Release A Praise!

                

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. 3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. (Psalm 34)

The Lord deserves your praise. Psalm 34:1 says that  “I will bless the Lord at all times.”   As you read this scripture, place emphasis on the words “at all times”. The Lord deserves to hear you praise Him and He deserves to see you praise Him. In fact, there should be times when you allow others to hear and see you praise Him.  You should not get in the habit of limiting your time of praise to when He blesses you.  You should praise Him when you are hurt and broken in spirit. Praising Him during your times of struggle and disappointment shows you have faith that He is going to work things out. You should give Him advance praise because you trust that He will restore you from your brokenness.   His praise should continually be in your mouth!  No matter what season you are in right now, you should release a praise!

Dear Lord, I praise Your holy name. I thank You for all You have done for me and I thank You for what You are going to do for me. Lord, You are strong and You are mighty!  I thank You for being so gracious and merciful to me.  I delight, Dear Lord, in being Your child and I thank You for keeping me and caring for me.  I sing and shout praises unto You, Heavenly Father, just for who You are. You are great and You are wonderful. Lord, I release this prayer of praise to You for You truly have been good to me!  In the name of Jesus, I pray and say Amen!

Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalm 150:6)

Give Thanks To The ONE!

Give thanks to the One who created you

27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them. (Genesis 1)

Give thanks to the One who loves you

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,

that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3)

Give thanks to the One who sustains you

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. (Psalm 23)

Give thanks to the One who forgives you

34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. (Luke 23)

Give thanks to the One who helps you

2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121)

Give thanks to the One who strengthens you

1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in  time of trouble. (Psalm 46)

Give thanks to the One who died for you

10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep,

we may live together with him. (  1 Thessalonians 5)

***************************

Dear Heavenly Father, today and everyday,we want to thank You!   We thank You for your love.  We thank You for your grace and  your mercy. We thank you for your faithfulness to us even when our faithfulness to You falls short.   And Dear Lord,  we most certainly want to thank you for Jesus! (For where would we be had He not died for our sins?)  Dear Lord, we thank You for this day of Thanksgiving.  In the sweet and precious name of  Jesus, Amen!

This is a reblog from last year! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Broken-2b-Restored

That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,

and tell of all thy wondrous works.  Psalm 26:7

Whatever God has brought you through, isn’t that enough just to say, Thank you!, Lord? With each new day, we are given new chances, new opportunities and new assignments in life.  When we could have given up and thrown in the towel, something was pulling at us to keep going. That was God’s grace and His mercy!

Have you overcome addiction or depression?

Be thankful!

Have you survived an abusive relationship?

Be thankful!

Have you been able to restore a family relationship that was broken?

Be thankful!

Have you been healed from a sickness that left your doctors in awe?

Be thankful!

Does your heart still ache because of the death of  a loved one?

Be thankful for the time you had with them and the precious memories!

Have you been forgiven…

Celebrate With Me!

 I am praising God today for my life!

  I am celebrating me because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

I am celebrating me because of the life He has given me.

I am celebrating me because I am blessed with family and friends.

I am celebrating me because of the gifts He has given me!

I am celebrating me because He has always taken care of me.

I am celebrating me because He is my Father and I am His daughter!

I am celebrating me because of Jesus!

I am celebrating me because even in my brokenness,

He loved me enough to restore me!

This is the day the Lord has made;

Celebrate with me!
