I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
“From cradle to grave”, this was a way we used to describe the ministry of a local church. The Body of Christ is something we can be a part of for our entire lives. I have had the privilege of having known and knowing people today who have loved Jesus and followed him from childhood until they took their last breath on earth at an old age. It’s hard to find the words to describe the depth and richness of just such a life. This is what a life-time of praise will do for you, it changes the quality of your life for the good. The beautiful thing about God’s grace is that any of us can begin a “lifetime of praise” at any time. You could start today! “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord”
