The Best That We Can Do...

 Praise the LORD. 
Give thanks to the LORD, 
for he is good; 
his love endures forever.
Ps. 106:1

The best that we can do for God
Is praise His name from ports of sod
Inept are we to explain love
Save to raise praise to God above

The best that anyone can do
Is praise He who loves me and you
Inept are we to explain grace

The best way we can conquer fear
Is praise He who is ever near
Inept are we to explain this;
Nothing is greater than God IS

The best way we can live for Him
Is lift His name in praise, amen
Inept are we to explain He
Who hears the praise of you and me

It’s easy to sing God’s praise when things go our way.
What about those times when life doesn’t give us what we want?
Better then, to turn our eyes to Calvary, remembering He who took our place and praise Him for love’s redeeming grace!

Praise Him then, every day we live
Not just for what we get, but give!

I'm sure many of us in this area are praising Him for sending a much needed rain this morning... 
How will we give praise today?!
