Some days God gives us insight when we read His word. Other days He fills us with feelings. And some days we simply sit in awe of Him and all of His creation.
The love of God is amazing and meant to be shared.
Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.
Psalms 65:8 NLT
Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May your glory shine over all the earth.
Psalms 57:11 NLT
So, this wasn’t the post that I had planned for tonight.
I actually had planned to focus on the first chapter of Mark, however, I am fighting off a cold and my head is all wonky….so this is what you get 🙂
I found a great little meme-maker download that is so basic I think I could teach my cat how to use it. If anyone else likes putting words to pictures, you can go here and download this little program http://download.cnet.com/Free-Meme-Creator/3000-2192_4-75904184.html I have Norton 360 and it didn’t flag the download file and my computer is still working fine so I think it is virus free 🙂
Back to this little wordy photo…
Whenever I look up at the sky, it makes me acknowledge just how truly “small” I am. I love cloudy skies of all kinds. I love blue skies (though they make me sneeze horribly). I love puffy white clouds. But my favorite type of sky is the stormy sky full of power and emotion!
I see God in all types of skies. I see His creative hand in nature. And the best time to praise Him is when I’m out in the raw of His creation, underneath His expanse, feeling as small as ever. Yes, I praise God with hands held high, singing totally off-key with whatever song pops into my head (but only when I’m alone in nature LOL), and I praise Him quietly in my mind throughout the day when I see a dozen mini-miracles happen in my life.
I praise Him when I see terrible things on the news because as those things I see get darker and darker everyday, the brighter His light shines.
I praise Him when things are looking great in my life and I praise Him when things are looking bleak because I know He’s about to switch things up again!
Don’t wait for Sunday to Praise God~
Don’t wait for Sunday to think about our God~
Don’t wait for a commercialized holiday to celebrate our Lord and Savior~
Today is reason enough to praise our God and think about how AWESOME He is and celebrate our Lord and Savior!
Whether or not you believe animals have souls is not the purpose of this image.
This image was just so cute, I had to find a caption for it! I pictured Alvin, Simon, Theodore jumping up and down and screaming, “Pick me, pick me, pick me!” In their over-dramatic fashion. ~laughs~
Now I apologize if you don’t know who The Chipmunks were because I think you have been deprived of that privilege if that’s the case.
The fact is, many people are like that. They jump up and down (even if only on the inside) screaming to God, “Pick me, pick me, pick me” thinking that if they can just do one more thing, then God will accept them.
The truth is, our God has done it all for US. We can’t reach Him with anything we do, but He can and has reached down to us. We don’t have to struggle with the impossibility of building our own bridge to God. God has already given us a bridge to Him, the man, Jesus, who is the Christ, our Lord and Savior.
So the next time you raise up your hands to God, let it be in Praise! Lift up your hands and say thank You Lord as you accept the free gift He is offering.
Lift up your soul to the Lord!
