After a week of hard work, culminating in some success yesterday, I find truth in the following reflection:
Shout for joy to the Spirit, all the earth.
Worship the Spirit with gladness;
come with joyful songs.
Know that the Spirit is God.
who made us, to whom we belong;
we are people of the Spirit, like sheep of the pasture.
Enter the gates with thanksgiving, give praise.
For the Spirit is good, an enduring love;
continuing through all generations.
- based on Psalm 100:1-5
Just as in moments of hardship when we ask for God's hand, we must recognise the Spirit at work during moments of happiness and contentment. In doing so we maintain humility - and remain open to further nourishment - like sheep of the pasture.
