Are you running into closed doors? Do you feel like things are moving too slowly? Are you having trouble hearing from the Lord? Maybe prayers aren't being answered as quickly as you had hoped. We all have times like these. This may seem a little odd and somewhat unnatural, but you need to break into praise! When all hope is gone and you've done everything in your own power, it's time to turn to the only one who can really do anything about your situation anyway, it's time to turn to Jesus! There are days where I wake up and feel that I'm at a dead end and I'm not sure what to write about. That's when I turn to Him with praise and my attention to worship. The door opens, my head clears of its clutter, and the words seem to just roll out and onto the page. This is your reminder that it's all about Him anyway, so if you start your day there He will show you why you need to keep on keeping on, even through adversity.
Start here with your praise:
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalms 100:1-5
