10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 8:  Thankful for Praise and Worship Music

Psalm 95 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 95:2

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

Today I am incredibly thankful for praise and worship music. Being able to praise and worship God through song is so uplifting and inspiring. No matter what is going on in my life at that moment whether it’s good, bad or indifferent it all just seem to melt away instantly as I begin to focus on God. It doesn’t just have to be at church. It might be at home or in the car. Sometimes I’ll be driving, feeling some type of way and the perfect song comes on the radio and it reminds me that God is always with me. When I sing along I feel connected to my Savior and am so grateful for His love and mercy and thankful for His presence in my life.

Smile, Jesus Loves You!

Proverbs 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:13

A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day.

Even though there may be things going on in our lives that make us feel sad, we cannot let them bring us down. There is still good in the world, there are still good people and there is still a reason to smile. If you’re having a bad day, feeling stressed out or feeling blue think about all the good things in your life and all that God has done for you. Sing joyfully to the Lord and let Him refresh your spirit. Count your blessings and not your troubles and remember, Jesus loves you and will never leave you and that’s more than enough reason to smile.
