Just Because!

Just a brief thought today, but one I hope speaks to you!  Psalm 148:5 proclaims: “Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created.”


Have you ever wanted to praise God but just wasn’t sure what to praise Him for?  That doesn’t happen often, but if it does, remember Psalm 148:5.  If for no other reason, God is worthy of our praise because He is the Creator!  We all owe our very existence to Him.  And think for a moment about how intricately put together you are.  Admire your fingers, consider your nose, feel your hair, smell the spring flowers, enjoy the warm breeze of springtime, soak in the sun’s rays, hear the birds sing . . . I could go on and on and on!


Our Lord is such a wonderful Father who loves us as no earthly father can.  He made you for the purpose of becoming and being His friend.  What a tremendous blessing!  Don’t let a day go by that you don’t pause, at least for a moment, to say “Thank you, God!”
