O give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the people.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonderful acts and devoutly praise them.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek and require the LORD [as their most essential need] rejoice (Psalms 105:1-3).
Giving praise to G_d in every season is our utmost privilege. Singing praise when life is at its best and the wind is at our back is easy because “we have nothing to complain about” but let the tide turn and the same ground that once grew great produce now becomes feral and the praise has a way of leaking from our lives. When we complain, we surrender the joy that should be ours because we let the famine steal the joy from our lives as surely as it destroys the world.
Help me today to honor you in all that do. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you. When the storms come, help me find shelter in you like the Prophet Elija. Please watch over my family and families today in all things may I sing your praise.
