“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” Psalm 145:3
All around us we see the hand of God; in the sky above and upon the Earth below. Our eyes behold Him in the intricate details of color, our ears hear Him in the musical notes of sound, and our hands feel Him in the overlaying textures of His creation. Everywhere we turn there is God before us demonstrating just how much He loves us and provides for every aspect of our lives. Even in the moment our heart first began to beat, He was there masterfully forming us according to His plan.

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” Psalm 28:7

“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.” Psalm 30:11-12
In thankfulness of heart we come before Him, for He is greatly to be praised.
