I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30
During this holiday season remember the important things. When the family arrives, peer deeply into their eyes. Listen intently. Hug gently and lovingly. Laugh with all your might. Make a memory. And finally, give the Lord praise for all the blessings!
Often when going through certain circumstances, I find myself writing. Dark blue words spill on tear-stained paper as my frustrations leave me on the floor. But, as I continue to write, something begins to happen. My prayers become praises when I am reminded of His Faithfulness.
As the words flow, they become part of me, never to be forgotten. Then, when life, once again, throws me for a loop, the words and music come out of nowhere and brings peace to my troubled soul.
Do songs come to mind when you’re in the midst of trials?
Prayer of Praise
Oh Lord, how I love You. I will lift my voice in praise to You. You are Faithful. Your mercies are new every morning! In times of trouble, You are there. I am not alone. Though I walk through darkened places, You are my light. I will not fear. When the enemy rages, You are my shield and buckler. I am safe from harm. Great is Thy Faithfulness! Great is Thy love and mercy! Let Thy name be forever praised.
