The psalmist wrote, “It is good to give thanks to the lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening, accompanied by the ten-stringed harp and the melody of the lyre.” Psalm 92:1-3 NLT
Today many are preparing for new year’s eve celebrations. In just a few short hours 2013 will be history. The precious gift of time is cause for celebration as well as an opportunity to give thanks to the Lord for all He did in 2013. The psalmist encouraged us to sing praises to God. For it was by His Grace and Mercy we celebrate life and His gifts to us.
During this holiday season, my husband and I have had so many reminders in the form of phone calls, cards, texts, FB, visits with family and friends and gifts. These were priceless drops of love from heaven. They felt like rays of love coming from the throne of Grace. God was saying I heard your prayers, I know your hearts and thank you. This time has been glorious, and I am so grateful.
Now, as we prepare for tonight’s watch night service where songs of praise and thanksgiving will be heard, we extend to you and yours blessings for the new year. Sing farewell to 2013. Sing praises to God and welcome to 2014.
