Sometimes it is so easy to forget that praising God is a commandment! Sometimes as humans it is so easy to get caught up in our own problems we forget how great God is. If we have a horrible day or get some bad news it is so easy to forget all about praising God.
Yesterday was a stressful day for my family. I got a phone call that my daughter had fallen at Pre-School and had hurt her arm. I went into panic mode! We rushed her to the hospital to be examined. Later after x-rays had been finished we found out she had fractured her elbow. I was so upset. As we were leaving the hospital we walked past a room that had a little girl on a hospital bed with at least a dozen nurses and doctors surrounding her. I immediately prayed for the little girl! It really made me realize that my daughters injury could have been a lot worse and I have so much to praise God for. I praise God that it is just a fracture. I praise God that she didn't have to have surgery! I praise God because I know he was with my daughter on the playground yesterday!
We just really need to take the focus off of ourselves and our problems and think about God. We need to remember the accounts in the Bible of how He took care of his people and remember the ways he takes care of us! Think about
His creation- from the grains of sand to the mountains. God is absolutely amazing!!! Always remember to praise him!!! Through the good and the bad!!
Praise The Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary... praise Him for His acts of power... praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet... let everything that has breath praise The Lord.
