Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

WORSHIP Like THAT


The gene of "invention" comes early in life!
********************************************


And... it is being put to worhipful use!
*******************************************

Ephesians 5:1 [The Message]

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with Him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of Himself to us. Love like that.

2 Chronicles 5:12-14
[NIV]
12 All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets. 13 The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang:
"He is good;
His love endures forever."
Then the temple of the LORD was filled with a cloud, 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God. [emphasis added]

I wonder? Is this how it starts? Worship in its purest form! How God is so pleased - that His glory excludes all else?

PRAISE HIM - with hearts and lips and voices - and even drum sets made of food cans!

Choosing JOY,

Stephanie
[JESUS - the One I Worship]

Yes, this is Jyden Luke Brower. He is 2 years old and loves to sing songs and play drums. His favorite song [right now] is Chris Tomlin's:
Indescribable.
Even I don't know all the words - but he does!!
Jyden's name means: Jehovah-Jireh = The Lord Will Provide from Gensis 22.

His Mom [Susan] went to the store and bought these big cans of things for their annual retreat this past weekend. Jy thought they were his new drum set. He hauled each one to the family room and set them up himself! Too funny!

Blessings from,
His Mom-Mom
