Living Praise


When you are your true self…God’s glory shines.

Psalm 145:10-11

All your works give you thanks, O Lord, and your faithful bless you. They speak of the glory of your reign and tell of your great works.


All living things are themselves with all they can be.

They are all in as is.

They don’t wish they could be something else.

They do not look in envy on anything else…comparing or judging.

They have no schemes or ulterior motives.

They live with clear purpose.

Trees, birds, animals, insects, etc. simply are themselves to the fullest extent of their being.

In doing so they are in a constant state of thanksgivinggiving glory to their Maker. 

May we be mindful of this and do the same in each moment of our lives.

Simply be present.

Be yourself.

It’s the only way that God’s kingdom can come…and God’s will can be done “on earth as it is in heaven.”
