blessed

I love Psalm 84.  I love to read this Psalm when I feel that I am forgetting how beautiful and wonderful it is to be with God.  When I just want to emotionally draw closer and remember that God is good.

How lovely is your dwelling place, 
Lord Almighty! 
My soul yearns, even faints, 
for the courts of the Lord
my heart and my flesh cry out 
for the living God. 
Even the sparrow has found a home, 
and the swallow a nest for herself, 
where she may have her young— 
a place near your altar, 
LordAlmighty, my King and my God. 
Blessed are those who dwell in your house; 
they are ever praising you.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you, 
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. 
As they pass through the Valley of Baka, 
they make it a place of springs; 
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength, 
till each appears before God in Zion. 
Hear my prayer, LordGod Almighty; 
listen to me, God of Jacob. 
Look on our shield, O God; 
look with favor on your anointed one. 
Better is one day in your courts 
than a thousand elsewhere; 
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God 
than dwell in the tents of the wicked. 
For the LordGod is a sun and shield; 
the Lordbestows favor and honor; 
no good thing does he withhold 
from those whose walk is blameless. 
LordAlmighty, 
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
