But ... what if you don't feel like doing a happy dance or singing and praising?
I say go ahead and do it ...despite your feelings. Even if your praise begins with a conscious choice, believe me; the feeling will follow. Why do I say this? Because I've been there and done that.
In the Bible, the Psalms contain so many verses of praise. David wrote many of them ...despite many difficult and challenging circumstances.
All of a sudden, we heard this voice coming from the backseat singing out loud with Randy. Little Mary had her arms in the air, singing with such emotion raising her arms in genuine praise. It was truly a precious moment and memory. Jamie and I looked at each other with that knowing and thankful look.
Will you make the choice and step out and praise God?
