Thought for the Day – Psalm 34:1 on Praise

I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips”– Psalms 34:1 (NIV)

We sang of my favorite songs in church today: O Come Let Us Adore Him. Perhaps as you read the name of that familiar Christmas song the melody began to play in your head. Does it seem of place in the heat of August? Yet, every word is fitting for all occasions:

    O come let us adore Him
    O come let us adore Him
    O come let us adore Him
    Christ the Lord

    For You alone are worthy
    For You alone are worthy
    For You alone are worthy
    Christ the Lord

    We’ll give You all the glory
    We’ll give You all the glory
    We’ll give You all the glory
    Christ the Lord

As awkward as it seemed singing that song in August, it was a great reminder that we are to praise God at all times. Even in our awkward moments, like this morning when I was irritated because we were late for church. My wife gently suggested we pray. It felt awkward. But it was the right thing to do then, and always.

Your thoughts? How inclined are you toward praise in your awkward moments?
