“To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul” [Psalm 25:1]
How do you lift your soul up to God? Do you set aside time as you begin your day or maybe as you end your day or even more frequently? The rhythm of my daily life begins and ends with lifting up my soul to God. I also do so every time I eat or when something in nature draws my attention. I have been known to spontaneously blurt out loud, “O Lord, our Sovereign how majestic is your name in all the earth,” when the beauty of our natural world overwhelms me. What does it mean for you to lift up your soul to God? Lifting up my soul for me means I acknowledge that God is with me and that I am open to transformation. Given the rush of my days, I set aside times intentionally to remember I am one of God’s beloved daughters. I lift up my soul trusting that I will taste and see that the Lord is indeed good.
Loving God, I thank you for your steadfast presence in all of creation. In the rush of my days, help me to be present to you. To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. Amen.
