This morning, I drew this promise. It reminded me of a lot of things in my past.
“I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” -Psalm 34:1
I remember a time when I was about four years old. We lived in Oklahoma, and attended a predominately African-American church. There was an old gentleman that would get up and pray. He always started his prayers out by saying, “I just wanna thank ya Jesus for waking me up this morning…”
That is something that if I live to be a hundred years old, I will NEVER forget. Sometimes we forget that it IS God Almighty that wakes us up in the morning…and protects us all day long!
In my much later years, we (my husband and I) once again attended an African-American church. We used to sing a song there that I’m sure was based on the above Scripture. It went like this:
“I will bless the Lord at all times…for He’s good…. He’s good…He’s good…SO good! So I will bless the Lord at ALL times…for He’s good!”
Not sure who wrote that song…but it always blessed my heart, and reminded me of the old gentleman who thanked God for waking him up!
Let’s bless the Lord at ALL times…for HE IS GOOD!
