Fourth Monday of Advent (2014 Year B)

I am quite sick today (horribly painful sinus swelling, but with luck, not an infection.) So I really need positivity. I found that in Psalm 96:10-13
Say among the nations, “The Lord is king!
    The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved.
    He will judge the peoples with equity.”
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
    let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
    let the field exult, and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
    before the Lord; for he is coming,
    for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
    and the peoples with his truth
There is more hope in Zephaniah 3:15 (partial):
The Lord has taken away the judgements against you,
And also Zephaniah 3:19 (although there should be no outcast and no shame in being disabled, there are and while I don't think we should wait on God to fix it, hearing that if we don't get there there is a plan B is hopeful.)
And I will save the lame
    and gather the outcast,
and I will change their shame into praise
    and renown in all the earth.
