Monday Meditation~Breathing Praise

Psalm 150

Praise the LORD.
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty heavens.
Praise Him for His acts of power,
Praise Him for His surpassing greatness.
Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet,
Praise Him with the harp and lyre,
Praise Him with tambourine and dancing,
Praise Him with the strings and flute,
Praise Him with the clash of cymbals,
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD.

As I walked outside first thing this morning, I was met by the song of birds, the chattering of squirrels, the rhythm of cicadas, a chorus of crickets. The verse that proclaims, "Let everything that has breath praise the LORD." immediately came to mind.

Oh Lord, let my very breath be praise to You today. May I remain in an attitude of praise to Your great Name. Thank You for your acts of power that know no end. Thank You for the victory that we have in You and because of You. You are great and greatly to be praised!
