Standing Ovation

Creation and creatures applaud You, God; Your holy people bless You. (Psalm 145:10 MSG)

Have you ever just stopped

And simply took a pause

Considered the works of His hands

And wanted to stand up in applause

 

How can we magnify

And make Him known

How can we applause

For all that He has shown

 

I began to ponder

So I asked Him about this

His answer was soft

But came ever so swift

 

Your life is My applause

That is your praise

You can applaud Me

With your hands raised

 

While in prayer

On bended knee

When I see you like this

You are applauding Me

 

I’ve given you instruments

Of melody and percussion

When in use you applaud loudly

It endears heavenly discussion

 

So there is not a set formula

It is a heart motivation

So join me today as we give

Our Lord a standing ovation

 

Break out in applause

Pray and dare to believe

Because when we applaud

Expectant hearts do receive

 

I want to applaud

From out of pure joy

With more than emotion

Or a thunderous roar

 

With a heart that beats

With a dance and rhythm

Because out of my being

I am God driven

 

So no matter the posture

No matter the sound

Applaud Him today

His goodness abounds

 

Shout to the world

The wonderful works He has done

Our applause is loudest

Bringing glory to The Son

I will praise The Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Thank You Father, maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them, You are The LORD, who remains faithful forever. You uphold the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry. You set prisoners free, You give sight to the blind, You, The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down and You, The Lord loves the righteous. You watch over the alien and sustain the fatherless and the widow but frustrate the way of the wicked. Amen

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
