Clapping, Dancing, Rejoicing Trees? Okay....
"For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field
shall clap their hands."
These trees in my woods definitely look like they are clapping their hands and dancing for joy!
"Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord,
For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.
He shall judge the world with righteousness,
And the peoples with His truth."
Some joyful trees in the woods
The Dogwood Tree is reaching up its arms to heaven, offering
a Doxology of Praise to its Creator...
Thanking Him for new life!
"Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His
salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
For the Lord is great and
greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens."
"Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His Sanctuary.
Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
Give to the Lord the glory due His Name;
Bring an offering, and come into His courts.
Oh worship the Lord
in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him,
all the earth.
Say among the nations,
'The Lord reigns;
The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be moved;
He shall judge the peoples
I had a beautiful day today...rejoicing before the Lord...clapping with the trees in the woods, giving the Lord the glory due His name. I will say to you among the nations today, "The Lord reigns!"
I hope and pray that your day was also filled with rejoicing before the Lord. If not, why not try it?
"Sing to the Lord a new song!...Sing to the Lord, bless His name..."
You will be amazed at the difference it will make in your mind, soul, and spirit.
Try it...You might like it!
