It Is Good to Sing Praises

Psalm 147:1 “Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.”

I am discovering there are benefits to blogging! With my thoughts turned each day to things that I might blog about, things that God has done, things that are praiseworthy, this blog is serving as a wonderful distraction from the daily cares that clamor for my attention. Instead of becoming so easily entangled with petty things that produce frustration, I am lifting my thoughts to praise Him, and He is changing my heart and thoughts to things higher and greater and more worthy. My thoughts move away from weighty burdens to joyful songs. Blogging is a great outlet to the demands and stresses of daily life!

I recognize my greatest attempts to praise Him are at best feeble efforts, and that this is a lofty goal to have a blog with a stated purpose to proclaim His praise! Yet He gives strength to the weak, and He has put a song in my mouth. He has given me joy, and I praise Him!
