Psalms 138 I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise...
Have you ever stopped to take note of just how often and in what circumstances David praised the Lord? It seems like David praised through it all--the highs, the lows, the in-betweens. So if we follow David's example then whatever we're experiencing, we can (and should) still praise God--and not just for the present, but for things from the past and even things yet to come.
So how about a little praise-a-thon this weekend? We'll start with some of the same words David used in Psalm 138, but then let's fill in the blank with our own praise to the Lord. Be as broad or as specific, as big or as small, as you want. Our goal is just to let God know how much we love and appreciate Him. Here goes. You fill in the blank at the end.
I give You thanks and praise Your name for _______________.
Now I love to praise the Lord, so here are a couple of my praises today.
- I give You thanks and praise Your name for Christian friends who encourage me to stand strong.
- I give You thanks and praise Your name for my precious husband and every day you give us together.
Now it's your turn. Let the praises begin!! Tami W.
