Make a Joyful Noise
“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.” - Psalm 100 ESV
I woke up early this morning and noticed one thing right off... The birds outside were loud. Chirping and singing and carrying on. High notes, low notes, some even a bit off key. It was like they were a bird choir or worship band singing their own kind of praise song.
Which of course got me thinking... and singing (or at least making a Joyful Noise)
Praise Him... For He is a God who saves... a God who heals... a God who loves!
Praise Him for who He is, for what He has done, what He is is doing, and what He is yet to do.
Praise Him for the day, for the night, for the good times and for the struggles.
Praise Him for wisdom and for the the lessons learned.
Praise Him for His guidance, His insight, His direction, His hope.
Praise Him for His creation, His imagination, His detail (It is Earth Day after all)
Praise Him for being there in our time of need.
Praise Him for being all we need.
Praise Him for His love, His patience, His forgiveness, His mercy, His grace.
Praise Him for the healing and salvation that only He brings and for the life that He gives.
Praise Him for He is good and His love endures forever.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord all the earth for He is worthy of our praise!
Keep the Faith... Carpe Diem
