I was out on my daily “prayer run” this morning and had a wonderful experience! Not 8 feet from me on the top of a fence post was a songbird (wish I would have had my camera along!) He completely ignored me, lifted his head to the heavens, opened his beak and sang a beautiful song of praise to his Maker!
Oh, it was beautiful and completely without restraint! I paused, and spoke these words to the Lord… “Oh may my worship of You be as unrestrained as this birds and as pleasing to Your ears as this birds worship has been to mine!”
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre!
For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy!” (From Psalm 92:1–4 ESV)
