Damos Gracias a Dios… Cantandole – We give thanks to God… Singing!


Por Marianny Lantigua Cruz

El salmo 147: 7 dice “Cantad a Jehová con alabanza, cantad con arpa al Señor”, el mismo es una invitación muy clara y concisa que nos invita a estar en comunión con nuestro creador y alabarle.  ¿Pero, cuál es el significado de la alabanza? ¿Cuál es su propósito? ¿Será la misma solo una forma de acción?  El diccionario define la palabra alabar, “como el acto de decir cosas favorables de una persona o cosa.”  La biblia nos invita a alabar a Dios por lo menos 330 veces, el Salmo 150: 6 dice; “todo lo que respire alabe a Jehová.”

Al reflexionar en este tema algo es indudable, que alabar a Dios es de suma importancia, porque alabar a Dios es más que palabras aprendidas en nuestros labios.  Alabar a Dios es respetar y valorar el aliento de vida al despertar, es salir a la faena y despedirnos de nuestros seres amados con palabras de aliento que le dejen saber que Dios es bueno y que estará con ellos(as) en sus luchas diarias.  Alabar a Dios es respetar los cambios de la vida, las estaciones del año, el crecimiento humano y espiritual, recibiendo cada una de estas cosas con actitud positiva y con la suficiente fe, reconociendo que los mismos son parte del propósito que el creador tiene en nuestras vidas.  Alabar a Dios es respetar la ingenuidad de los niños(as), escuchando sus inquietudes y contestando con palabras que resalten a Dios en sus vidas, es extender la mano al prójimo y decirle que su vida vale la pena, porque Dios es su creador.  Entonces, cuando alabamos a Dios nos edificamos a nosotros(as) mismos(as) y cumplimos con el propósito del mismo llamado. Alabar a Dios, es armonía con El Creador, con el prójimo y la naturaleza, es dar gracias y cantar alabanzas no solo con nuestros labios pero con nuestra manera de vivir!

 

 We give thanks to God…by singing to Him

By Marianny Lantigua Cruz

 Psalm 147:7 says “sing out your thanks to Him; sing praises to our God…” Psalm 147:7 (LB).  It is a very clear and concise invitation asking us to be in communion with our Creator and praise Him. But what is the meaning of worship? What is its purpose? Is it just a form of action? The dictionary defines the word praise “as the act of saying positive things about a person or thing. ” The Bible invites us to praise God at least 330 times; Psalm 150 : 6 says, “everything that has breath praise Lord.”

 As we reflect on this topic something its undoubtedly, praising God is of utmost importance, because praising God is more than words learned in our lips. Praising God its about respecting and appreciating the breath of life upon waking up, its about going to work and saying goodbye to our loved ones with words of encouragement and letting him/her know that God is good and will be with them in their daily struggles. Praising God is to respect life changes, seasons, human and spiritual growth, receiving each one of these things with a positive attitude and with enough faith, recognizing that they are part of the creator’s purpose for our lives. Praising God is to respect the innocence of children, listening to their concerns and responding with words that highlight God in their lives, is to reach out to others and tell them that their life is worth it, because God is their creator.  Then, when we praise God we edify ourselves and fulfill the purpose of the call. Praising God is harmony with the Creator, with others and with nature; is to give thanks and sing praises not only with our lips but with our way of living!
