Praise in Action

I praise the Lord with my whole heart; with each breath I sing to my God. Happy are those who trust him and surrender their lives to his care. He creates us in his own image and fills us with his compassion, opening the eyes of the blind and lifting up those who have fallen. His justice shines from the depths, hidden but always present. Praise him for what you can fathom; for what you can’t fathom, praise him.
(Ps. 146 Stephen Mitchell’s translation)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— 9 not the result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. (Eph. 2:8-10 NRSV)
