Serving with Gladness

WHEN the Psalmist wrote, "Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing," he sounded a note of assurance and victory. To serve God "with gladness" and to "come before his presence with singing" is to claim the blessing which always awaits those who approach Him in sincerity and in truth.

Serving divine Principle with gladness of heart, regardless of whether or not all our problems are as yet solved, and regardless of the nature of these problems, is a wonderful means of inspiration. Such an attitude of thought helps to minimize to our mental gaze any difficulty with which we may seem to be confronted. Rejoicing in good, in the present fact of Love's perfect creation, uplifts thought and helps to dispel the dream of material sense. Even though we have not yet fully experienced it, we can always say, "I will rejoice in thy salvation."
