Prepare My mouth to Sing your Praises

Day 15

I love me some good worship!  Worship songs are deep within me. From the time that I was first a Christian they have played a huge part in my life. They have gotten me through some tough days. I particularly love the ones that are scripture based because I feel as thought God's word continually plays in my mind and heart. 

 Here are a few lines of some of my favorites.

Great is thy faithfulness Lord unto me
It is well with my soul
How Great is our God
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever
Your loving kindness is better than life
I stand, I stand in awe of you
When you take your eyes off of your problems and start praising the Lord for who He is, your focus changes.
When I was in high school during the time that my parents were getting a divorce there were many people who couldn't understand how I could have so much joy in the midst of the pain I was feeling. I was a very young Christian but I remembered that someone had shared with me about Peter walking on the water. As long as he kept his eyes on Jesus he was fine and the moment he took his eyes off of Jesus and looked at the stormy sea he began to sink. In the midst of a difficult time I kept my eyes on Jesus. It is what got me through, kept me from sinking into despair and filled me with great joy!
The same is true when we sing praises to God.  Our eyes are lifted up and fixed on to Jesus and to who He is. When we look to Jesus first our eyes are not focused on our problems. Suddenly everything seems to be a little better for we are not alone.
It's when we put our eyes on our problems and start focusing on the things that are too difficult for us that we begin to sink spiritually. It is easy to begin to think that we are lost, that there is no hope when we see the large unsurpassable problem in front of us.

What are some of your favorites?

I love this worship song may it be a blessing to you today!
