Reasons to Praise

I’ve been working on a little project of late.  It’s a collection, that I started years ago, of what I call “Reasons to Praise”.  I mentioned it a couple years ago, but I have some new readers, so I thought I’d give this little bit of background info…

Anyhow, I call it “Reasons to Praise” and it’s a collection of 205, sort of, characteristics about God.    I’m working my way up to 365 ~ one for every day. 

So the past few days I’ve been adding to it, and researching additional Bible verses to support each one, and because this is where my head has been, I wanted to share some of them with you…
