A Celebration of the Cells

My ToothbrushToday as I was brushing my teeth, my gums felt as if they were throwing a party in my mouth.  I don’t know why today, on just a regular Thursday, my gums would feel so happy to be brushed, but they did.

And upon this happy sensation I realized that every cell in my body is hardwired to celebrate, and it’s God who gave them that DNA.  EVERY SINGLE fiber of my being knows how to glorify God!!!

Yes, my gums were responding to a good teeth-brushing, but more fundamentally, the cells in my mouth were responding to goodness.  And because all good things come from, originate from God, they were delighting with a response from and for God.

And so, while I was brushing my teeth, I was not only having a “heavenly” experience, I was receiving a theological lesson of which I’ve known in my head to be a truth, but never had such a revelation about–EVERY SINGLE particle of creation knows how to respond to, give glory to, celebrate, extol, honor, and advertise God and His great goodness!


Sing GOD a brand-new song!
Earth and everyone in it, sing!
Sing to GOD–worship GOD!
For God is great, and worth a thousand Hallelujahs.
Bravo, GOD, Bravo!
Everyone join in the great shout: Encore!
In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might.
Bring gifts and celebrate,
Bow before the beauty of GOD,
Then to your knees–everyone worship!
Get out the message–GOD Rules!  
Let’s hear it from Sky,
With Earth joining in,
And a huge round of applause from Sea.
Let Wilderness turn cartwheels,
Animals, come dance,
Put every tree in the forest in the choir
~from Psalm 96 (Message)~

In Psalm 96 all of creation is told to join in celebrating God.  Today, my gums did the happy dance.  How are your cells joining in the BRAVO! to God?

Have a celebratory day!
