Sing Your Praises

I've got a boy that sings in the shower.  He sings doing his homework. He sings in the car.  He claps and stomps and claps and jumps and just generally makes noise.

And that's ok.  In fact, it's even Biblical- Psalm 100:

"Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!" Sometimes I don't really like that noise, but I know that he can't contain it.  And the Bible said that if we didn't rejoice, the rocks will surely cry out.  No danger of the rocks crying out for Caleb's rejoicinig.  

"Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!"   Be glad that we can serve Him, and serve others.  Be happy.  Let others know we're glad.  Sing in His presence.  It might be at home, in the shower, in church, or in the car.  It might be walking on your treadmill.  Sometimes, you feel so good your heart just sings... that's God.

" Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture." He is God.  There is none other.  He knit us together and He has a plan and we have a future and a hope.  He is God. He is sovereign.  He is in control. He works all things for good.  We are His people, chosen, given the spirit of adoption to cry Abba, Father.  He cares for us as the Good Shepherd. He provided for our needs and protects us from the wolves that prowl. 

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!" Enter His presence with thanksgiving. Be grateful for all things. Bless His name.  Bless You, Lord. 

"For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations."
HE.  IS.  GOOD.  His love endures forever. It is steadfast, never changing, never wavering.  He is faithful, and we see it every day, from generation to generation.

He is God.  And He is good. And maybe we all need to sing just a little bit more =)
