Attitude of Praise

From Psalm 111:1:  “Praise the LordI will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.”

Pessimistic and gloomy attitude

One negative brick follows another

Suffocating and negative self-talk

Sounding more like Eeyore’s little brother

 

Time for transforming callous attitude

With praise and thanksgiving, eyes upon God

His Grace offering truest Bread of Life

Believe, follow, accept His blessed rod

 

Breathing in our Lord’s trusted, living Word

Dropping negativity’s jagged sword

Accepting our Father’s mercy and love

Trading bitterness for His sweet accord

 

Learning from God’s Holy teachings and creeds

Feeling His just and faithful, love-filled works

Listening to each breath, His spoken Word

Maturing in faith’s righteous masterworks

 

Embracing God’s eternal covenant

Studying His Word, bearing full delight

Celebrating Him with salutations

Singing with attitude of praise, now right

From Psalm 111:10:  “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding.  His praise endures forever.”

Two wings are necessary to lift our souls toward God:  prayer and praise.  Prayer asks.  Praise accepts the answer.

From Hebrews 13:15-16:  “Through Him, then, let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess His name.  Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”

Daily Praise

From Psalm 145:21:  “My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.”

Stepping forward, showing gratitude

Honoring His Holy righteousness

Extolling His patient fortitude

 

Sending forth His Word, filled with goodness

Guiding lives from high Heaven above

Creating breathtaking tranquility

Abounding with lasting, steadfast love

 

Proclaiming His infinite greatness

Praying to the Father, praise His name

From Galatians 5:22-24:  “By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  There is no law against such things.  And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
