You know, sometimes we just don’t feel like praising God. The drain’s clogged, your kid has poison ivy, a black snake is eating your chickens’ eggs, what you plant doesn’t grow, the kids track dirt or whatever in, the car won’t start, the air conditioner is broken, it can be any number of things. There’s always going to be something, isn’t there? It’s just one thing after another. Ever wonder why?
We truly have had a rough time for the last few years. BUT GOD has brought us through every single trial. In fact, He has shown himself so faithful, I just don’t get as upset or angry or worried as I used to. I know that most of the things I worry about are out of my control. They are totally in God’s control. He WILL take care of the problems one way or another. My job is to pray and let Him be in control.
So we pray, we give it all back to him to carry, and we praise the Lord even when we don’t feel like it through Jesus!
