Praise & Worship

I made it to church this Sabbath! Yay for me =D I went mainly for the music. The music at All Nations SDA is pretty much awesome. The opening hymn, Blessed Assurance, was led by an enthusiastic elder. The congregation stood and we all sang Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! Oh what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God. Born of His spirit, washed in His blood! While we sang, I looked around at the other people. Hands were raised in praise and there were smiles everywhere. The leading elder directed the congregation with so much feeling. We were all there together, singing praises to God. This feeling of togetherness and peace continued throughout the service and was stirred up again in praise and worship.

Every so often, when it's that song, or we've gone through that experience, or we recognize that blessing, the songs lift us up. I think about how angels marvel at our ability to praise God like we can. Songs like 'Moving Forward' cant possibly touch them like it touches us. We sing You make all thing new, yes You make all things new, and we know how God has made us new. We know how God has blessed and reformed our lives. How wonderful is it to know that our songs of thanksgiving are question marks to angels. How beautiful!

Jehovah Jireh, My Provider. We worship Your majesty, You're everything to me!
