I'm ready, God, so ready, ready from head to toe. Ready to sing; ready to raise a tune: 'Wake up, soul!'...I'm thanking you, God, out loud in the streets, singing your praises in town and country. The deeper your love, the higher it goes. Every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness. Psalm 57:7-10
Raindrops, tap dancing on the windows, kept me awake off and on during the night. As I tossed and as I turned, the faithfulness of the Lord over the past week, year, lifetime flashed in my mind...vignettes of victories won; clips of comfort provided; and pictures of perseverance...
When daybreak arrived, so did the voice singing praises.
"Be exalted, God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth!" Psalm 57:11
Awakened and spilling thanks like raindrops for:
raindrops on parched ground
cool morning air
joy coming in the morning after a sad night
news of healed body
margin, that is, clear space in a packed world
displays of covenant loyalty, day in and day out
rainbows, double rainbows!
freshly planted pansies
