Soothing Praise

Sunrise in the Methow

It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High, Psalm 92:1

Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! Psalm 147:1

The “good” mentioned in these verses doesn’t just mean “the right thing to do.” It means praising God is good (healthy) for our mind body and soul. Praising God allows us to leave the past, the present, and the future in God’s hands. As we praise Him, it diminishes our stress and worry. We begin to relax as the joy of the Lord soothes our mind, body, and soul.
