Today is an easy day to praise the Lord. The sun is shining, I can see God’s hand at every turn while feeling His love and protection. There are days it is not so easy though, yet praise is not an option. It is a necessity.
I wish I were better at consistently praising Him, even when everything around me looks like it’s falling apart. This is an area God does help me in though. He often reminds me that, even when I can’t see it, He is working. He loves me and, no matter what happens, I am still His beloved child.
I am so grateful to have the best Father in the world. His love for me is not measured by how successful I am. He simply wants me to trust Him and serve Him with all my heart. I am still learning how to do that as well, but I am thankful that He doesn’t give up. He constantly encourages me to try, try again.
I expect I will never stop learning until the day He takes me Home but I pray I will pass my tests with flying colors. He is so good!
A beautiful hymn by Fernando Ortega to give Praise to the Lord the Almighty today.
Amen – we need encouragement and continual reminders of Who is our strength. Not within ourselves do we find the comfort to go on when life is hard; but in Christ! He has gone to prepare a place for us in His Father’s house and He is coming back to take us there, to live with us on the new earth for all time. Let us, therefore, not grow weary in well doing but continue to exhort one another unto good works, until He returns.
