Every morning the rule in the car on the way school is worship music only. Every one knows. So, since Passion 2012 came out in March, that’s what we’ve been listening to. LOVE IT! So the song, 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman was playing and it got me thinking. We have about a 35 minute drive to school and we leave about 6:30am so the sun is coming as we drive. Each morning it gives me time to reflect on the greatness of our Lord. So the song talks about blessing the Lord and as the sun comes up worshiping Him. It gives attributes of the Lord such as compassion and slow to anger. The the song makes a statement about still worshiping the Lord when the sun sets. How often do I get impatient, frustrated or just irritated with life during the day and forget to continue to praise the Lord? Well, often enough. When life doesn’t turn out the way you think or the Lord is going along with YOUR plans. So, this morning, I resign myself (again) to continue to praise Him. From sunrise to sunset.
Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
Psalm 63: 3-4
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will life up my hands.
