Saturday psalm and praise! - Lord I lift your name on high!

Lord I Lift Your Name On HighWords & Music by Rick Founds
Verse:Lord, I liftYour name on high
Lord, I love to sing Your praises
I'm so glad You're in my life
I'm so glad You came to save us
Chorus:You came from heaven to earth
To show the way
From the earth to the cross
My debt to pay
From the cross to the grave
From the grave to the sky
Lord, I lift Your name on high

This song says it all. God grace and love is the reason I'm here today and knowing that how can we not lift up our hands in praise to the Lord.

God bless,

Saturday Psalm and Praise!

Psalm 119 (New International Version)
Psalm 119
verses 1 - 16
' Aleph 1 [a] Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.
3 They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways.
4 You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.
5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!
6 Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.
8 I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.
b Beth 9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
g Gimel

Saturday psalm and praise!

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain -Mercy me excrept from Bring the rain.

This song always touches me, because it truly expresses my walk in christ and reminds me that in everything I do that it's for the Lord. I remember a time in my life when eveything seemed out of control and no matter what I did things seemed to spiral even more into choas. I felt raw and like an open wound, but I now a relish that time in my life because thats when I got it. I realized the need for God in my life and instead of trying everything I could to fix any problem that anyone around me had I turned to the Lord and I've never turned back. I've never regretted the pain it took to get me there. So the Lines "And I know there'll be days when this life brings me pain But if that's what it takes to praise you Jesus bring the rain really hits home for me. Though things are hard sometimes, I'm never alone I can always turn to the Lord and like this song I say Jesus bring the rain because knowing that there is nothing I can't do with my God.
C.S. Lewis has said “We're not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be” What do you think? Have You ever been afraid because of thoughts like this? Remember God has promised never to leave us, So take comfort, and remember this as you face each new trial with him. Check out this if you want to join the Saturday psalm and praise .
