It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, a reflection on Psalm 104:1-9, 24, 35c

Psalm 104 is an affirmation of God's greatness. As we read it, we can hear echoes of the creation story in Genesis. 

God is clothed in glory. God is the source and implementor of all. God has established the earth and done it in such a way that it shall never totter. God uses creation--the winds, the waters, the mountains and valleys.

In this week's passage from Job 38, God asks Job questions. We can imagine Job responding with portions of this psalm.
O Lord, how manifold are your works! 
In wisdom you have made them all, 
the earth is full of your creatures (24).
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
Praise the Lord
