In Psalm 34, David writes, “I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.” (NLT version)
It has been a while since I have written and to be perfectly honest, I go through seasons. Seasons where I don’t know if I would say that I am not inspired, because my inspiration is God, but I would say my focus is elsewhere during those times. As I sit here at lunch today, late as always, I am thinking on the Lord’s goodness and all that He has brought me through and it occurs to me once again, that I have let the circumstances of my life dictate whether or not I am writing as I should be. I know, none of you ever have this issue right? Though during those seasons I find other ways of lifting up Jesus because I would like to feel that I live my life daily for Him, I know that I am supposed to be writing. For that, I must repent. You see, it seems that when I start to write as I should be doing, trials always come. The one thing that I know to be true though is that trials will always come regardless of whether I am writing or just sitting still. If that is the case, then I should push through and write even when I am dealing with things such as my health.
David says that he will Praise the Lord at all times. He wrote this during one of the most stressful and trying times in his life and yet he found the strength to pen these words so that one, it glorified the Lord; two, so that many years later it would be a benefit to whoever read it. I apologize to all who read my blogs for the times that I have not written or communicated what was happening in life because we all know that each of our lives are a book that should be read by others to bring encouragement or example. I will strive to do better in what God has called me to and I pray that in some small measure it will help others when they are going through struggles. In a later post I will let you in on all that has been happening but for today, I will praise Him at all times. This is about God and all He has done and all He is yet to do. He has been so faithful and I want to be faithful too. I pray you all have a blessed day and I pray that God pour out His favor on each of you.
