Ever feel down? Start seeing the negative in things and all of a sudden the negative is jumping out at you and you’re left sitting in a pit. I think today is a good day to praise. I’m needing a good shot of Psalm 145 right now.

“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
His greatness no one can fathom.”

The dead of winter… make that the freezing cold dead of winter can get me down along with struggles and trials in my life. I need to be picked up out of that funk with a spring-fresh refocus on God’s greatness, compassion, provisions and grace.

I know that while I am enduring the sub-zero temps, spring is on its way. I also know that while I’m enduring trials through the growth process in my heart, God’s goodness is on its way as well.

At times He calls me to wait, something I am not inclined to do, and its all too easy to give up in the process. The song by John Waller “While I’m Waiting” encourages my heart so much. Psalm 147 reminds me of the importance of worship, especially while I’m waiting.

“How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!”

Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and listen to “While I’m Waiting” by John Waller here:

What encourages your heart to praise?
