Devotional: Thankful Hearts Lift Up Songs Of Praise

PSALM 32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Psalm 100:2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing.

I love it when church starts with singing! There have been many times I have piddled around at home and walked in just as announcements or the sermon started and even though the message was good, I still missed something.Praising the Lord in song, ushers my mind and heart into worship.

In earlier devotionals, I am quite sure, I have mentioned how singing songs to the Lord quiet even the most troubled spirit. It is amazing how even a desperate heart can go from crying out to the Father to singing of His greatness, love and mercy. It quietly escorts someone from a dark, lonesome place, right to the Throne of the King.

Regardless of finding understanding about our situation or the circumstances remaining the same for a season, through Him, we can find strength, willingness and courage to proclaim the mercies of our Great Jehovah!

How Sweet and Beautiful is our Lord to bless us with comfort only He can give! What a Gracious Savior we have to let us realize His presence, acknowledge and accept our recognition of Him, entering His Gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise!


Great Jehovah
Father God
The Great I Am

Please forgive us of our sins
Allow us, please, to lift up grateful voices

How we love to sing praises to Your Name
For eternity we will magnify You
For it would take as long to give You praise

You ALONE Are worthy of our thanks
Alone, You created us
You saved us, Lord

The Great Redeemer of the unworthy

Before the Father we stand cleansed
Through the Blood of the Risen Lamb!

Lord, You are so rich in mercy
You give joy to the hearts giving praise to You!

Please delight in our songs and hymns
O that You would smile, Father, at the sincerity of our praise!

In the Name of Jesus, the Risen Son of God,


“Lord, I Lift Your Name On High”

“Arise, My Love” (I know this is typically “Easter” related, but what better reason to rejoice!)

“All Hail the Power of Jesus Name”

“Praise God From Whom All Blessing Flow”

“To God Be The Glory”

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
