Psalm 148 is joyous and makes me smile as I read it. It is about how all of nature praises God and about how we too praise God and extol His holy name. Sometimes it is good to just step back and catch a full glimpse of His glory.
In the early winter of this post-Christmas time it can be hard to praise God. The joy of the holidays are past and sometimes we just feel like we are done celebrating for a bit.
It is precisely this situation which calls us to sit down and spend some time with a good psalm. It refreshes the spirit and renews the soul. It connects us to a larger faith as we join nature and other souls in praising God. In our praise we are never alone.
Praise be to God today!! Praise be to God.
