Praise With One Another

One of my cousins and me at Cracker Barrel

“I will extol the Lord at all times;

His praise will always be on my lips.

My soul will boast in the Lord;

Let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

Glorify the Lord with me;

Let us exalt his name together.” Psalm 34:1-3

God deserves our highest praise. We can praise him for the tiniest thing in our lives. For some of us, we can praise Him for the ability to get out of bed in the morning. I praise God whenever I can hold a small child.

Sometimes our praise is about the work God is doing although we can’t see it yet. Yes, we can give thanks for work He is yet to do.

In conversation with friends, we can praise the Lord with them when God blesses them. When we realize He has bestowed a gift upon us, we can share that kindness to others and give praise with our friends.

When we take the time to praise God, we magnify what the Lord has done for His children. Those who are ill or spiritually impoverished will hear and learn of His goodness. Then, they will join us in rejoicing.

Let us all honor God by raising Him up before our nations as one people-His people.


  1. Praise God for such a great post! Thank you Cecelia! enjoy your weekend.

  2. Marja:
    Thank you for your kind words. I pray God will guide you through your weekend.

  3. I praise God for your friendship, the sweetness of you throwing cyber confetti on Rhonda Schrock's blog, and the answers to prayer God gives us every day.

    Cyber hugs and blessings,

  4. Thank you for your encouragement and your friendship. I pray for you almost every day. Re: the confetti, I made some when a friend of mine had a daughter returning from Desert Storm in 1991. My family thought I was a bit off center. But she and her future husband thought it was neat.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
