Song of the Psalm

Just seems so soothing and healing to recall Words that heal and not harm. The Psalmist give us many but today in the USA this Psalm sings loudly in my heart!🎼✝️❣️

Psalm 133
133:1 “How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!

133:2 It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.

133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore.”

  1. 133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore.”

    Buffalo must be a blessed city. Although it had been ranked third from the bottom in poverty by a census last year, Nicholas’s Buffalo baseball team has whites (Polish, Italian, Greek, German- Jewish family), Blacks, and Hispanics on its roster. So far, the only angry moment was a yell out at the Black home plate umpire. And the entire large city park where they play (on one of the six diamonds !) is likewise populated.
    Philip’s and Nicholas’s schools are similarly diverse.

    1. Phil, your reporting of an American City in unity gives gladness of heart. ❤️ It gives hope that unity is possible and reminds us to each strive to met this standard so the promised blessing will dance upon our heads and homes.

  2. Sure was a breath of fresh air to read the Psalm above Sara posted and then Phil’s comment this pm. I agree with Sara that it “gives gladness of heart.”…and “hope”.
    Thanks to both for the encouragement.

  3. How can we encourage someone today by showing God’s ❤️

    May your unfailing love be my comfort.- Psalm 119:76 (NIV)

    I’m hearing a lot of confusion about love-hate in our news today. I’m asking myself many question and looking to the Author of Love for answers. I’m looking to the Holy Spirit to provide the change of ❤️’S and answers for my part.

    I’m looking for others to help forward this conversation.

  4. “How can we encourage someone today by showing God’s love”

    Maybe speaking a kind or encouraging word to someone? How about forgiving those who have wronged you, even if they haven’t asked for forgiveness? This may be a good one? ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Looking past others’ flaws, and realizing your flaws are much larger then theirs, and work diligently to correct your flaws, so you can maybe help them with their flaws?

    Would this list be a start of how to show God’s love?

    1. Tammy, did you really ask if your Bibical thoughts were a start?😔 I do find looking past the flaws of others very interesting. Work on mine…Does James 5:16 fit into this category? James uses the word sins, faults? Would flaws be different?

      1. “James 5:16New International Version (NIV)

        16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

        New International Version (NIV)” Yes, Sara I believe this scripture fits here. I like the end of the first sentence….”that you may be healed”. Good question “would flaws be different “🤔

      2. Flaws? faults, sin…I found flaws (synonyms) under faults and fault/flaw under sin. Lot of weaving here….Tammy, in thinking on this maybe it would depend on the type of things you had in mind when flaws appeared in your notes. We are finding even a local church does not agree on sin and surely The Church dosen’t.

        The part of your post that gave rise to my thoughts was flaws are correctable. 🤔 I thought about many things that could be a flaw in my character, personality etc. A culturally lead behavior that may be blind to the culture community but irritant or sin to another culture. This conversation is most interesting to me as I think it just might be a 🗝🔑🗝🔑 to division in our church, work, family and play. We might have discovered a peace pill💊💊💊💡💡💡 here.

        If you meditate🤔 on this chain of thought you might get a chill or fever depending on what you might 👀👀👀👀 I think it’s call illumination 🤔🙃💡💡💡💡💡

  5. Flaws, sins, faults! Look past others that tell me lies. Make promises they never keep? Never even apologize for not keeping or even acknowledge their flaw? Ok, cool, now work on mine, forgive them and make sure I don’t practice the same flaws I see in them. Now, how can I maybe help them?

    I did ask the same questions the Psalmist of 91:9-10 “Dors He who fashioned the ear not hear? Does He who formed the eye not see?…..

    I’m working on this larger than theirs Tammy speaks of….This is feeling like a seesaw to me. Help!

  6. Max Lucado (The Great House of God) “Remember, discipline should result in mercy, not misery. Some saints are awakened by a tap on the shoulder while others need a two-by-four to the head.”

  7. This am the Sunday School lesson where I attend was on Psalm 141 and I think some of what I got out of the lesson relates to the above discussion. In verse 5 David is asking: “Let the godly strike me! It will be a kindness! If they correct me, it is soothing medicine. Don’t let me refuse it. But I pray constantly against the
    wicked and their deeds.” He already had Nathan the prophet look at him (not past him) and confront him about his sin. Apparently he learned the benefit of it, painful though it was.
    He even asks the Lord: “Don’t let me drift toward evil or take part in acts of wickedness. Don’t let me share in the delicacies of those who do wrong.”(vs 4)

    I think there is a connection to this and what Sara writes above: “Flaws, sins, faults! Look past others that tell me lies.” and…
    “Some saints are awakened by a tap on the shoulder while others need a two-by-four to the head.”
