Praise Him!

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, and the great King above all gods.” Psalm 95:1-3

I was sitting outside in my front yard very early this morning. I was working on a Bible study and enjoying some quiet time with God. I could hear many sounds…sounds of the birds waking up and getting breakfast from the feeders, the hummingbirds fighting over territories with the clashing of their beaks against each other, and the bees buzzing among the flowers.

I even had a Momma Monarch butterfly come through to deposit some eggs on my milkweed plants…such a menagerie of God’s creation. I could not help but give our Creator God, the praise He deserves!

Out here in my garden you would not know I am less than 100 feet from a busy road. It is my oasis, my sanctuary.

I am thankful, content to just be…to be still and sit in the Presence of Majesty. His Majesty…as He is all around me, all around us. His fingerprints are everywhere. Remember that song? It is true.

When I am giving Him praise and shouting joyfully to His Name…the darkness runs. The forces of darkness have no place here.

We are called to worship Him. We cannot allow anyone or anything to silence us. Especially in these times of uncertainty & chaos. It is a time to praise The LORD, to lift the Name of YAHWEH ELOHIM!


Planned for God’s Pleasure

aruba sunset 3Welcome to DAY EIGHT!

This journey is about finding our purpose in life according to what God says.

Here is Day EIGHT of “The Purpose Driven Life” by Pastor Rick Warren

DAY EIGHT: THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE  (Taken directly from the book, page 68)

“TODAY’S FOCUS:  Planned for God’s Pleasure

POINT TO PONDER:  I was planned for God’s Pleasure

BIBLE VERSE:  ”The Lord takes pleasure in His people” Psalm 149:4a (TEV)

QUESTION TO PONDER:  What common task could I start doing as if I were doing it for Jesus?”

Here are the treasures I found from DAY EIGHT:

I was planned by God! He intentionally made me! He was happy the day I was born! He didn’t have to create me, but He chose to…with all my quirks,flaws and mistakes. No matter what I do, I am loved and wanted. However, I was not made to do anything I wanted to please only myself, I was made to bring pleasure to my Creator…to worship Him.

What is worship? So many people—so many different definitions of worship…music, Bible reading, sermon, a type of song, part of a church service, a ritual, and the list goes on.

Worship is far more than music. Worship is every part of the church service. If it is offered to God in spirit and truth, it is an act of worship.

Worship is not for your benefit. Our motive is to bring Glory to God. God is more concerned about the state of out heart. We should
offer sincere praise and heartfelt prayers.

Worship is not a part of your life, it IS your life. In 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV) it says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it ALL for the Glory of God.”

Everything can become worship when we dedicate it to God and preform it with an awareness of His Presence.

Ordinary become extraordinary with Jesus

Ordinary become extraordinary with Jesus

Back in Bible times, I don’t think there was anything much more ordinary than fishing, but fishing for Jesus…now that is exciting!

Cleaning the toilet will take on new meaning to me…What ordinary/mundane task will take on a new meaning to you?
