Weeping

Psalm 30 A song. For the dedication of the temple. 1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 2 Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. 3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit. 4 Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. 5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts

Unfailing

I love this Psalm! I love the poet's honesty with God when things are going wrong, and God is silent, and there's no obvious way out of the crisis.  But then he reminds himself of what he knows from experience to be true: God's love does not fail. God has been good to him. Therefore he trusts God, he 'rejoices' in what he has experienced, and will experience again of God's 'salvation' (God's rescue, God's healing, God's gift of wholeness), he 'sings

Some thoughts from John about Jonathan’s sermon
John at Scone

I loved Jonathan’s sermon this morning. His theme of choosing to worship even when our hearts feel far from God reminds me of my own ‘Choose joy’ days, which I’ve described like this: Over the years, ‘Choose joy’ has been my mantra on days when I have been feeling low and sad, days which I sometimes describe in my journal as ‘choose joy days’. For me, to choose joy is to recognise that how the business of the day goes depends on my
