Wednesday, April 18, 2012
We all have days where we just feel like the world is caving in on us. We may have health issues. We may have money problems. We may have relationships where we are feeling used or neglected and wonder if anyone really cares about us at all. God wants us to worship Him in the storms. When we take time to worship God when we are struggling, He will draw us close and show us how to get through whatever we are dealing with.
Psalm 30:11-12 “You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know You can turn our sadness into joy. We know we have to trust in You and continue to worship You in the good times and the bad. We know we can get through anything when we stay focused on You. praise You in all things and never give up. Help us through the storms and thank You for all You do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
