399. My heart is ready
Let’s say together with all saints:
“My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and chant praise.” Psalm 57, verse 8
It’s a testimony to sing, to play hymns to God. We know it, when we’re helpful, when we adjust our life to that of God, our heart is in joy and it wants to “sing and play hymns”.
Let’s add this passage:
“I will praise you among the peoples, Lord; I will chant your praise among the nations.” Psalm 57, verse 10
When we love, we want to share the joy of love that we have and especially to mention the person who gives us this love. When we love a person, his name doesn’t bother us. The name of Jesus cannot displease us. Love does not displease.
With God, we want to give thanks (thank him) everywhere and at all times, since we know that Love comes from him. We want to share the joy of the Love we receive from God, because it makes us live and transforms us to the point of experiencing joy in abundance! The desire to love the neighbour of the Love of God is the sign that we understand the mission in which Jesus engages us.
