Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord. – Psalm 150 (NIV)
Worship for me involves music. I have sung in choirs all my life. I played the organ in my home church in my teen years. Whether it’s “Amazing Grace,” “Be Thou My Vision” or one of the contemporary songs from the Brownesville Revival when I was saved, music leads my heart right into the Throne Room where I praise my Father God with tears flowing down my face!
There was a time in my life when I sang every day for my Father. It may have been in a car going to work or sitting on the back porch of my home, but we met every day. The Revival meetings stopped. It was time to “grow up” and look at my priorities.
I struggled for the next 20 years to put my personal house in order. Father God is faithful. He was there rejoicing when I put Him at the top of my list and spent time with Him. He was there waiting when I finally spoke to Him at the end of the day as I drifted off to sleep. And then when I had a heart attack, I was not alone! My husband was not alone in the waiting room. He is always trustworthy.
Our Father God is faithful! He is worthy of our love! Call out to Him and He is already there, guiding doctors and nurses, covering our fears with His Presence, His great, never-ending love!
Come now – take time to worship right now. Here are two of my favorite songs. Sing with your voice, with your heart, “Let everything that has breath” worship our LORD. He is worthy!
Be Thou my Vision written in 6-8th century Ireland. Translated in 1905 by Mary Elizabeth Byrne.
