It can be hard to praise God at times like this, but it is good to remind ourselves and each other of who God is and that God is worthy of praise!!!! With that, there are many ways that we can praise God. We can sings God songs that praise Him. These songs help give us the words to praise God when we do not have them. We can pray to God and praise God for His love and His grace and His mercy which are abundant. We can tell someone else about our God who has given us light and life.
For me, there is something about flowers that make me praise God. They remind me that God is a scientist and an artist. God is a scientist because He created the consistent processes by which flowers grow and thrive. God is an artist as we see all of the beautiful colors that that are present in each of the flowers. At my house the daffodils and the crocuses are blooming and for that I praise God. When I praise God, I feel better than when I started and we could all use a little bit of that right now.
Blessings and I will catch you on Facebook live on Sunday at 10AM,
