From The Word Of God

Psalm 33

1 Let the godly sing for joy to the LORD; it is fitting for the pure to praise Him. 2 Praise the LORD with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten stringed harp. 3 Sing a new song of praise to Him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. 4 For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does. 5 He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the LORD fills the earth. 6 The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. 7 He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. 8 Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him. 9 For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command. 10 The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes. 11 But the LORD's plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken. 12 What joy for the nation whose God is the LORD, whose people he has chosen as his inheritance. 13 The LORD looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. 14 From his throne he observes all who live on earth. 15 He made their hearts, so he understands everything they do. 16 The best~equipped army cannot save a king, nor is great strength enough to save a warrior. 17 Don't count on your warhorse to give you victory~for all its strength it cannot save you. 18 But the LORD watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. 19 He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. 20 We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. 22 Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone.


It's no wonder people have written complete praise songs out of the book of Psalm. Even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket, just think of the words you're offering up to Him in praise! We don't offer up sacrifices to the Lord anymore like they did back in the Old Testament days, but one thing we can always offer up to Him is our praise.

I thought I was going to start jumping in church yesterday~we sang some powerful worship songs. We sang "My God Is Mighty To Save" (SAVIOR, HE CAN MOVE THE MOUNTAINS! MY GOD IS MIGHTY TO SAVE, HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE! FOREVER! AUTHOR OF SALVATION! HE ROSE AND CONQUERED THE GRAVE! JESUS CONQUERED THE GRAVE!) How can you not jump or dance or run to that song???? We serve a God who moves mountains!!! Both literally and figuratively!!!

I am overflowing with His love this morning. He has given Himself to me in abundance, and I want the entire world to know. Anyone can have this! All He wants is for you to ask Him! The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords created this beautiful world that we live in. He is a complex God. Yet, it's all so simple. Ask, and you shall receive. That's it.

On a lighter note; Jonah thought he was THE BOMB getting dressed this morning. He looked ridiculously adorable in yesterday's outfit, so he wore it to school today. He actually said, "Mommy, do you think my friends will think I look good?" God love him. To which I answered, "Yes, of course they will, sweet baby."

Dear Heavenly Father, can you just freeze time? I would love to put in a request that we just stay at this phase in our life. I do not want my kids to get any bigger. I don't think my heart can handle it. I didn't want them to get to any milestone of their childhood, but You have brought me through this far, so please don't leave me now! Please and thank You.

Well, I must leave the wonderful world of blogging and go on to face the rest of my today. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look~see into my life. I hope you are blessed as a result, and I pray that you will feel the love of the Lord on you today.
