"Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant." (Psalm 135:3 KJV)

One of my all time "Favorite" things to do, is dim the lights in the living room, sit in my rocker recliner, put on praise and worship music and get totally lost in Jesus.

It is such an awesome time! No one there, except, the Lord and me. "He is altogether lovely!" (Song of Solomon 5:16 KJV)

Basking in His presence brings forth emotions like humility, thanksgiving, amazement, surrender, joy, and peace, to name a few.

During those precious moments when I get to behold specks of His majesty, holiness, truth, might, and glory, Scriptures will often come to my remembrance.

Through them I receive doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. (See
2 Timothy 3:16).

Poem titles, song lyrics, lessons, and story ideas have been known to spring forth while spending such blessed moments with the Lord. The poem "Praise The Lord" came from one such moment...

PRAISE THE LORD

I've come today to praise the Lord
I've come today to sing
I've come today to lift Him up
To let His praises ring

I need no special answered prayer
To spur me on to praise
My praise should come regardless
Of the problems faced each day

For God is not my servant
He's my Master, Lord, and King
And He says we ought to praise Him
To give thanks in everything

For God alone is worthy
He deserves our highest praise
And may His praise upon my lips
Be found there all my days

What a joy, delight, and privilege it is for us to praise the Lord, and we can do so anytime, anywhere, and any day!

Cheremiah
