A Melody of Praise


I love the sound of water gently trickling through a fountain or over rocks in a mountain stream. It’s a soothing melody, and it always puts me in a spirit of peace. Sometimes, when I listen to the music of a brook, I think of it as nature’s way of praising the Maker, and it makes me want to praise Him, too–for His glorious creation, for His love and salvation, for being my Guide through life. Praise pleases God’s ears, but it has an effect on the praiser, too. When we praise Him, we open ourselves to Something bigger and stronger and better than we can be. And our lives become a melody of praise for Him.
