What are you listening to?


What are you listening to today?
Are you praising our Father?
The book of Psalms is the "praise book" of the Bible, and it gives us many, many reasons why praise is important.
It even gives us examples of how to give praise to God.
Check this out:
 
          It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High. 
                                                       (Psalm 92:1)

See? Praise is a good thing. It's pleasant, and it is valuable, as well as being beautiful and uplifting.

          Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and
          fitting to praise Him.  (Psalm 147:1)

What are you listening to today?
Is it a song of praise to Him?

I've had the words, and the tune to this one going through my head the last couple of days. Whenever I start to feel anxious or overwhelmed, I'm trying to replace those thoughts with these thoughts, and sing it to myself. It's very simple, but ti does the trick.

Lyrics to Peace Be Still

He says peace, peace be still
Lifts his hands, peace be still

Like a child the winds obey him
When he says peace be still

He says peace, peace be still
Lifts his hands, peace be still

Like a child my heart obeys him
When he says peace be still
Hear his voice peace be still

Holy holy
Holy is the Lamb
Holy holy
Holy is the Lamb
