... life isn't very happy
... things don't work out the way you want them to
... the world seems to spin out of control
... finances are a struggle
... loved ones are straying
... illness prevails
... prayers seem to go unanswered
... loved ones pass on
... your children are prodigals
.... You could fill in the blank spaces with any number of things. But God.
God is still on the throne. God is still in control. God still loves us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. He loves us so much that He sent His Holy Spirit to comfort us. I don't know all the answers, but I know this.
No matter what I see,
no matter what I hear,
no matter what I feel,
I will yet praise Him.
There is No One else.
No One else to turn to.
No other god is truly God.
My loved ones are safe in His care.
I will continue to pray for them.
I choose to trust Him.
I choose peace.
I praise God in my pain.
I praise God in my sadness.
I praise God in hope.
I praise God in love
He is Love.
Praise the Lord.
Maybe this is not a happy time for you. Praise God. Choose to praise Him regardless of your circumstances, regardless of your pain. I call it defiant praise. We are defying Satan when we praise God through our pain. God is glorified, and He takes notice.
May you draw close to God. He promises to draw near to those who draw near to Him. James 4:8
I do pray that you will find peace and happiness in God's presence.
God bless you all.
