A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Lana Housewright

Hello, fellow travelers. I am Lana Housewright—wife of Tip; mother of John, Alex, Liz, and Will; and friend and follower of Jesus. Professionally, I am an architect. Vocationally, I am a watercolor painter. For fun, I enjoy suspenseful movies, historical books, eclectic music, and belly laughs.

But my greatest privilege is teaching children about Jesus! I serve in Watermark's Starting Blocks ministry on Sundays and in Flight School for Women's Bible Study on Wednesday mornings. Yes, Jesus loves me; and I'm in the Lord's Army!

HOW DO YOU KNOW TO PRAISE THE LORD?

Psalm 148

Praise the Name of the Lord

148:1 Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his hosts!

Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord!
For he commanded and they were created.
And he established them forever and ever;
he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away. [1]

Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all deeps,
fire and hail, snow and mist,
stormy wind fulfilling his word!

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! (ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
