Sad days are cheered up with Psalm 100
O.K. .................................some days i get sad.
So I will clothe myself in Praise. One of the most influential Psalms in my growing up years was Psalm 100. The most amazing thing happens when I start thinking about and saying out loud all the things I'm grateful for. My heart that was once burdened and sad or lonely becomes alive filled with joy and peace and contentment. What the world needs now is Love? or thankfulness?? To have a great full day Be grateful all day is my motto. So start today to really be truly grateful for where your at, who you are becoming, who you share life with, what's all around you that makes up your world. One of my fave songs is "I ain't gonna take it anymore" by Faith Hill. Why? Because the part where she sings about coming out from beneath that rock and breathing.....that's what ungratefulness really is. Living under a rock is lonely and suffocating and depressing. So climb on out breathe the air realize YOU ARE A MIRACLE! and act out your grateful heart.
1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. 2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5 For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations.
Please God help us to be who you designed us to be. Thank you God for this time in my life. I put my trust in You. You are my strength and I love you because you first loved me. Everyday it's not one day at a time its moment by moment. But your never alone! The sadness dissipates in the brightness of truth.
