Chapter-a-Day Nehemiah 12

Seriously. When it came time for the dedication of the wall, they tracked down and brought in the Levites from all their homes in Jerusalem to carry out the dedication exuberantly: thanksgiving hymns, songs, cymbals, harps, and lutes. Nehemiah 12:27 (MSG)

I've been around the block a few times, and I've been to my share of services in all sorts of different churches. I've seen a lot of things dedicated to God: children, buildings, individuals, groups of people, objects, instruments, rooms, houses, etc. In observing all of these dedications, there are a lot of adjectives I would use to describe what I observed.

Sadly, the word exuberantly is not one of them. 

God, help me not to be afraid to worship you exuberantly.
