Today's Devotional Thought

Get Your Praise On

I love my kids dearly, but yesterday was one of those days. I think you know what I mean when I say, it was a day! And by about 4 o'clock, I was done. Big things. Little things. All things rattled my mind and heart yesterday. I was fighting hard all day to keep a positive attitude. And by about 4 o'clock, I really thought I was losing that battle. And I just wanted to end the day and start a new day.

I dare say I am not alone in having days like that.

And that is when the Lord just swept down and gave me something to cheer my heart. Oh how I love it when he does that. Only he can really do it. And he did.

I was driving back from the grocery store and was still very discouraged by the day. And I went through my music playlists looking for something to encourage my heart and lighten my mood. There is nothing like singing in the car and I needed it badly. I wanted to turn it up loud and sing with all my might.

And that is when the perfect song came on. It randomly {sort of} came on and it was just what my heart needed. When the lyrics started, I just felt my heart lighten. And as I got to the chorus, I felt such joy come over my spirit as my focus shifted back to the Lord and I worshipped with everything in my weary heart. At the end of a really bad day, the Lord lightened my load by shifting my focus back to him and by helping me get my praise on.

And with a big ole smile on my face and my right hand raised through the sunroof, joy returned to my day because of the song blasting through my car and resounding in my heart.

I don't know what you may be going through today, but I want to share my song with you. May it put a smile on your face and in your heart in the middle of your burdens, weariness, or bad day. Oh girlfriends, there is nothing like worshipping the Lord in the middle of life's storms. I know it sometimes feels like the last thing you want to do, but there is nothing like shifting your focus back to him by getting your praise on!

Enjoy the song. May it brighten your day and lighten your load today. Have a great Tuesday and girlfriends, keep on worshipping the Lord!!

Memorize this verse today:

"Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with Joyful songs."
~Psalm 100:2
