God’s Joyous Redemption

Psalm 126

1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us,
and we rejoiced.
4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the watercourses in the Negeb.
5 May those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping,
bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
carrying their sheaves.”  NRSV

Redemption is so, so sweet whether its a moment in ancient Israel’s history or a personal experience in one’s life today. God’s redemptive love is time of joyous emotional harvest whenever it comes. Thanks be to God!

Be a blessing to someone today!
