It’s something we don’t do enough. Something we can’t do enough of. We should do more in our worship. We should do more at home. And we should strive to do more wherever we go. Irving Berlin wrote the music for the 1954 soundtrack to White Christmas. In one song, he expressed:
When I'm worried and I can't sleep
One thing the psalmist encourages is worship:
1 Praise the LORD!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant and praise is becoming.
7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
Sing praises to our God on the lyre,
12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars;
He gives names to all of them.
5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD supports the afflicted;
He brings down the wicked to the ground.
8 Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who provides rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
9 He gives to the beast its food,
And to the young ravens which cry.
14 He makes peace in your borders;
He satisfies you with the finest of the wheat.
15 He sends forth His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
16 He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes.
17 He casts forth His ice as fragments;
Who can stand before His cold?
18 He sends forth His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow and the waters to
10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
He does not take pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD favors those who fear Him,
Those who wait for His lovingkindness.
13 For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
He has blessed your sons within you
In short, we need to continue to count our blessings.
