Hoping continually and Praising His name

I felt the need to post about hoping continually. So I found a verse that said that, and in the rest of the verses were so uplifting and praiseful. I want to share them here: Psalm 71:14-24 (New King James Version) "But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And Your salvation all the day, For I do not know their limits. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only. O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come. Also Your righteousness, O God, is very high, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You? You, who have shown me great and severe troubles, Shall revive me again, And bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness, And comfort me on every side. Also with the lute I will praise You— And Your faithfulness, O my God! To You I will sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel. My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You, And my soul, which You have redeemed. My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long; For they are confounded, For they are brought to shame Who seek my hurt. " Now think about these verses. Doesn't it just make you want to rejoice and praise Him? I love it! We need to be talking about His righteousness all the day long. You know that song "And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love.."ect.? Well I want to be known as a follower of Jesus Christ, by my actions, my words, and my love. I want to get to the point where all I speak about is my Lord. Where only praises come off my lips. Not gossip, or mean things. Or even worthless things. I want to hope continually and praise continually. Don't you?
