How do you express it? How do describe it? Have ever realized how important it is to express how much you like something? Have you noticed how it completes it?Remember that one movie where in the scene they say “you complete me“? What does it take to express such emotion and love? How about when you have a great meal, how many compliments do you hear about the food, the chef, the restaurant, etc?How about a walk through nature in the fall with all the colors? How about a wedding of a young couple?Do you realize that praise is something that helps us complete the experience? It is something that comes naturally from liking what you are doing.In this same way there is no good reason why we can’t or shouldn’t be praising and worshipping God is the author and perfected and from whom every good and perfect gift comes.When the joy of the Lord is our strength, that joy will overflow into praise of God!It’s natural! It’s expected! It’s required to complete us! So let’s enjoy this life God has given us and praise Him in and through it all! Let’s allow everything in our lives to complete their work and purpose so that may be complete and lacking nothing! Let’s persevere and praise God in all we do!
