Goodness shines all around

Psalm 36: 1-9

​An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.

For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.

The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.

Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.

How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.

They feast in the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

​Lord I’m transfixed

Water cascades down from your fountain

Droplets of beauty reflecting the sun

Light splatters in a thousand shades

Goodness shines all around

I drink in the sight

I drink in the justice of your ways

I drink with abundance

Light and life

Water and wisdom


Brining perspective

Bringing understanding

Touching my soul – gently

But firmly

Lest I flatter myself too much

Or cease to be wise or good

Or let my mind wander where it shouldn’t

Or stray to gossip and idle talk.

Lord may I drink from your fountain of life forever!
