Praise and Worship

The Lord has been teaching me
About Praise and Worship

I said in Oceans Part 2
That even though I sing
And have sung in various church choirs
Praise and Worship is something
That did not come easy for me

Only this morning as I got up out of bed
And looked out the window at the grey skies
I laughed and smiled as He spoke to me:
“The very stones will praise Me”

“I tell you that if these should keep silent,
 the stones would immediately cry out.”
(Luke 19:40 NKJV)
 
“I tell you, if these [people] keep silent,
the stones will cry out [in praise]!”
(Luke 19:40 AMP)

As I said, I may not naturally
FEEL or appreciate Praise and Worship songs
But when I look at nature, the world
The grass, the fields, trees, flowers
Even though they are NOT perfect
As He originally made them
But corrupted by the Fall

I can say “Thank you, Lord”
And it IS Praise and Worship to Him

When we appreciate ALL that is Him
From Him and His
When we are thankful for His creation
For ALL that He has provided

Our words of Thanksgiving
Are like songs of Praise and Worship
To His ears

So STOP and look
Open your eyes to SEE what He has given us all
And thank Him, Praise Him

It may be cloudy, like this morning
But it is still so, so beautiful
For He made it

And as you give thanks, you will be reminded
That even though He created all of this
For His pleasure
WE are His greatest treasure
For we are made in His very image

We get to enjoy His creation too
For He loves us
Is pleased with us
And loves us even more
When we love Him back
