I can’t even begin to tell you the roller coaster my life has been in the past few months. I’ve probably experienced more tragedy and been confronted with more bad news in the last few weeks than I can remember. I’m amazed at the amount of “sticks and stones” the devil has thrown my way.
However he forgets that
I know when we are going through stuff it’s easy to be upset and in the midst of tears wonder why God won’t do anything. Has he suddenly become weak, crippled or Is He just ignoring me? You wonder. Well sweetie here’s some truth
To be honest, I’ve never been good at math. It’s never been my strong point so when I hear the word COUNT it just rings a bad bell and the funny thing is what I’m expected to count is Joy. In pain? Amidst confusion? Questions? I should find x?
Yes count the joy the Holy Spirit whispers silent but strong: Count the Joy. In other words count your blessings. So I decided to try
Then I really started counting the things I have to be thankful for. They started out in trickles and I’m not there yet but I’m sure with consistency the floodgates will open.
So the first thing I’m thankful for? Well I just got in from a worship meeting in church tonight with Joe praize and I’m thankful that I can worship God. I can forget everything, everyone and just fall flat on my face with abandon in worship. I thank God that I can worship. I know that wasn’t what you were expecting but the truth is it felt like heaven on earth tonight and I just feel so thankful that I can connect with God in Spirit and in truth. That I can open my mouth and give God joy by pouring my love on him.
That I can worship in English, in tongues, in my understanding and void of my understanding. The important thing is that God understands that my heart full of love and gratitude just pours out to him.
Imagine if we didn’t have the ability to worship
I know I couldn’t survive it. I just couldn’t. So I’m thankful for worship. Speaking of worship I’ve got something exciting for me now. When Women Worship 2016 is here
Details on the meaning, dates and ministers tomorrow.
Thank me later.
Let me get a quick shut eye. We’ll talk tomorrow and maybe for the next 29 days.
