Word Filled Wednesday Psalm 100:2

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the WORD through a photo and a verse.

Psalm 100:2 Worship the LORD with gladness, come before him with joyful songs.

I have SO missed the last two weeks of Word Filled Wednesday - it's my favorite bloggy carnival because I really do get the most out of it. It lifts me up!

WORSHIP is the topic for me this month. Don't worry, even though my last three weeks have been filled with flooding, sickness, death, tremendous spiritual warfare and just plain old exhaustion, I can say that the joy of the Lord is with me, and was with me the entire time! I have many things to be GLAD for!! Here, why don't I share a few, and maybe it can turn your frown upside down too? I don't want to keep it all for myself you know.

I am glad that I have a family and wonderful kids who are healthy and happy.
I am glad that my Grandfather was baptized and is now at home with Jesus
I am glad that I have friends who will stick by me through thick and thin
I am glad that I am married to a man of incredibly strong faith, and who challenges me to be a better person every day
I am glad that I am part of a WONDERFUL church family
I am glad that our worship team has overcome some major obstacles recently to pull together and just WORSHIP! We're going through a study called, "The Worshiping Artist" and a few thoughts really stuck with me, but I want to share this tidbit:

"Worship is more than just music, it's a lifestyle"
and also,
"Worship is not something we only do on Sundays, it's a way of life"

May your day be filled with joyful songs of worship!

What a wonderful list of thankfulness! I think that's the secret to Faith that God doesn't want to be kept secret...finding joy in all things and praising Him always, regardless of circumstances!

My goodness these people are up early!!!

I love this verse Lexie... and I've missed your WFW blogs too... I loved your expression in closing too... I don't know how people can only spend time with God one day a week, my days are filled with him through out and I've gotten better, made stronger and my path is more patient...

You truly helped pave my way, right along Sarah girl... you guys are the most amazing best friends any Christian girl could ask for.

Love you, Me

What a great verse! You've given it the perfect setting with this picture, too.

May we all remember to spend time in worship and praise to our Lord.

Happy WFW!

What a beautiful verse and picture. I find that when I'm worshiping, I am so at peace.

We do have a lot in common as far as kids and their ages. They are a blessing.

Blessings in Him.

Beautiful....Praise and worship is where it's at. Thanks for sharing!!

Happy WFW!!

Beth E. said...

What a great post...and so true! You're right...we do tend to think of praise and worship simply as a time of singing.

Forgive me, Lord, when I go about my day without praising and worshiping You...not for the things you DO, but for who you ARE!

Preach on, sister! I love your WFW's! :o)

Miriam said...

Just the yellow cheered me up like a ray of sunshine! Thanks, Lex, for sharing the Word and your photo today!
