Matthew 25:44-45 (NIV)

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

With each passing year, words to songs heard as children keep resurfacing and becoming meaningful and relevant to my own life.  Life experiences cause us to understand the stories behind those songs.  Songs of overcoming, rejoicing and making a difference.   The lyrics  to this particular song caused me to search my own heart and question if my life has meaning and question, if my life is vain.

When Christ returns, I do not want to have, “I coulda, shoulda , woulda” on my lips.  It is my desire to maintain a sense of urgency so that I am able to hear the words “Well done…”

Making His praise glorious!

Lyrics to If I Can Help Somebody :

If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
If I can cheer somebody, with a word or song,
If I can show somebody, how they’re travelling wrong,
Then my living shall not be in vain.Chorus:
My living shall not be in vain,
Then my living shall not be in vain
If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
Then my living shall not be in vain.If I can do my duty, as a good man ought,
If I can bring back beauty, to a world up wrought,
If I can spread love’s message, as the Master taught,
Then my living shall not be in vain.

Psalm 150 (NIV)

 

1 Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord!

 

God has been so good all  I can do is have a praise party in His honor!  Glory to God for His goodness!  Everyone is invited and welcome!

Making His praise glorious!!!!

Cover of THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

Psalm 34:9 (MSG)9Worship God if you want the best; worship opens doors to all His goodness. Psalm 34:9 (NIV)

9 Fear the Lord,  you his holy people,  for those who fear Him lack nothing.

Psalm 34:9 (NKJV)

9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.

One text, three versions wonderful words.   I worship God out of love and have witnessed the miracle of open doors and windows when least expected.  I worship, not fear because more often than not my heart defines fear as a negative.

Yet, my adoration, praise, respect and worship are seamless because God’s abundance has already been shown in my life.  God is my Father  – my Father provides.  The Lord is my Shepherd – He guides and protects.  My love, praise and thanksgiving are my meager humble gifts for all He has done and continues to do in my life.  Though trials may come – I will continue to praise Him!

Making His praise glorious!

Newbridge Stained Glass - THE LION OF SAINT MARK

Revelation 19:6   Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.

Some days it isn’t the words but the songs that move and inspire me!  Today, I am awash with praise and joy of the Christmas season.  Today, words are just not enough!  As the text for today says “For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”  I invite the presence and praise of God to inhabit not just this day but every day!  Joy to the world!
