From February 24, 2021.
Isn't this morning absolutely gorgeous?! I LOVE the sunshine and clear sky in the morning; especially when it is crisp.
I had 30 degrees and frost on my windshield this morning at my place. There was a bit of fog down by the river, but otherwise just so pretty! I praised God all the way to work this morning; which honestly I do regardless of the weather
Where is your favorite place to praise God? Or favorite way to praise God?
I love to sing praises. and I love to sing at church. But my favorite place to sing praises is in my car, by myself. I can just pour out my heart to God in song and spoken word and not worry about what others might think, because sometimes I get so emotional I get a big lump in my throat and cannot form the words, but I can mouth-them or think them.
Hebrews 13:15 says "Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that confess his name."
There are also times I have no song or no word because my heart is heavy, but, I am assured that during those times the Holy Spirit intercedes on my behalf. Such a wonderful promise! Let's look at it.
Romans 8:26 "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." Isn't that beautiful?!
Whatever your circumstances, praise God. Thank Him for what He has done in your life. Thank Him for what He is doing in your life and yes, thank Him for what He will do in the future. We can rest in the knowledge that He loves us and absolutely wants the best for us.
God bless you today. Enjoy the sunshine and remember: Keep looking up! Jesus is coming soon!
