*****Today y’all have the special treat of reading a post written by my sweet daughter Audrey! She is my jewel and I am so proud that she has decided to take a leap of faith and start writing for this blog. Please show her some love!!!!*****
Good morning my lovelies!
On this beautiful morning I'm going to ask you to take time out of your normal routine and praise our God and creator,
"The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise Him..."
The Bible gives us instruction and examples on praising our Elohim (see Isaiah 55:13 Isaiah 24:14-16 and Psalms 54:6-7 and many more.)
I challenge you to make a list of things that you praise Elohim, your creator for.
If you're like me and you work best with music, I would suggest Matt Redman's album 10,000 Reasons, it is and amazing album full of songs that praise our God, Elohim.
And if your stuck or just need a little bit of an inspiration to get the ball rolling, I would turn your Bibles open to Psalms 20 it holds just a few of Gods wonderful promises for us.
Here are some of mine:
I praise my Elohim for.......
1. The color PINK!
Honestly think about your favorite color, food, or animal no my life wouldn't end if the color pink never existed, but it just adds a little bit of extra happiness to my life.
2. Creating every single star in the sky, and even knowing them all by name.
3. The beautiful family I was blessed with and any future family members that have not yet entered my life.
4. That He is not shocked when we disobey Him.
When God made a covenant with Abram (Genesis 15) that he may have a son from his own body, and his descendants will be as many as the stars in the sky. But Abrams wife Sarai went and gave Abram her maidservant as a wife (Genesis 16), and the maidservant bore Abram a son. God of course was hurt that Abram disobeyed Him, but He knew that it was going to happen. And even after Abram disobeyed God, God kept His word ( Genesis 18 and 21) and Sarah bore Abraham (name change in Genesis 17:5 and 17:15) a son, Isaac, and indeed Abraham's descendants became as many as the stars into sky.
5. His amazing love for sinners.
" for God so loved the world that he gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
6. I praise God for all the trials, struggles and pains that He allows to come into my life, for I know that He has a plan for my life and all the hard times I go through are for a purpose.
Whenever you are discouraged or upset with God, Take put your list and praise your God, Elohim.
