Behind the Scenes: Psalm 145: Praise!

Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; 
his greatness no one can fathom.
Psalm 145:2-3

When thinking of how I could visually design this psalm, I focused on the first line over & over, "every day I will praise you & extol your name for ever & ever..." I thought about the joyful emotions experienced while I worship my Lord, as well as a natural element that points heavenward. I chose a sunflower, as they are bright & cheery & "turn" to face the sun, their true source of light & life. I wanted the image to be upbeat & beautiful, drawing others into worship themselves.

Worship, whether it be through song, prayer, service, art, writing, etc... is such a personal event as you connect your heart with your creator's. I hope you experience hope, joy, and abundance of life as you enter in and that it is done with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. With that said, I also know there are seasons of life in which worship is purely a choice & according to the Psalms, a sacrifice of praise. Either way, whether we fully "feel" like it or not, He is worthy of all praise and I hope you sense His pleasure and Spirit as you give your pure worship to Him.
