Excited for today-- Psalm 117

The words of Psalm 117 are the prayer of my heart this morning as I prepare to get ready to head to the church for a day of celebration. It is such an outstanding privilege that in just a few hours, I will be standing among a people from many different cultural, generational, economical, and denominational experiences--that we will all be lifting up the name of Jesus and connecting in authentic relationships. That is a gift of God's grace! And one I am especially thankful for this morning. Makes me long for heaven where we will all gather and worship the Lord.

From now on, every time I read Psalm 117, I will think of the day I sat in a small apartment in Central China, while a Chinese brother who found Jesus, led us in a song he wrote about Psalm 117. Wow! This is one of those moments you can never describe!
Psalm 117:

Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.

For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.

Praise the Lord!
