    Default Praising God, unapologetically

    I am praising God and sharing this praise.
    My family has a long history of aches and headaches.
    But we had the best quasi-large family gathering (no fat jokes! ).
    Anyway, I observed my cousins' growth in the Lord and
    accepted a needed conversation with different family members.
    My grandmother, nearing 86, was a joy. She is a rock of prayer, and an example of perseverance.
    Well, she was on my heart and God led her to my doorsteps. So grateful.
    My mother relaxed. She normally works through parties, but this time she rested.
    My aunt got time away from "the boys," receiving a little gals-only time. She seemed to like it.
    And it was so special seeing the men bond, eventually wrapping the night up in transparent prayers and shared thanks.

    Lord, I know that trials are everyday, even when we think we are "in the clear."
    But this does not mean I should worry, or hesitate to give you praise for "good times" or "better moments."
    The fact that stands when all else cannot: You are Faithful.
    For this, regardless of what a day may hold, Thank You.

    Now, please help us to repent where needed, to love you, and express your love toward others, withstanding the Enemy-- as the Body of Christ. Your will be don, in Jesus' name, amen.

    God is so good, even when everything else is bad.
    But because He is that good-- not everything else is bad.
    In fact, there really is a quite a bit of good.
    And i praise Him for all of it.
    But even when I cannot see or otherwise sense the good,
    I pray that I praise.
    Not out of habit only,
    but out of honest thanks.
    I hope I trust in the One Who is my Hope.
    And trust that more will Desire God more than what this world has to offer.
    Therefore, if you are in pain, of mind, spirit, relationship, or in body--
    Rejoice in God during the the various trials.
    God will See you through.
    In Jesus' name, hallelujah!
    Amen.
    I appreciate your ideas, advice, and prayers. I mean to love Jesus.

    My mom just told me, "there is a peace about you" that I have not sensed before.
    Praise God. That was one of best comments I've ever heard-- from anyone.
    It is not because I am quiet, or calm, or altogether smooth-sailing.
    It is to his glory alone, that someone would make such a comment.
    Now, I pray that the peace of Christ continues to fill me-- and His
    Presence is felt by others... including myself.

    Praise God, because He can calm the seas.
    He is with us in the turbulence we experience.
    Even when the storm rages, through Christ, we can have Peace.
    I appreciate your ideas, advice, and prayers. I mean to love Jesus.
