Sony’s Thoughts: Always Praising
As I was worshiping yesterday morning, my heart overflowed with thanksgiving to God. As I lifted my voice in song, I was again reminded that we are to praise God continually. Not just when we feel like it but even when we don’t. Praise can lift the spirit like nothing else can.
I hope I’m not over-beating the “praise” drum but it is a burden of my heart–to encourage others to get past their trials and heartaches to praise the God who is truly worthy. Praising can bring you to that point where God means everything to you. As you begin to praise Him, you realize He is all you truly need. It’s saying, “Lord, I love You no matter what. You alone are worthy of my praise and devotion.” When you can do that from the heart, even in the bad times, you will begin to grow closer to God like never before. It brings new perspective to Brian Free and Assurance’s song: “If it takes a valley to really know your grace and if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face, then turn this road I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place ’cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.”
And all God’s people said Amen.
