I'm Still Praising the Lord

Extravagant Grace

I continue to participate in eLisa's Praise the Lord in this moment at Extravagant Grace.

Our praise challenge for this week is to do a search on the word praise on Bible Gateway.  The Scripture that spoke to my heart was:
Psalm 40:3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
We were also asked to post a praise song. Here's mine:



There's nothing like speaking the name of Jesus as I'm praising Him in this moment.  It helps me to keep my eyes on Him, especially when life isn't going along as I planned.  I remember that He sees all and knows all and best of all He is sovereign and has my best interests at heart.

Blessings and love,

Praising our God for Who He is, this is truly KEY! We can praise His name because of JESUS; the most powerful name as recorded in Philippians 2. He is Awesome God who knows all; and in that knowing He knows whether we will choose to obey or choose to disobey. As a disciple of God because of Jesus; we must remember to be disciplined. Being disciples of praising His name. When we complain we remain; when we praise God's name, we will be raised! Great post!

Beautiful! Love your heart and you!

Thanks for sharing this song - because there is NO name sweeter or more powerful than His name...and always lifts my spirits and me above anything I'm going through.

Hugs and blessings for your week! Focusing on praising Him through this season in life with you!

Dearest sister,

The Name of JESUS I speak with privilege, worship and great love. Nothing in the world like HIS Name....the Name of Jesus. Whether spoken in a shout of praise or in a whisper of worship -- His Name is GREAT!

Thank you for sharing!

So excited to see you in just a few days....love you!

No other name brings me peace when I whisper it - Jesus. No other name comforts me when I cry it - Jesus. And no other name gives me such joy as I shout the name of Jesus. Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this song, and as I listened to it this morning, it will remain with me today as I seek to praise Him.

Blessings and joy,
Laurie

I have been finding myself
singing this song daily for the
last few days. It brings such
peace and contentment. Your
first commenter and I agree in
that we praise Him for Who He
Is above all things and above
all He can do. He Who was and
is and is to come holds our
hearts in His merciful hands.
No better place to be than in
Him. I enjoyed this, Debbie.
Blessings & Hugs,
Sandy

Rejoicing with you in his goodness,

I love this song...as a teenager, I spoke the recitation while the youth choir sang the song...I was saved, but didn't really understand fully the meaning of the words I spoke...that has changed now, praise the Lord!

Denise said...
