Praise All Day

is there a bad time to praise the Lord? If you wanted to take this verse literally, you might be off the hook overnight. Taken figuratively, as long as you are awake, it’s a good time to praise the Lord.

And it’s not like you have to keep inventing reasons to praise, because you are literally surrounded by some very good reasons to praise the Lord and those often.

I praise the Lord because I have a loving wife of 24 years who had not abandoned me but confessed her love for me everyday. I have four talented amazing children who surprise me everyday with their insights. I worship at s great church, have a rewarding career. I am literally surrounded by blessings everyday.

And I still get down.

I still mope that I don’t have everything i want. 🙁 I still find reasons to complain. 🤨 And the importance of this verse is not lost on me today. I needed this one today too.

May I simply send out this reminder that praising the Lord is part of our necessary work every day. God would not have us dwell on our sorrows and become sour, but dwell on His praises and remind us of our future. We have every reason, every day to praise the Lord. So let us Praise the Lord!

God bless you today.
