Multitude Monday

Psalm 28:6-8 ~

Praise the Lord!

   For he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
   I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
   I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Rip. 

I frantically tried to stop the pouring out of rice all over the floor.  I had been making a heat pack when one of the seams broke.  Apparently, the fragile seam could only take so much before there was nothing it could do but burst open.  The rice poured out every where and even though I cleaned it up, I wasstill finding grains of rice in the strangest places days later.

Rip. 

Are you bursting at the seams?  Are you so full of thanksigiving that it bursts out of you without thinking?  Is your response to praise or pout?  Do you speak joy or jealousy at another's blessing?  Do you sing thanksgiving or spout complaints?

Be bursting at the seams.  Let joy pour out of you.  Let thanksgiving cascade from your mouth.

Rip. 

Let rejoicing flow out.
