Entry 1. "Sing Praises!"

The Bible talks about many different kinds of worship but one of my favorites is the worship of song.  I have been singing since I could talk and my siblings actually can tell my mood by whether I am quiet or bursting out in song.  Tonight, I'm going with friends and family to our church to prepare for this Sundays music. It has been  such a joy to be on my churches music team. I have gotten to know a lot of people, had a lot of fun, but most importantly I have been able to glorify God with the gifts He has given me!

Sometimes we can catch ourselves thinking that our talents and gifts are ours to do whatever we want with, but who gave us those gifts? God gave us those and He can take them away! So the least we can do is use the gifts and talents to glorify Him and make His name great! I pray that will be the attitude that will be in all our hearts tonight!

Psalm 89:1
I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.

Hey Miranda!
I follow Hannah's blog and found out about yours from her.
I also love being involved in the music at my church, and this post seemed to sum up my thoughts almost exactly!
Keep your heart and eyes focused on the Lord, and you will go far in life - Be successful in HIS eyes!

SOLI DEO GLORIA!
