Praise Report

If you follow my blog regularly, you know that I have been undergoing some cardiac tests because of a few episodes of suddenly passing out. I am delighted to report that my stress test results are back and I don’t have a blockage of any kind in any of my arteries! Praise God!

I am still wearing a cardiac monitor for about another three weeks and have two ultrasound tests at the end of the month. I am confident that no matter the results, God is in control and will continue to take care of me. As I joked with my grandchildren this weekend, “My warranty expired about ten years ago and when I asked God to renew it, He told me that was the first thing He would do when I get to Heaven.”

Have a blessed day and remember that God knows all about you and loves you deeply.

Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful to be home again! I got home yesterday afternoon, got most of my things unpacked and just relaxed in the environment that I am used to. The last ten days had been stressful but I survived and one of the main reasons that I was able to hold it together was my dependence on the Lord and my attitude of gratitude. It’s hard to be grumpy when you are grateful! And I am so grateful for family, friends, health, God’s provision…the list goes on and on. So, today is a day to praise. Is everything going well in my world? No, I have family in the hurricane in Florida, but both have assured me that they are okay. I even heard from my brother early this morning. They are on the backside of the storm and expecting possible tornadoes after the hurricane passes later today. But I am thankful that God is watching over both of them and confident that He will take care of them as He sees fit. He is God and there in none other!

Have a blessed day of gratitude to the Lord for all He has done, but mostly for Who He is!

Great Is The Lord

Today is a day to worship and praise the Lord. Yes, we can still pray and ask for our needs to be met, but mostly, I want to focus on who God is and how great He is. It is part of His character that often becomes overlooked because I am so busy telling him my problems. Time to just reflect!

We need to tell each other about the great things God has done. In the telling, we are building our own faith as well as that of others.

Yes! Just this verse is enough to focus on for the day!

Great is the Lord by Michael W. Smith

Rejoicing During Holy Week

There are many praise songs about Resurrection Week, so I didn’t know what to choose to share with you. Instead, here are some favorite Scriptures praising the Lord. Take time to meditate on God and how truly great He is, not for what He has done for you personally, but just because He is God and worthy to be praised.
