it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
play skillfully, and shout for joy.
he is faithful in all he does.
the earth is full of his unfailing love.
their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
he puts the deep into storehouses.
let all the people of the world revere him.
he commanded, and it stood firm.
When my daughter had cancer, we stopped going to church and we stopped getting together with a lot of people, and we stopped traveling to visit my family who lived 4 hours away. We did all of those things because of the risk of germs that could have dramatically impacted our daughter's health while she was on chemotherapy.
Why did we do this?
HE IS RIGHT AND TRUE AND FAITHFUL IN ALL HE DOES.
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.
We will praise Him and smile even when there is pain in our life.
We will praise Him and rejoice, even when the world might look at us and say, "Look at what they are doing at a time like THIS."
We will praise Him because He has a future-world for us that makes this world seem like seem as important as dust on a scale...
We will praise Him for what He has done, is doing, and will do tomorrow...
