“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” Psalm 150:6.
I guess that covers all of us!
I am alive because God has willed it.
I enjoy old windup clocks. I have more than enough of them, according to my wife!
Those clocks are dependent on me. If I forget to wind them, they stop. Therefore, I try to wind them regularly. Some will go for longer times than others. Some will go just a day.
I have noticed also that the clocks need to be in the right setting to work. In an older house, there is slant. Clocks don’t like slant, so I must get them level to get them to work.
Bottom line? The clocks work because of me. Just like me needing God to survive. Every breath I take is God letting me live a breath longer.
Praising Him must be a bigger part of my life. There is nothing contrived when praising God. From within the office, I see changing leaves. Their colors are amazing. A visual feast. God has given me eye candy!
I have a wife in my midst. A caring, super-organized lifelong companion. What a blessing.
Conclusion: I must use my breathing as a reminder of God’s ongoing blessings.
