90 Days Through The Bible Day 42: Psalm 61-90

In my head, I know that the Psalms are filled with songs, but I did not think that I would change my view on a favorite worship song from my youth group days. I always thought that the song Better is One Day talked about heaven, but it is actually speaking about how it would be better spend one day in the temple of the Lord, instead of a 1,000 days elsewhere. How awesome must it have been to have been able to worship in the temple, to spend just a few moments in His presence, His dwelling here on earth. Any time spent in praise, in worship, giving thanks to the Lord is not wasted. Almost every one of the psalms offer thanks to the Lord. How often do we give thanks to the Lord?

Help me to remember:

to praise You, even when asking for deliverance, they were quick to praise you first.

Lord, I ask that . . .

I be reminded that life is short and time spent with You is never wasted.

Heavenly Father, I am thankful . . .

the fact You are my defender.
