Psalm 118:34 "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
So....answer the question in your heart. Are you really rejoicing today or are you grumbling and complaining. I know we all have things we could sit and have a "pity party" about. We could grumble and complain about the things we are facing today. But is that glorifying the Lord? God tells us we are to "Do all things without murmurings and disputings:" Philippians 2:14. We should not put our life on hold while murmuring and complaining but we are not to sit around and complain about what we are going through either. We have so much to rejoice about today.
Are you alive today? Praise His name!! Were you able to get out of bed today? Praise His name!! Are you breathing? Praise His name!! Do you have sight in your eyes? Praise His name!! Do you have a voice on your tongue? Praise His name!! Is your spouse alive and well? Praise His name!! Are your children (if you have any) alive and well? Praise His name!! Did you car start up this morning? Praise His name!! Do you still have your job? Praise His name!! Has God blessed you with the ability to do your daily duties? Praise His name!! Is there food in the cupboards? Praise His name!! Is there a roof over your head? Praise His name!! Are you saved and on your way to Heaven without an eternal destination of the Lake of Fire being your home? Praise His name!!
We have so much to praise Him for. So many people got up this morning without these things being present in their life. Praise His name it wasn't you!! And even if it were to be you tomorrow...praise His name anyway!! He is worthy of our praise and our worship for just being Who He is!! He is God and Creator of all!! He created you didn't He? I'm so glad He did!! Have a great day and rejoice in it even if you don't feel like rejoicing!! And if you think your life looks dark and dreary and you just see how you could praise Him...go to Sis. Amy Wilhoite's blog site and read her story of her battle with leukemia. She is still praising God and the doctors have given her not much time longer to be here with her family. God has sent that lady's testimony and story our way so we can have someone to look to as a testimony of God's grace and His strength. When we think we have it rough...there is ALWAYS someone else that has it rougher.
