Praise God from Whom all blessings flow, Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above ye heav'nly host; Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost ~Thomas Ken 1674~ According to Dictionary.com Praise is the offering of grateful homage in words or song, as an act of worship: a hymn of praise to God. (they put God in lower case).
My heavenly Father is the Creator of this earth and all that is in, on and above it, and He most certainly deserves our Praise. In Jeremiah 1:5 The LORD told Jeremiah..."Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." If God knew Jeremiah before he was even formed in his mothers womb, then He knew you and I as well. That just astounds me to no end, to think that my Father knew the color of my hair, how my nose would turn out, and what color my eyes would be, before my parents even got their first look at me.
To take this word Praise even farther, I have to go into just a few things my Father has done for me in my 39 years. He has seen me through my toddler years, and my very tumultuous teen years, as well as my fiesty young adult years. In all those years He has brought me through a few near death experiences, 4 births, and even more, I am surviving my childrens teen years. (So far at least)
This does not take everything into account, but even with this shortened version of my trials and triumphs He is more than worthy to be Praised. I truly hope that each one of you will go back through your lives and give God the Praise He is do for all He has done for you in your lives. May He bless you today as you go on your way and even beyond. Head on over to tossing it out and see what you can find to Praise God about!
