Praising God....

"It is good to sing praises unto our God (Psalm 1471)

It is bad when the tongue (that organ of praise) is

out of tune and jars by murmuring and discontent.

But it is a good thing to be thankful. It is good,

because this is all a creature can do to lift up God's name;

and it is good because it tends to make us good.

The more thankful we are, the more holy.

While we pay this tribute of praise,

our stock of grace increases.

In other debts, the more we pay, the less we have;

but the more we pay this debt of faithfulness,

the more grace we have."

~ Thomas Watson

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
