Praise the Lord ~ Hillsong United: Even When It Hurts

Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
~ Psalm 150

Though the clouds come and storms rage around you–Praise the Lord. Though life beats you up and tries to destroy you–Praise the Lord. Though the tides may wash over, bringing pain–Praise the Lord. Though grief overwhelms and sorrow surrounds–Praise the Lord. Though death may come and life just hurts–Praise the Lord. PRAISE be to God for he is working all things for your good, that you may obtain eternal life and righteousness! There is nothing in this world that can separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39), nothing that can cause him to leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8), nothing that can take His love away from you! Praise God!

Lord You Are

I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
May my meditation be sweet to Him;
I will be glad in the LORD.
May sinners be consumed from the earth, and the wicked no more.
Bless the LORD, O my soul!
Praise the LORD!
Psalm 104:33-35

Lord You Are

You are The Almighty God
Thinking of You takes my breath away

You are my Morning Star
Greeting me each day

You are my Bridegroom
The steady man in my life

You are my Creator
Breathing life into my very being

You are my Deliverer
The One who frees me from my sin

You are my Refuge
The One I run to when I need help

You are my Counselor
Giving advice to steer my path

You are my Shelter
My safety from the raging, chaotic world

You are my Door
Giving me a way to escape temptation

You are my Light
Shining so I won’t lose my way

You are my King
Ruler of my heart and soul

You are my Shield
Protecting me from life’s arrows

You are my Prince of Peace
Contentment for my heart, mind, and soul

You are my Hiding Place
Where I go to rest from the pain

You are my Friend
Always listening when I need to talk

You are my Father
Disciplining and directing me

You are my Love
To whom I give all of my heart

You are my Comfort
The warm place to lay my worries down

You are my Shepherd
Gently holding me in Your hands

You are my Lion
Fiercely protecting me from Satan’s snares

You are my Caddy
Carrying my burdens of shame and doubt

You are my Contractor
Building a home for me in the heavenly places

You are my Hope
Encouraging me when I stumble and fear

You are my Vine
Helping me reach out to others

You are my Beginning
Forming me in my mother’s womb

You are my End
Holding every day of my life in Your hands

You are my Fire
Igniting passion in my heart for more of You

You are my Savior
Giving the gift of eternal life

You are my Inspiration
Indeed You are my All in All

21 Days of Christmas

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
~ Isaiah 61:1-3 ~

Sent by the Father
This babe anointed and pure
Praise Him forever

Thank You Ever So

All my love and prayers for a wonderful Christmas season!

Rejoice always
Pray without ceasing
In everything give thanks
For this God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ~

Thank You Ever So

So thankful I am for all I have
A home filled with warmth
A cozy bed to snuggle in
Food to eat each and every day

So thankful I am for those in my life
Family I hold dear to my heart
Friends that lift me and love me no matter what
Acquaintances that make me smile each day

So thankful I am for blessings abounding
Water that runs at my beck and call
A car that gets me to and fro
Music that brings joy to me any day

So thankful I am for all I have
Blessed beyond measure
My cup overflows
Dear Lord, thank you ever so

Let the Seas Resound

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
Let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
~ 1 Chronicles 16:31-32

Let the Seas Resound

The seas resound with glory unto the Lord
Lifting up their voice with thunderous waves
Wide and vast their magnificence flows
A shimmering witness of God’s splendor
Brilliant crests of sapphire and cerulean
Crashing upon rocks and shore
Giving praise to the One True God
Joyously the waves ebb and flow
Singing praises to the Lord Almighty
A beautiful symphony of glistening admiration

Worship and Praise

Let them praise His name with the dance
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people
He will beautify the humble with salvation.
~ Psalm 149:3-4 ~

Worship and Praise

Why don’t you get it? How come you can’t see?
I sing to the Lord to show His love for me

You may think me weird; tell me I should sit down
Place my hands by my side and quit fooling around

What you don’t understand is I must praise and sing
For I am in God’s presence and that is all I can bring

He calls me to sing; to dance in the street
He smiles upon me when my worship is complete

He hears my songs of worship; they have meaning and heart
He understands my praise though indeed you may not

So before you judge me or tell me I need to sit down
Take a good look at your worship; what have you found?

Is your heart in your praise? Or is your worship mundane?
Is praise just another component of your Sunday routine?

Do you worship God earnestly? Do you let your love for God show?
Do you give all you have for the blessings He bestows?

Surrender your worship; it is a living sacrifice
Don’t worry what others think for your heart pays the price

Submit to the Lord; let Him lead your way
Let the Spirit consume you as you worship and praise

Naked and Unashamed

God is the God of provision. He gives to all things, great and small, exactly what they need when they need it. You may not have all that you want, but God will supply all you need when you depend on Him. Even the trees of the earth and birds of the air are taken care of, yet you, you were created in His image and are more valuable than any other living creature. He WILL provide when you place your trust in HIM.

“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? “And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. “But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ~ Matthew 33:25-34

Naked and Unashamed

Magnificent displays of endurance
Though the winds blow
And the lightning strike
Mighty and strong they stand

Their leaves may fall
Still they stretch their branches to the Lord
Naked and unashamed
Praising Him night and day

Even when clothed in robes of green
Their leaves turn toward the face of the Lord
Shouting God’s glory to the heavens and the earth
Revealing His eternal love

Their roots lie hidden from His view
Yet still the Lord feeds and nurtures them
Touching them deep within
Constantly helping them grow
