   I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
    -- Psalm 69:30, New International Version

   When was the last time you sang praises to God outside a church or devotional service? Why not open up the Psalms and find several verses that reflect your own praise and thanks to God and give them a tune -- your own tune!  God doesn't care if your spiritual gift is music or not, he's just listening for your heart to be full of joy as you share your praise and thanksgiving with him.  If you need inspiration, walk outside and listen for the songs of praise to God in nature, the wind, the birds the leaves, even the rain and thunder, they are all there, each and every day.

   O gracious Father, giver of every good and perfect gift, forgive me for relegating my thanksgiving and praise to special days and special places.  As you fill me with your Spirit, may my heart overflow with songs of praise and words of thanksgiving.  In Jesus' holy name I pray. Amen.
