I came a cross a beautiful verse today.
Psalm 89:15 in the ESV says this, “Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of Your face.”
GOD’S WORD Translation says, “Blessed are the people who know how to praise You. They walk in the light of Your presence, O LORD.”
The VOICE translates it like this, “How happy are those who have learned how to praise You; those who journey through life by the light of Your face.”
In Hebrew, the word for happiness or blessedness is used in this verse as an interjection: how happy!
The word used for know also means acknowledge, experience, clearly understand, to know assuredly, well aware…
How happy are those who know and experience the shouts of praise for You, LORD! How happy are those who journey through life in the Light of Yahweh’s presence!

“You’re the joy, joy, joy lighting my soul…
In the shadows,
In the sorrows,
In the desert,
When the pain hits,
You are constant,
You’re the song of my heart…”
