Some artists will choose to project softly; other inspired ones will tell stories of heroes of renown.
Eager fingers take up pens, pencils, or rest on keys - ready to script a truthful tale (no need for tall ones) of adventure. Guitar strings, ivory keys, taut bows, and didgeridoos await - ready to serve as tools of expression.
What wealth is there to be found?
1 I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King!
and I’ll bless your name into eternity.
2 I’ll bless you every day,
and keep it up from now to eternity.
3 God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough.
There are no boundaries to his greatness.
4 Generation after generation stands in awe of your work;
each one tells stories of your mighty acts.
5 Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
I compose songs on your wonders.
6 Your marvelous doings are headline news;
I could write a book full of the details of your greatness.
7 The fame of your goodness spreads across the country;
your righteousness is on everyone’s lips.
8 God is all mercy and grace—
not quick to anger, is rich in love.
9 God is good to one and all;
everything he does is suffused with grace.
10Creation and creatures applaud you, God;
your holy people bless you.
Psalm 145:1-10 (The Message)
Tell your story of God's grace.
Compose your song of exultation.
Pen the brief reflection that captures volumes.
Write the volume that inspires a life to change.
Preach boldly of the love of God.
Sing and lead others to do so with all their hearts.
Tell the old, old story and lift up a new song.
In your generation - speak, sing, and write so that the next will hear, sing, and read.
"God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough."
