Praise The Lord!

'Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
celebrate his wonderful name with music.
'

Psalm 135:3

The Psalmist is full of wonder, awe and love for the living God and can't help but express his praise through beautiful poetry and music. What an awesome reminder – and challenge - this is to us; to pause for a moment in our busy schedules and take time to consider the glory of God and the goodness he has poured out into our lives. How can we not sing his praise also?

We recognise that the Christmas period will soon be upon us, and that preparations for that are already under way. We know how distracting and tiring these next two months are likely to be for most people, so we just wanted to take the time to stop – and to invite you to stop with us as we realise the importance of resting in God.

Music – as the Psalmist testifies to – can be a wonderful way of expressing our adoration to God, whether we're singing our own song or meditating on the music of others. Either way, this style of worship is incredibly valuable and we'd encourage you to really take note of its significance. This is why we felt it necessary to bring to your attention a selection of newly released CDs that we carry and would recommend for this very purpose.

We'd just like to finish with a verse from Adoration by Brenton Brown for reflection:

Every soul You've saved sings out
Everything You've made resounds
All creation's standing now
Lifting up Your name
We're joining in the angel's song
We're gathered to Your ancient throne
Children in our Father's arms
Shouting out Your praise

God bless you all
