i am part of a symphony.

1  Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
2  Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his hosts!
3  Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!
4  Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!
5  Let them praise the name of the Lord!
For he commanded and they were created.
6  And he established them forever and ever;
he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.t
7  Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all deeps,
8  fire and hail, snow and mist,
stormy wind fulfilling his word!
9  Mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars!
10  Beasts and all livestock,
creeping things and flying birds!
11  Kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12  Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
13  Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his majesty is above earth and heaven.
14  He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his saints,
for the people of Israel who are near to him.
Praise the Lord! 

last night i went to a chris tomlin concert.  i went with my 4 best friends and it was the best night I have had in a long time. sometimes i feel like God uses peoples stories to push into my heart. last night he used Louie Giglio. that man is so insane in love with jesus it pours out of him. during the middle of the concert, louie came out and started talking about psalm 148 (above). he describes how there are so many things in this world that create a symphony for Christ, an audible symphony. he let us listen to two different stars that rotate on their axis a certain number of times a second and it makes this awesome sound, one like a drum and one like different notes right after the other. he then let us listen to whales singing. he then combined them all together and added it "how great is our god" chorus and it was the most moving thing. i got chills as the tears rolled down my face. 

here is a video of all the sounds complied. SO moving. (this was in baltimore, but it was the same thing as we heard!)

 i mean, how insane is that? so beautiful. and to think that is only a small bit of what God hears at all times. he went on to explain hod God wants YOU to be a part of this beautiful symphony. he desires YOUR voice. so insane. this was one very moving and incredible experience.
