Worship and Praising

It's Friday!  Friday, the 13th to be exact. Are you superstitious?  We kid about it, but I don't think I am.  When I mentioned the date to Allie and Timm, Allie got all excited.  Timm, well, he wants to watch a scary movie tonight.  They are so different.  But so are we, as children of God.  We all are made up of quirks and think differently.  I am glad about that.  I like that I am an individual.  But we all have the same goal.  To live for Christ.  To win nonbelievers to the kingdom of God.  To worship God.  I think the last one is sometimes the easiest thing to do, but sometimes our hearts and minds are not atuned with others.  Life's distractions get in the way.  Money, children, work, friends, all these add up to life's frustrations.  If these things are worrying you and keeping you from worshiping God, then read Psalm 113.

 1Praise the LORD!
         Praise, O servants of the LORD,
         Praise the name of the LORD.
    2Blessed be the name of the LORD
         From this time forth and forever.
    3From the rising of the sun to its setting
         The name of the LORD is to be praised.
    4The LORD is high above all nations;
         His glory is above the heavens.
    5Who is like the LORD our God,
         Who is enthroned on high,
    6Who humbles Himself to behold
         The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
    7He raises the poor from the dust
         And lifts the needy from the ash heap,
    8To make them sit with princes,
         With the princes of His people.
    9He makes the barren woman abide in the house
         As a joyful mother of children.
         Praise the LORD!
