1 Chronicles 16

"Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord. They will sing because He is coming to judge the world." v33

I just love that verse. I always love the prophetic glimpses into the future that talk about the redemption of the earth and mankind that show up scattered here and there throughout the old testament. This particular verse brought to mind Romans 8:19-23

"Everything God made is waiting with excitement for God to show His children's glory completely. Everything God made was changed to become useless, not by its own wish, but because God wanted it and because all along there was this hope: that everything God made would be set free from ruin to have the freedom and glory that belong to God's children. We know that everything God made has been waiting until now in pain, like a woman ready to give birth. Not only the world, but we also have been waiting with pain inside us.

I love that section of Romans. Such a beautiful picture of what is happening.
Also, quite apt for you, no? :)

This was a beautiful chapter - I love the Psalm of Thanksgiving.

vs. 7-36 - David's song of Praise.
LAB says "If you are truly thankful, your life will show it!" That definitely gives me something to think about.
