Thankful Thursday

"Give thanks with grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He gave Jesus Christ"

From the song "Revelation"


Last Friday, our worship team participated in a 12 hour non-stop praise and worship again, this is our second time for this year. The organizers called it “Hallelujah Worship”. We were on a 4 AM slot and there were only few people left, hubby and I finished the whole program so we really are sleepless last Friday night but that doesn’t matter. I enjoyed it specially the last hours of the worship time. It’s very seldom that I do actually worshiping and singing songs for the Lord on wee hours of the morning and it feels so right. I praise and thank God for that wonderful experience!

And like Lynn, I am also thankful that I found Christian blogs in the internet, like the blogs of the Thankful Thursday participants, reading posts about their lives and journeys encourages me most of the time. And isn’t it nice to read praises for our Father every now and then? In the world where everyone is rushing, it is so good to hear someone pausing and giving thanks to the Lord.

The effect of praising god with music is so awsome....You can start with a down mood but it always raises your mood up.....!!
