Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
God leaves behind the gleanings from his harvest on my rainy days. The roses shimmering with
the raindrops remind me to not just get through my difficulties but to praise Him!
That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other Isaiah 45:6
In the moment of deepest worship when no words can express the glory of God’s presence we come to the truth at the sun’s rising that there is no one else besides Him!
Special moments from youth group singing at nursing home
…and all the trees of the field will clap their hands Isaiah 52:12
Don’t you know it’s time to praise the Lord?
In the sanctuary of His Holy Spirit
So put your mind on Him
And let His praise begin
And the glory of the Lord will fill this place
As the seasons change most trees put away their Summer clothing and dress in their Fall colors. In our region, however there are some trees, most notably the Pin Oaks, that insist on holding back a third of their dry brown leaves all through the Winter. They may be pretending it is still Summer but they aren’t fooling anyone! In our own lives as well, when the season changes we can hold back and complain or we can remember that it is always time to praise the Lord! We can put away our Summer clothing and dress with the brief brighter colors of Fall, or we can hold onto our brown leaves complaining all through the Winter. Praise helps us allow the changes to come giving a place for God’s glory to be seen as a reflection of heaven even as Summer fades and frost of Fall comes sweeping by.
Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise
Our poppies just couldn’t confine themselves to the garden, they spread their seeds far and wide and discovered the freedom of the fields!
Celebrating Easter across languages, cultures and races. Nothing is more precious than brothers from everywhere worshiping Jesus together!
