Arms Open Wide

Are we a people who live with our arms wide open? Ready to embrace others, prepared to share our warmth? Is praise the sound in between the beats of action?
People who live with their arms wide open are not postured to defend. They know where their help comes from. These people are postured to praise and embrace.
I believe Jesus lived this way. If He was in any other stance, He inevitably returned here ASAP.
For those of you clutching with all your might, hanging on by your figure nails or resigned just to move forward. Open your arms wide!! Sing a song of praise even if you are not “feelin’ it.” God inhabits the praise of His people, and His love covers so, so much.
Your conscious choice to praise will prepare you to receive everything God has for you and allow you to release every burden that was never yours to carry.

Psalm 34:1-5
I will bless the Lord at all times;
  His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
  Let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
  and let us exalt his name together!
 I sought the Lord, and he answered me
  And delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
  and their faces shall never be ashamed.
