Yesterday morning, in worship, we sang one of my favorite praise songs. The song reminds me of God’s faithfulness in all circumstances.
When things go wrong in life, which can be quite frequently in this crazy world, we sometimes find ourselves losing faith in the strength of God, Our Father. We fall into a pit of despair, crying out, “Lord, where are you? Why aren’t you fixing this?”
I’m sure we’ve all been there….facing that moment when life seems overwhelming and we can’t find the answers we seek. I have found that one of the very best things I can do during those times is praise the Lord.
The Bible tells us that with prayer and thanksgiving we are to make our requests known to God. The Lord Jesus knows that when we offer up our praise, it brings glory to His Name. And it brings peace and quiet to our restless hearts. In every life, there is much for which to be thankful. I have been known to take a pen to paper and make a long list, over several days, of each small thing for which I am thankful. That list could go on and on. And it always bring encouragement to my heart and mind.
