Crew (48 of 86)Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.

Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    may I never forget the good things he does for me.

I give You thanks!

29 10 2014

DSCF0817I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods. I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.

Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord, for all of them will hear your words. Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways, for the glory of the Lord is very great. Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.

Don’t abandon me, for you made me.

Psalms 138 NLT

Praise in the Middle

Lifted handsPraise in the Middle

I will praise the Lord at all times.

I will constantly speak his praises.

I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart.

Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.

Psalm 34:1-3

Our God is Great and well-deserving of our continuous praise. I find my best days are when I start and finish the day with the Lord’s goodness on my heart and mind. With a song in my heart about His faithfulness, His greatness and His love for me, it is difficult to let discouragement in my day. Some days may be more difficult than others but when we surround ourselves with His word, His praises on our lips, His songs of praise, He is faithful to encourage our hearts. This is true even in the middle of great challenges. He is faithful to deliver us of fear and to provide the peace we need for blessed living. Bless His Holy Name.

With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God. I will give glory to your name forever, Psalm 86:12

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23

The Lord’s mercy is renewed each morning. We can start a new day with a fresh supply of mercy from our Heavenly Father.  I am so thankful for His mercy that allows me to experience His blessings even though I don’t deserve it.  I am so thankful for His grace that gives me unmerited access to be in relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  I thank and praise His name for His grace and His mercy that blanket my life in ways beyond my imagination. I am so humbled by His attention to my life.  We thank and praise Him for His mercy.  We bless His name for His grace.  The Lord is merciful, loving and kind and we are thankful.

Head to Toe

8 08 2014

O my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
don’t forget a single blessing!
Raise'm high He forgives your sins-every one.
He heals your diseases-every one.
He redeems you from hell-saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy-a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness-beauty eternal.
He renews your youth-you’re always young in his presence.
God makes everything come out right;
he puts victims back on their feet.
He showed Moses how he went about his work,
opened up his plans to all Israel.
God is sheer mercy and grace;
not easily angered, he’s rich in love.
He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
nor hold grudges forever.
He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.
As high as heaven is over the earth,
so strong is his love to those who fear him.
And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
he has separated us from our sins.
As parents feel for their children,
God feels for those who fear him.
He knows us inside and out,
keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
Men and women don’t live very long;
like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
leaving nothing to show they were here.
God’s love, though, is ever and always,
eternally present to all who fear him,
Making everything right for them and their children
as they follow his Covenant ways
and remember to do whatever he said.
God has set his throne in heaven;
he rules over us all. He’s the King!
So bless God, you angels,
ready and able to fly at his bidding,
quick to hear and do what he says.
Bless God, all you armies of angels,
alert to respond to whatever he wills.
Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are-
everything and everyone made by God.

And you, O my soul, bless God!

Psalm 103 MSG





You’re Amazing

18 07 2014

Crew (48 of 86)We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said, “What amazing things the LORD has done for them.”
Yes, the LORD has done amazing things for us! What joy

This song has been ringing in my heart and mind. The Lord is Amazing.
When I consider who He is……
And I think about all of His tremendous blessings to me…
He is amazing….

 

You’re amazing (You’re amazing)
You’re amazing (You’re amazing)
You’re amazing (You’re amazing)
So Amazing (So Amazing)
You Cause the Sun, the stars and Moon to shine,
I’m So Glad You’re Mine, Oh I’m Glad to say you’re mine.

We Stand (We Stand)
In Awe Of You (In Awe of You)
So Amazed (Amazed)
At the things you do (At the things You do)
You’re Holy (You’re Holy)
and Worthy is the Lamb (Worthy is the lamb)
Who was Slain (Who was slain) For Me (For Me)
