With Great Joy




“Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.”  Luke 24:51-53 NKJV

I love how Jesus returned to reassure the disciples before being carried up into heaven.

Thank You, Lord, for Your loving patience with us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

All that I
have told you

you will
one day see

with eyes
of understanding

and a mind
that’s set free.

God bless you as He reassures you today.

Glorifying and Praising



“Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.”  Luke 2:20 NKJV

There is so much to glorify and praise God for each day.

Thank You, Lord, for all You show us and tell us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Let us return
glorifying and praising
for all
we’ve seen and heard

as we each
spend time with Him
living out
His word.

God bless you as you glorify and praise Him today!

To Be Praised

“From the rising of the sun to its
going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised.”  Psalm 113:3

I need never wonder what to do next . ..just  praise!

Lord, thank You for giving us so much time to praise You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Question

There’s no question
of Your greatness

it’s not unclear
what we’re to do

from the moment
that we wake up

our lives will give
all praise to You.

Glorifying God

“Offer to God thanksgiving,
And pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.”  Psalms 50:14-15

Whoever offers praise, glorifies Me;
and to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”  Psalms 50:23

If I want my life to glorify God, I need to praise Him.

Lord, we love You and are so grateful that something as simple as thanking You, glorifies You too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Praising Way                                              images

May I offer thanksgiving
all the day through

singing praises
to the One and only You

so my life brings You glory
like I want it to

and Your salvation is seen
making  more hearts new.


Excited About Jesus

“Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.” Luke 2:20

I love how the shepherds didn’t hesitate to share their excitement and wonder at what they had heard and seen.

Oh Jesus, help us share the excitement of You birthing new joy in us daily. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Birthing Joy

Help us to share
the new joy that is birthed
each time You meet with us
and illuminate Your word.
