Erupting Praise

“Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen,
‘Blessed is the King who comes in
the name of the Lord.
Peace in heaven and glory in the
highest’.” Luke 19:37-38

Something about this passage makes me envision those disciples like a volcano that had to erupt.

Oh Lord, let our praises and joy pour forth now and forevermore. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Be The Praise

For all that You have done
and are about to do
let nothing, no nothing
stop us from rejoicing in You

and being the praise
that continuously sings
glory in the highest
to our blessed King of kings.


  1. I can feel that too, Deb, when you point it out, that they must have been like volcanos…unable to contain their burst of praise. What a beautiful poem!!! It should be a song, too!

  2. I wrote in my journal this morning that there can be a ‘knowing’. As a builder, I can know when I have a wall braced properly. It’s not a hope . . . I can know. Someone telling me that the wall withstood a storm is not assuring me that the wall was braced properly, for I could not have been more sure. It is evidence that it was braced properly.

    I can not be more sure of the matter that I have been praying about. In fact, it is like I am done praying. It is like when the wall is braced properly, there is no need to do more bracing. All that is left now is being made aware of more and more evidence.

    “For all that You have done
    and are about to do”

  3. As insignificant as it is, I left a ‘the’ out. (that ‘the’ wall)

    Correct it if you like.

  4. I loved this poem…so full of thanksgiving and expectation. πŸ™‚


  5. Thanks Deb πŸ™‚

    I love the concept of ‘being the praise’. … πŸ˜‰

    This is beautiful, Deb. Very, very nice and warm πŸ™‚

    Praying nothing will stop us erupting in praise for Him! The visual of the erupting volcano is giving me reason to dance!
    ” I’ve got the Joy, Joy, Joy, down in my heart! ”


  6. I’m happy it wasn’t just me feeling that! God bless you and the song you are for Him!

  7. I feel like we are a tag team. πŸ™‚ And I’m more and more excited, like those disciples, for all the mighty works that I have seen and am getting to experience. Thank you and God bless you for the prayers He has ordained for you to pray!

  8. I corrected it because I know He cares about all the details too. πŸ˜‰

  9. God bless you and your thankful and expectant heart!

  10. Grace eruption here too, with you, Ann! πŸ™‚ Now I’m going to be singing that song, and that’s a good thing. God bless you and your praises to your King!

  11. Praise Him, Praise Him, yes Praise Him, Deb! I don’t know who sings it, but I’m reminded of the song, “Blessed be the Name of the Lord!” Thank you.

  12. Oh yes, that’s a great one. And I’m a blank too right now. Ah . . .looked it up. Tree63! πŸ™‚
    God bless you as you praise Him today!

  13. Oh yes! “let nothing, no nothing stop us from rejoicing in You” The thought made me smile so big πŸ™‚

    Thank you Deb for sharing to us daily something to rejoice about πŸ™‚

  14. What struck me today as I read it was the diff in reaction from the people at the bottom of this mountain – and when Moses came down – here expectancy – there? β€œRuh Roh”.

    I’ve always loved the way you go verse, prose, and then poetry – it’s unique – it’s you – and I always smile.

    God Bless and keep you Deb
    May His face shine upon you…
    and all of yours.

  15. You are such a joy of His and mine.:) I don’t want to forget to look for the Jesus joy and share it. God bless you and thank you for all the ways you find to share Him too!

  16. Thank you Craig, for sharing the difference between the time when Moses came down and when Jesus came down. πŸ™‚ We can expect good things from Him and not be disappointed.
    We have some sunshine here today . . .yay! And God bless you for shining into my day too!

  17. I, too, believe in “knowing” that I call “a listening.” Seems as though the world shouts at us, but if we listen in peace, even in the midst of a crowd, or if we feel it in our gut, as your friend did, that’s the Holy Spirit at work. And it’s always best to pay attention! Thanks for offering a beautiful poem, Debbie. Amy

  18. I love your comments, Amy, because you have a “knowing” about things that I am still learning about. πŸ™‚ God bless you as He works through you today!
