it is good to praise The Lord and make music to Your name, O Most High,
proclaiming Your love in the morning and Your faithfulness at night,
to the music if a ten-stringed lyre and the melody of a harp.
For You make me glad by Your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what Your hands have done.
How great are Your works, Lord, how profound are your thoughts!
Verse 8: But You, Lord, are exalted forever!
God created us to worship Him, to give Him glory, to sing His praise.
What’s your song today?

Wonderful Wednesday Worship
Beautiful Day by Jamie Grace
“About to get my worship on…
No room for worry…
No room for doubt…
I can never get enough of You…”

me us to worship Him; to live a holy life that is a living sacrifice to Him —> that is true and proper worship
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. -Romans 12:1
If when I am stressing and focused on everything and everyone but God then my life goes off-kilter (dare I say it and admit, I’m living in the flesh, in sin) and I am not living the life that Jesus came and died to give me: the free abundant glorious life that He provides ME (really, me?)
So I pulled out a book I started reading a while ago (because I’m stressed out with life); Tracie Miles, author of Stressed Less Living, says “I knew that something had to change; and through God’s intervention I gradually came to understand that what had to change … was me. … instead [I] began pondering that hard question: “What was wrong with me?” (instead of what’s wrong with everyone/thing else, if others would just… then I wouldn’t be …)
Here’s some things I know to be true for me:
my focus is I let myself get easily distracted
- I’ve focused on the negatives too much lately
- I’m struggling to find things to be thankful for (
most likely definitely because of distractions and negatives)
Here’s what I want (please feel free to pray for me, comment and I will pray for you too)
How will I be doing this:
- scheduling my time and setting alarms on my phone (like this post on setting Scripture alarms from HelloMornings)
- being intentional in being still and quiet listening for God to speak to me (like Heather at My Melodious Heart is talking about Expectantly Listening)
- worshiping through music
- reading the following:
- Stressed Less Living by Tracie Miles
- I Used to Be So Organized by Glynnis Whitwer and doing the book study here: http://www.theconfidentmom.com/10/optimum-mom/i-used-to-be-so-organized-online-book-study/
feel free to join me as I continue to seek how to worship God in this broken vessel that He has redeemed and calls His precious daughter
Simply this today: All I Can Do (is say thank you) -Mikeschair
And this verse:
For those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. -Proverbs 11:25
A couple favorite worship artists who are on my “wants” list:
Who are you favorites?
some days….you just don’t know what to say, so say Jesus, there’s power in the name, JESUS
(Say The Name – Martha Munizzi)
what I’ll be focusing on and listening to today:
If worship is my response to God, giving thanks is part of worship. I am called to give thanks in ALL things:
Thanking Him for the opportunities to grow in patience, grace, and peace. Thanking Him for the storm so the peace and calm will be that much sweeter. Thanking Him for the opportunity to bless my family with the daily mundane tasks that need to be done (and doing it without grumbling or complaining).
Have a wonderfully blessed day worshipping the ONE TRUE GOD
