Praise Paves the Way to Peace

Praise requires the release of self-focus 

as we set aside our plans to correct ourselves, 

and place all our trust in God.

Praise isn’t something we create within ourselves; 

it is a response that comes 

when we turn our eyes to Him. 

When we praise God, tears may flow, 

heartaches may be revealed, 

and hidden sorrows come to light,

but when the discomfort has passed 

we experience peace.


Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
--Psalm 103:2-5 

--From day 39
