Why is praising God important? The reasons are countless. Here are a couple.....
First, God deserves to be praised and He is worthy to receive our praise:
"For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods" (Psalm 96:4).
"Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom" (Psalm 145:3).
"I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies" (2 Samuel 22:4).
"You are worthy, our LORD and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being" (Revelation 4:11).
Second, praising God is useful and favorable for us. By praising God, we are reminded of the greatness of God! His power and presence in our lives is reinforced in our understanding. "Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant" (Psalm 135:3).
PRAISE GOD!!! He is always there for me.. even when I'm not sure of my own self. He's there to pick me up... brush me off and help me to get back on track! Thank you Lord for reminding me that I'm loved.. especially when I'm not feeling loved.
PRAISE GOD for giving me friends. They may mostly be online friends of which I have never met in person.... but they have become some of my best friends.
PRAISE GOD for my love of crafting... and my desire to share it with others.
Now here is a Praise Report. Remember the lovely lady I mentioned back in a previous post that was getting comfortghans made for all the Seniors in a Senior Center near her? These were the 12 squares I sent her to put together for a 'ghan..................................
She reached her GOAL of 100 'ghans for her Seniors.... PRAISE GOD!!

Now this was a swap gift I was ever so blessed to receive! I love everything! The scarves are so darn neat! They are soft! I am going to bug my Swap Buddy (Colleen Rose) till she cant stand it anymore.. to give me the pattern............... hehheeeee!

**Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
