Praise the Lord for He is good, praise Him every day Sing songs of hope and redemption, sing songs of joy and love He is our Saviour King, He is our Living God So praise the Lord for He is good and praise Him all the time. We come before His throne this day, we come to worship Him To acknowledge our deficiencies, we need to tell Him so, To place our lives before Him, to make us fit for use And praise the Lord for He is good and praise Him all the time. Praise the Lord for He is good, praise Him every day We witness of His mighty love, we tell of wonder and signs He does stuff through us, that the world says ‘impossible’ So praise the Lord for He is good and praise Him all the time. Step out in faith and take that risk, the poor in spirit rise, Shake off the bonds of guilt and shame, humble then we come, Through Him all things are possible, because He is so great So praise the Lord for He is good and praise Him all day long.
I came home from chapel via circuitous route because I wanted to see something special. There is a wee brook not far from here that when the light catches on the water as the tumble down the stream light hits back up on the bank and depending what flowers are blooming they begin to radiate light too.
I was singing as is my way as I drive, How lovely is Thy dwelling place, and when I arrived at my spot this came out instead of Psalm 84. Any theologians who wish to pick apart my lack of basic understanding of it – work away – it is just an expression of how I was feeling today, not a doctrinally and theologically sound essay.
The theme of the service this morning was light, with the readings coming from John 1:1-14 and although it is a well-known passage, it is one of those that springs off the page and dances in front of us. When we light a candle and then light another from it, it does not diminish the first light and we then have double the light. I don’t know where I heard this but ‘if every Christian shared the good news with just one other person and they accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour that would double the number of Christians in the world’
“Do we reflect the light of Jesus in all we think, do and say?”
