Everyday Incense of Thanksgiving: Spurgeon Spoken Word, 11/20

"Jeremiah Lamenting the Destruction of Je...

“O Lord,You  have pleaded
the causes of my soul;
You
have redeemed my life.”
A grateful spirit should ever
be cultivated by the Christian;

and especially after deliverances
we should prepare a song for our God.
Earth should be a temple filled
with the songs of grateful saints,
and every day should be a censor

smoking with the sweet incense of thanksgiving.  gratitude. =)smoking  with the sweet incense of thanksgiving

How joyful Jeremiah
seems to be while he records
the Lord’s mercy.
How triumphantly
he lifts up the strain!

He has been in the low dungeon,Dungeons / Mazmorras

and is even now no other
than the weeping prophet;

and yet in the very book
which is called “Lamentations,”

clear as the song of Miriam
when she dashed her fingers
against the tabor, shrill
as the note of Deborah
when she met Barak with shouts of victory,

we hear the voice of Jeremy
going up to heaven—”You have pleaded the causes
of my soul; you have redeemed my life.”
O children of God, seek

after a vital experience

Song Thrush

of the Lord’s lovingkindness,
and when you have it,

speak positively of it;
sing gratefully;
shout triumphantly.
