Praise God

Rainer Maria Rilke once said: "The more the soul praises, the stronger it grows."

I just got back from several blessed days of vacation and time at a conference. It always gives me perspective when I get away. Especially this time. One of the things I came back thinking about is how I need to praise God more, in the good and in the bad.

Praise God through whatever happens. It's so easy to thank the Lord when blessings come pouring in. But praising God in the midst of turmoil is powerful as well. It calms the soul and glorifies God when you can step back from within the storm, look to Him and say:

 

"I don't know how to make it through this, and I don't know why it's happening. But I know that you provide, that you are sovereign and that you love me. I praise You God."

 

Easier said than done, absolutely. But something worth trying? Yes.

"He is your praise, He is your God, who performed for you those great awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes." Deuteronomy 10:21.

Have a blessed day!
