Praise Him

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, and the great King above all gods.” Psalm 95:1-3

I was sitting outside in my front yard very early this morning. I was working on a Bible study and enjoying some quiet time with God. I could hear many sounds…sounds of the birds waking up and getting breakfast from the feeders, the hummingbirds fighting over territories with the clashing of their beaks against each other, and the bees buzzing among the flowers. I even had a Momma Monarch butterfly come through to deposit some eggs on my milkweed plants…such a menagerie of God’s creation. I could not help but give our Creator God, the praise He deserves!

Out here in my garden you would not know I am less than 100 feet from a busy road. It is my oasis, my sanctuary.

I am thankful, content to just be…to be still and sit in the Presence of Majesty. His Majesty…as He is all around me, all around us. His fingerprints are everywhere. Remember that song? It is true.

When I am giving Him praise and shouting joyfully to His Name…the darkness runs. The forces of darkness have no place here.

We are called to worship Him. We cannot allow anyone or anything to silence us. Especially in these times of uncertainty & chaos. It is a time to praise The LORD, to lift the Name of YAHWEH ELOHIM!

Bringing Glory to Jesus IAMHIZ·THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2019 Life is complicated and I can get weary. When all seems lost and I don’t know where to turn, I turn to Jesus. He is my Strength & my Deliverer. In Him I trust. I enjoy each moment because it will not come again. My name is Tami. I am an ordinary wife, mother, mother-in-law, sister, friend and now a Grammy! This is my grandson Kaleb telling me a story! I have no special abilities. I laugh, I cry, I hurt, I see joy. Well, actually I do have a super power... My Super Power is JESUS living within me. I AM HIZ. He is mine. As we journey together, I hope I can cheer you on, inspire you and tell you about Him who gives me Hope & Joy, JESUS. There is joy in the little things, the warm sun on my face, dancing in the rain, a butterfly fluttering by, smelling Kaleb’s sweet baby head (oh that sweet Baby Magic smell!), holding my husband’s hand, a hot cup of coffee with my Bud, a gentle breeze, a flower opening. There is joy in the big things, loving Jesus and allowing Him to guide my life, the love and protection of my husband, spending time with my sons, Ricky & Benjamin and their beautiful wives, Colleen & Molly, snuggling my precious grandson Kaleb, spending time with my brothers & their families, enjoying fellowship with my Bible study girl friends. Life needs to be put in the right perspective. Things will not be perfect and life hurts us...but we can choose joy. We can choose to look for the good. Be careful not to miss out on the moment while you are worrying about tomorrow or wishing things were different. I try to keep my focus on Jesus. When I do, my trials don’t seem as overwhelming, the storms don’t rage as strong . I know He is working in and through the trials. I can get through this. You can too.
