There is a song sung by Shirley Caesar called ‘No Charge,’ that my Mother sung to my brother in a talent show when I was a little girl at church. I think of her everytime this song is played on the radio. I hope that this is a blessing to you, as you listen to the words and feel the love of every Mom’s heart. This song is a tribute to you Mom, Madeline, and to all the Mothers that visit my blog on daily basics:
Praise the Lord for Nurturing Mothers. They are needed in this world. Thank God, if you are one. What a joy!
Yesterday, we got Directions to the Father’s House from allworship.com radio email sent to me a week years ago, and today, I have another great poem from them. It is called ‘The Many Names of Christ’ by an unknown author.

In comparison, this poem shows the many hats that Moms take onto themselves (I’m sure you can think of at least 10), and today is their day to be praised.
I’m not calling mothers, Jesus or vice versus, so let get that straight and out of the way. All I’m saying, you can call on Moms to help with many needs in your life and the Lord use them mightily in this world. Do something nice, no matter how you feel about it – your biological, adopted, substitute, or godmom. It is a sacrifice, just like your praise to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
To me…Jesus Christ is the entire above poem and more; He is my everything, my all in all! I cannot live without Him; for He is the essence of my being. Lord God, I give you all of the glory and honor. To stand in awe of your presence, I say ‘Hallelujah,’ and worship You my Lord.
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lamb of God!!!
The precious blood of Jesus Christ, I am healed and set free to worship without hesitation.
I love you Lord God.
What is Christ to you?
Praising the Lord is simple, and takes little to no effort; for those of you who love the Lord with your all and all. If you are here for the first time, I will encourage you to read my old blog post through my archives on praise. There you will find help for your learning. This is what this blog is all about – learning praise and worship towards our God!
Have you been thinking about the question, are you going to answer me this time? I would like for you to leave a comment of praise. Not for my benefit, but for yours.
Watch this youtube video by Micah Stampley called ‘I Believe,’ I will ask again:
Lord, I believe everything that Your word says! I trust you today and always.
Glory to God!
What is Christ to you? Leave your answer in the comment of praise.
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
