Worthy of Praise

Each day is a gift and a blessing. Yet I don't always believe that in the moments that make up the day, the weeks, the months. The years keep flying by and now that I am 30 I find myself more aware of how precious and fleeting life is. God never ceases to amaze me! Whenever I stop looking at myself and this world around me and start looking up to the Creator, I am filled with a sense of awe and wonder. God is so good, so real, so powerful and completely in control even as things fall apart here in this country and around the world. I know His Spirit is living in me and His grace is the reason I make it from day to day with the trials that He has allowed to be a part of my life right now. His mercies are new every morning, great is his faithfulness! (Lam. 3:23) His love never fails and He is so worthy of praise. 

I have a Casting Crowns CD playing in my car right now. The song "Life of Praise" came on and I completely lost myself in praise to my Savior. Here are just some of the words:

But I'll praise You for You are holy Lord
And I life my hands but You are worthy of so much more 

For You are awesome God of the nations
Lion of Judah, Rock of Ages
Alpha, Omega, Worthy of all praise
More than the hands I raise
I'll live a life of praise

That is what He created us to do-to worship Him and to glorify His name! He is worthy of so much more than I can give Him, but what He wants is me. He sees my heart and still loves me. God gave me everything-His precious, only Son-to die on the cross for my sins-so that I could spend eternity with Him. I'll live a life of praise through the power of His Spirit who lives in me! If you want to listen to the song, I posted a video below from Youtube.
