Today’s thought – Praise Him!

july 23 004Pineapple blossom, looks like a lily to me.

Good Morning

1Timothy 1:17
To the King that rules forever,
who will never die,
who cannot be see,
the only God,
be honor and glory forever and ever.NCV

The whole purpose of coming before the King is to praise Him,
to live in recognition of his splendor.
Praise —
lifting up our hearts and hands,
exulting with our voices,
singing his praises —
is the occupation of those who dwell in the kingdom.

Praise is the highest occupation of any being.
What happens when we praise the Father?
We reestablish the proper chain of command;
we recognize that the King is on the throne and
that He has saved His people.

Walking with the Savior, Max Lucado

1Timothy 1:17
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

July 20, Today’s thought — Hallelujah

Buster hiding in a basket.

Good Morning

For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth:
thou art exalted far above all gods.
Ye that love the LORD, hate evil:
he preserveth the souls of his saints;
he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
Light is sown for the righteous,
and gladness for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous;
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Psalm 97:9-12

HALLELUJAH

High praises give to the Lord Almighty,
Ascribe to His name power and majesty.
Lift up your voices to praise the Lord,
Loud shouts of joyful songs to God adored.
Exalt Him for He alone is holy,
Let all the people tell of His grace and glory.
Uplift in loud praise His great salvation,
Justice and mercy to every nation.
All praises be given for He has done great things,
Hear ‘Hallelujahs’ to the King of kings. unknown

Trust God for your day . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

On My Mind — Sunflowers

On my Mind is a Friday picture post hosted by Rhonda at  Down to Earth. Rhonda lives in Australia, I enjoy learning of the differences and of the things that are exactly the same on both sides of the earth.

Amongst the squash in the Farmer’s Garden,
He plants sunflowers for his daughters and me.

POEM TO A SUNFLOWER

I see you there in glory shining bright,
Following the sun and its path of light.
Standing tall above all others in the field,
You grow, conquer, and do not yield.

The little birds take great delight
In playing round you, from day to night.
With your petals of yellow and leaves of green
How very easily you are seen.

But there is more to you than first sight,
More than beauty and grander to delight.
Every beautiful aspect that appears,
Gives praise to the Father dear.

He made you a part of creation,
And you praise him in glorious celebration!
The beauty that within you is expressed,
Gives testimony to his greatness.

Sunflower, how I long to be like you!
Glorifying God in all I do.
Following the Son and His path of light,
To worship Him in His glory shining bright.

I can learn from you, my friend,
With every breath, praise to God, I might send.
With all of his creation telling the story,
Might I, with you, proclaim His glory.
