“Awake, my glory (my inner self); awake, harp and lyre! I will awake right early [I will awaken the dawn]”! (Psalms 57: 8, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)
We may be morning people, or we may not. We may find this kind of admonition to begin our day with praise and song, early and ready, a difficult one.
But what the psalmist is truly inviting us to do is to embrace the glory within us. It isn’t about being a perfect human on a perfect schedule, always good to go. What it is about is pausing to consciously celebrate your inner self, the reality of who you are, that one that is special to God, worthy, and able to realize this Truth.
God has made us to reflect His own nature, that which is all-loving, whole, right, good, powerful. We can wake up to the glory of His qualities and know that they are ours to claim and express. We can stir ourselves to see beyond the material perception of things, to the spiritual idea that God has made. We can delight in recognizing that as we are willing to discover who God made us to be, our spiritual completeness and loveliness, we can experience contentment and expectation. And so our very lives become songs of gratitude to God, to Love, and to Life!
