Let Everything that Has Breath Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord.
Praise God in His sanctuary;
praise Him in His mighty heavens.
Praise Him for His acts of power;
praise Him for His surpassing greatness.
Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise Him with the harp and lyre,
praise Him with tambourine and dancing,
praise Him with the strings and flute,
praise Him with the clash of cymbals,
praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
Psalm 150:1-6

Kings of the earth and all nations,
princes and all rulers of the earth,
young men and women,
old people and children,
Praise the Lord,
because He alone is great.
He is more wonderful than heaven and earth.
Psalm 148:11-13

Everything I have comes from God. Everything He is and has done and will do deserves my praise. Praise Him everywhere. In my bed at night, in the car, in a crowd or alone. Praise Him for everything that He is: faithful, loving, kind, full of grace, THE truth, just. Praise Him with every musical instrument available. Not everyone praises God like they should. Even I fall short of what I need to be doing. But one day - everyone will praise Him as He deserves.
