Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worship,
praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power,
praise him for his magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,
praise him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!
I know that God answers my prayers – every single one of them. Now, that is commitment at the highest level. And still there are times I am left saying “really Lord?”, but I am learning to respond with “Thank You Lord!”
“When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room; Now I’m in trouble again: grace me! Hear me!” Psalm 4:1 (The Message)
“I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.” ~Psalm 116:1-2 (NIV)
How could I do anything less than sign His praises and worship wholly my living God for all that He has already done. And, yet He will continue to bless my life – my life overflows with You LORD.
"Many are saying, "Who can show us anything good?
Let the light of your presence shine on us, O Lord. You put more joy in my heart than when their grain and new wine increase. I fall asleep in peace the moment I lie down because you alone, O LORD, enable me to live securely." ~Psalm 4:6-8 (GOD's Word Translation)
