It's Time To Make Some Noise!

It’s Thanksgiving 2015; at least for those of us who live in the USA. It is a day to give thanks to the One who has provided it all for us.
It doesn’t matter whether it has been a good year or not, the Lord is still worthy of our praise. In fact when we praise the Lord for what He has done, we can actually turn our discouragement into hope.
So, my friend, sing! Sing your best, sing from your heart; He is worthy of it! And, He isn't more impressed by how great we sing or not, He listens to what we are saying through our heart.
And the cool thing is, when words elude us, we can pick up an instrument (even a pot and pan) and make a joyful noise to Him!
So set aside time and thank Him for all that He has done for you; He really is good.
It's time to make some noise!
Praise God in His holy house of worship,
Praise Him under the open skies;
Praise Him for His acts of power,
Praise Him for His magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
Praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise Him with castanets and dance,
Praise Him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
Praise Him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!
The Message (MSG)
