Psalm 31:1 "I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth."Whoa. David sets a high standard here. "All times" and "continually". I don't give enough thought, praise, worship, acknowledgment, or discussion. I was trying to imagine what my life would look like if His praises were really continually on my lips. Why aren't they?
I serve an infinite God. So huge that I can't wrap my mind around even the tiniest portion of Him. He is too big for me. The stars bow before Him and the earth is His footstool. I am His servant, worthy of death, yet He brought me into the light and gave me life. He is my Rock and Shield. A Strong Tower when I am afraid. He is my Comforter. He is the Lover of my soul, who loves me with an intimate, unending love - the true kind that lasts forever. He brings me joy in the simple things of life. He is that constant friend that I can talk to when I wiping down tables at Chick-Fil-A. No matter where I am, He is. He always listens. He is not the type of friend that doesn't understand. When I cry, He does too, because He knows what I'm going through. He knows because He suffered the temptations and bore my sin, as His OWN, on the cross. When I laugh, I laugh with His joy, because it is firmly planted in everything I do.When I sleep, He doesn't - because He is always watching out for me. When I throw up half-hearted prayers, He still hears. when I fail Him for the 1,000,000th time, He still forgives me and takes me back into His arms.
What wondrous love is this! Why am I not going crazy at the magnitude of it all and screaming it from the roof-tops? Lord, forgive me for taking Your truly-awesomeness lightly!
Psalm 34:3 "Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together!"I was too tired to come up with a P31W post tonight - so I just went on a little rant - but be expecting one in the near future. :)
