“Praise be to God who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His love from me.”
Its been one of those thoughtst that has gotten in under my skin as I have journeyed through the Bible this year and written thoughts for the day. Praising God. Praising God for who He is aside from circumstances, upbeat or tough. Allowing God to be known and to make Himself known to me so that I can praise Him and keep on praising Him when everythign else feels like I am backed up against a brick wall.
Praying that that thought stays and grows with me beyond this year. That praise becomes a habit. A daily habit. An hourly habit. And in so doing I see more of Him, more of what He is doing and what is important to Him.
