9 Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
10 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
11 Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
For just a bit I focused on whether the things He does for us should be told to all or should just be saved for private conversations with the Lord. Scripture after scripture revealed to me that we were to tell and tell ALL DAY LONG according to Ps. 71. I love this scripture above as well especially verse 8 "make known among the nations what he has done". That 'make known' is the word 'yada'. That is the discern, perceive, know deep down in your heart - that is what i like to call it. And because of that I think in today's time it is appropriate and effective to 'yada' what He has done in our lives!! I will shout it out - I can't help but to!
Lord Jesus - as verse 9 also reminds me I will tell of all Your wonderful acts - all day long! I will tweet, I will FB, I will blog, I will scream, I will pray to You, and I will speak whenever given the opportunity! Even though my motives are not always as pure as they ought to be I will still tell of what you have done in my life and the lives of others as well. Jesus - i do love you so much. I am not near as committed to you as I want to be. I am not always sure the things I should be doing are the things You want me doing. I want to follow your lead. I want to love you more!!! I want to shout out your goodness!! Father, forgive my unfaithfulness. Forgive my lack of trust. Forgive me impatience. Forgive my mouth. Forgive my thoughts. Lord, clean me out and that too I will shout about!! Because of your light within me, draw others to you. use me in whatever way possible!! I want to shout to all the nations and let them yada you!!!
Thank you Lord - Amen!
Here is the first review of my book that just came out... This person just made my day, or week, or maybe even month!
Hey! Just finished your book! Very, very good! I'm so impressed! Saw myself in EVERY chapter. Also in every chapter, you were talking to me. I especially enjoyed the chapter "Up Close and Personal with God". Or maybe I should say, I DIDN'T enjoy it, as that is the one I have the biggest problem and most work to do. The one I was most convicted by.
Also, thank you for the paragraph on page 120-121 about not losing hope/take heart regarding praying for loved ones for salvation. Yes, I know that, but sometimes the encouragement is so welcome and good to hear.
Anyway, thanks for writing it, maybe it was for no one but me!
