TITLE: Daily I worship Thee
By Deborah Shepard


Daily I worship Thee

During the course of my house sitting for good friend, in the Sutton wilderness
There has been plenty of time for me to worship the Lord daily. I have a grand view
Of the Sutton Mountains from the front room window. In the morning the sun shines
Ever so brightly on these beautiful mountains. Each morning I start my devotions and
Prayers, my heart rejoices and is praising, and reverently being in worship to Jesus
Christ. There is a worship song that has a special meaning to me, “Praise Him! Praise
Him! This the first stanza, “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus,our blessed Redeemer! Sing
O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim! Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels glory;
Strength and honor His holy name! Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children; In
His arms He carries them all day long. What glorious and dynamic words to sing in the
act being in worship to the Lord. I have felt the blessing of my daily obedience to being
in worship to the Lord. I have been going back and forth, from my friends house to my
house taking care of daily matters.

I know that doing to many things can wear a person down, and interrupt the flow of
My time spent to worship the Lord. So I have been letting other things take a back burner
So I could stay close to my heart of daily worship to the Lord. Since I’ve been retired in
Early due to medical circumstances. This give me more time and opportunities to spend
Time in worship to the Lord. Whenever the world is tugging me in all directions, I taking
A firm stand and say no to certain requests. This has given a new freedom and spiritual
Discernment in my life. I let others know that I have special times daily that I spend in
Worship to the Lord. I’m getting amazing feedback from family and friends, some are
Even following this practice daily in their lives. I feel if my life is getting to busy to have
Time to worship the Lord. Then there needs to be some life’s revisions made to make room for my reverence to the Lord. There has been some wonderful things unfolding from my daily worship to thee. Our house reconstruction is moving along nicely. My
Granddaughter Maya is healing well from all of her surgeries.

My health is improving greatly there have been some family reconciliation’s. There
Have been countless blessings daily. I feel like my life is growing spiritualism faith is deepening and strengthen daily. There was as few verses in (1 Chronicles 16:28-29 NIV)
David’s Psalm of Thanks (verse 28) Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations ascribe to
The Lord glory and strength, what a powerful statement to proclaim. This reminds me that the Lord is the glory and strength, for me in all areas of my life. In the (verse 29) ascribe to the Lord the glory due to his name. Bring and offering and come before him
Worship the Lord in his splendor of his holiness. This tells me how I should stand before
The Lord daily in my heart of worship to Him. I can incorporate my worship to the Lord
In all that I think and say and act upon. Even while have a lovely outing with loved ones
Tomorrow in Seward. I feel that worship shouldn’t only be in Sunday worship,with the body of believers. It should be taking place daily in all things that we will do. I was thinking of placement of my lives, “God”, good orderly direction daily. When I can keep
Close to this life practice, life seems to come together much better.

I send you all life blessings, and prayers for all of life’s endeavors you make undertake daily. So now I feel the calling for my time to be in worship to the Lord. To give my
Guidance and direction for the up coming life events, God Bless you all.

Deborah, do you have a word processor with grammar checking? You would know because it underlines errors in green. You have something to say, and you have good thought organization, but a good word processor would be so helpful. I need it and use it and I know others do. God bless your words.

I just figured out what's wrong here. If you will just keep typing to the end of the line, and NOT hit the ENTER key before the end of the linesentence, you will find that the first letter of the new line will not capitalize. MS Word wants to capitalize your the first word of your lines. Because you hit the enter key and don't just keep typing with the word wrapping, it thinks you have started a new sentence. But if you will do what I suggested, it should correct that problem.
Try it and let me know if it works. Blessings on all you do.
