Despite every ounce of adversity that I am facing today, Lord, I have elected to give praise unto You, my God and Father. I have elected to still surrender my everything unto You. I have elected to continue to trust in Your ability to do exceeding, abundantly, far above anything I ask or think within my life.
“…From the end of the earth will I cry unto, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the Rock that is higher than I…” (Ps. 61:2).
Guide our hearts, O Lord,
To praise You in all things
For You are to be adored
You, who are the King of kings
Your grace has been succored
And death no longer stings
So many things about You unexplored
Peace to our heart Your Word brings.
So guide our hearts, O Lord!

I will bless the Lord at all times. Here, I sense a very determined resolve of the psalmist David. We are not to merely talk about and agree with the importance to bless the Lord. We ought to make a personal decision and commitment that we ourselves will bless and…

Like most kids, I recall asking my parents “why” a lot. At times it may have been for the sake of learning or curiosity, but more often than not, it was an attempt to get out of something. Why do we have to go to the grocery store now?Why do I have to do that chore?Why can’t I do my homework later?
As an adult, that question can morph into asking God Why does my life look this way? Why did you make me this way, or allow certain limitations? Unlike having the relentless energy of a child, I’ve found this mode of asking, always comparing is quite tiring. And just like when I was a kid, it’s often an attempt to get out of something.
