is a gift to be enjoyed and a map to be followed back to the Source of the beauty.”  Steve deWit

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness. “  Charles Spurgeon

 

Reflection Questions

What are some of the things that holds you back from fully enjoying beautiful moments in life? What does it mean to you to savour your relationship with God, to enjoy your relationship with God to the full? What do you think God enjoys (savours) about you?

Training Exercise

Consider what stirred you regarding this week’s content and decide on your own exercise for the week

Blessing for the week

May your life be filled with slow savouring moments that restores and brings life. May you grow fit in slowing down and being present for those moments. And may those moments connect you to God who is the Source of Life and Beauty. Amen
