Praise

All too often I get caught up in all of the pitfalls that life throws our way.  Even if I keep my eyes on Christ through them all and charge through them faithfully for Him, I often forget to do one thing.  I thank Him for his faithfulness to me.  I acknowledge His Lordship, yet I forget to give my all.  I forget the most important part of it all and that is to shower Him with my love openly.

I usually observe in church for a number of reasons.  It isn’t terribly often that I completely let my mind, heart, and soul go to completely engage in worship for a number of reasons.  I’m fairly stoic so it’s challenging to let myself go, but I find with the following song that I do very easily.

Bless the lord oh my soul

Oh my soul

Worship his holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I worship your holy name

The sun comes up

It’s a new day dawning

It’s time to sing your song again

What ever may pass and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes

This is how we should start our day, by praising God for the blessing of life renewed every time we wake.  When I go for a morning run, I usually leave before the sun rises and it rises while I run.  To watch creation wake up all around me as I pass by is refreshing and invigorating.  If I were only to wake up every morning and have my first thoughts be of praising God rather than of the day ahead, how much better my outlook on life each day would be.  Further, I should praise in all circumstances, good, bad, and otherwise.  If I should trip and fall, I should praise God.

Bless the lord oh my soul

Oh my soul

Worship his holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I worship your holy name

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger

Your name is great and your heart is kind

For all your goodness i will keep on singing

10,000 reasons for my heart to find

Mercy, grace, redemption, salvation… all unearned, all undeserved, yet all given freely and without hesitation out of love.

Bless the lord oh my soul

Oh my soul

Worship his holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I worship your holy name

And on that day when my strength is failing

The end draws near and my time has come

Still my soul will sing your praise unending

10,000 years and then forever more

And this is the crux of it… that freedom through the blood of Christ, however undeserved, is given as a gift, so that I can freely praise and worship the Lord.

What chains can hold me down if I live my life in freedom, in praise to the One who made me, and without doubt or fear?  This freedom on Earth is just a taste of what it truly feels like too I imagine…
