Praise the LORD Always!!

You know we are always thanking God for this and for that, but how often are we just Praising HIM. Singing His praises, and just getting in complete worship over HIM. Just LOVING HIM the way He tells us to Love each other. What about HIM?

Today lets just sing His praises all day, every time you stop, take a minute and think how can I praise my GOD right now?

You have probably all heard the chorus: We love you LORD, and we lift our voice to worship you, oh my soul rejoice. Take joy my king, in what you hear. Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear.

Think about that for just a moment. How often does God get to hear a sweet sweet sound? And then how often does He hear a grumbling, fighting, vulgar sounds? You know when we hear someone cursing, or swearing, and taking the Lords name in vain, we want to just cringe. But, just think we only hear that one person (or ourself) at that time, when the LORD has to listen to that all day long. We can remove ourselves from having to hear it, but how can He, when He is always present with us.

Next time, you lose your temper about something and you are getting ready to swear, argue, complain, or just say mean things, stop and think. My God has to hear this, and this is not a sweet sweet sound to His ear. How is this praising my LORD. That is why I say, praise Him and sing unto Him sweet songs, so that maybe we can drown out some of the ugliness of the world.

God has compassion on us, lets show Him some compassion and change the sounds He has to listen to.

PS 113....Praise, O servants of the LORD, Praise the name of the LORD! Blessed be the name of the LORD, from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun, to its going down, the LORD's name is to be praised.
The LORD is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our GOD, who dwells on high, Who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes, with the princes of His people. He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children.
Praise the LORD!.....................

We love you Lord, and we do lift our voices, not for asking of anything but just to praise you today. AMEN!

And we wish you a Happy Birthday during this season. What better gift than to give Him your praises, and truly worship Him with LOVE.
