Just recently received news that had my anxiety flaring back to life but then I listened to a video about Praise… praising God no matter what is going on as He has done so much and it made me think…..
Oh and to pray, let’s not forget that!!! Listening to Dr. Melody Stevens in a prayer walker challenge just really inspired me to change my attitude and focus on praise!!!
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
And his courts with praise
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generationsPsalms 100:4-5
God’s timing is impeccable… even when we can’t see it. Last night I was focused on such negative thinking and had to work hard to focus on faith and prayer. I didn’t even think about praising that should have been my first instinct!!! What? Praising is the best antidote for getting out of our heads, out of anxiety, out of fear or depression…
Praise the Lord
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good his love endures foreverPsalm 106:1
Praising is the best way for us to focus on God and put things in perspective
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise and rejoice and sing praisePsalm 98:4
How are you praising God today and what are you praising/thanking Him for?
I’m praising God for having us in His hands… for taking care of all our needs; for loving me no matter what and showing me His peace everyday…
Praise!! Praise! Praise!!
