Today’s art is a response to Psalm 66:
Bless our God, O peoples;
let the sound of his praise be heard,
who has kept our soul among the living
and has not let our feet slip.
For you, O God, have tested us;
you have tried us as silver is tried.
You brought us into the net;
you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
you let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through water;
yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance (verses 8-12 ESV.)
I was intrigued by the rough path —a crushing burden, a smelting heat, fire, water, a trapping net— all along the way to abundance.
The beginning of Psalm 66 offers shouts of JOY and a directive…
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!”
Today I encourage you to look at the rough spots a little differently—gratefully? Believe and take courage that HE will not let your foot slip and will keep your soul among the living!
