Giving Praise at Lent

Tom read the words to me from Luke 2 yesterday morning. The story is supernatural. Divine.

We ended the reading in song with these words:

“Immanuel. Immanuel. His name is called Immanuel.

God with us. Revealed in us. His name is called Immanuel.”

Today we moved on. The idea of a young couple bringing their infant son who happens to be the Son of God into the temple to be blessed by a priest is astounding.

Simeon was waiting for Messiah. Looking. Praying. His prayer was answered.

A woman from the tribe of Asher who spent the last several years of her life praying and fasting and watching for Messiah at the temple, received the privilege of seeing him.

Single-minded devotion to the King.

Am I willing to sacrifice my time, money, even my appetite to see the Lord? To know Him better?

This praise blog is one of the feeble ways I’m trying.  Today, Tom and I sang 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman. I just listened to this YouTube video and it brought me to the feet of my King again.

Blessings, friend.

Keep praising.
