Shout for Joy!

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God. 
It is he who made us, and we are his; 
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise; 
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; 
his faithfulness continues through all generations. 

Psalm 100 

Extra. Extra. Read all about it!!  I want to  scream from the roof tops, but I can't do that, so I have to "yell" from my blog.

The Lord was faithful, just as he promised!!  He answered my prayers!!  Not the way I wanted I thought it should be, or the way I thought my life was planned out.  But in HIS PERFECT WAY!  And I am thankful for that!

So, let me pass on my good news to my faithful readers:

The Lord blessed me with a J.O.B.  

I will share some more details as they get ironed out, but today I just want to focus on praising the Lord for this incredible gift.  Sometimes, we only turn to the Lord during our times of trials and sufferings because we NEED him during that particular time.  We are dependent on him.  We are at a loss and don't know how else to get through the day, week, month, or longer.  But then things start going back on the "right" track, and it's easy to forget who got us through that rough patch--Jesus.  We must not forget to thank the ONE who is responsible for the joy in our lives and give him the praise he deserves.  

We were created to praise the Lord!  It is our purpose for being on this earth.  Let's not forget to Praise our faithful KING!

I will exalt you, my God the King; 
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever 
Psalm 145:1-2
