Day 53

October 14th, 2014

Saved1“I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1. I have determined that I will always praise the Lord. It doesn’t say to praise him when things go my way. It doesn’t say to praise him when I’m in the mood. It does say, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Psalm 150:6. As long as I have breath, I will praise Him. How can I not praise Him? Where would I be had he not died for me?

 

“Where would I be

Had You not died for me?

Had You not hung on that tree

Long ago on Calvary?

My soul would still be lost

Had You not been willing to pay the cost

To wash my sins away,

You paid a price I could not pay.”

This is an excerpt from Long Ago on Calvary written by Lorraine Castle. This is why I praise the Lord. I know what my life was like before turning it over to the Lord. I know where I was headed and it’s not a destination that I aspire to. For that reason, I praise the Lord with every breath I take. And therein lies my Joy.
