The Rejuvenating Activity of Praise

Praise belongs to the King
It has been said, “prayer and praise change people, not God.” What happens to us when we offer praise to God?  To praise God essentially requires us to willingly put God at the center of our lives. We must surrender all of ourselves to Spirit.

Psalm 80 Look Within

Inside Every...
As we take our spiritual journey, we should expect to have trials and tribulations along the way. These experiences help us broaden and strengthen our understanding and faith. There are times, however, when we are caught off guard by these troubles and instead of looking within for guidance; we are seduced into relying on external signs for information and direction. Undoubtedly when we make these errors, we experience a great deal of suffering in our lives.

Psalm 56 Turn It Over to God

hand.
When we find ourselves in any circumstance that is overwhelming, we must remember that we always have the answer at hand. There is always a lesson to be learned. There is no bad or evil experience. We need only to turn it over to God and all will be made clear.

Psalm 103 Gratitude

gratitude. =)
It is important to approach each day with an attitude of gratitude.  Gratitude is not something we express only when things are going well or only for those experiences we enjoy.  We must be grateful for everything.  That includes the challenges we all face.  If we can take a Christ-like view of our lives we will see blessings in every situation, no matter what the appearance is.  This is the secret to health, happiness, and prosperity.
