I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD. Psalm 69:30-31 (New International Version)
Do you want to please God?
Do you want to satisfy God?
Do you want to make God smile?
If you do, then
For your body…praise Him.
For your mind…praise Him.
For your senses…praise Him.
For His love…praise Him.
For His mercy…praise Him.
For His goodness…praise Him.
Praise Him for everything.
For your struggles…praise Him.
For your difficulties…praise Him.
For your frustrations…praise Him.
Because He is worthy to be praised.
In spite of your struggles, He has progressed you. Praise Him.
In spite of your frustrations, He has protected you. Praise Him.
In spite of your difficulties, He has provided for you. Praise Him.
And then take a moment to imagine the big smile that is on your Heavenly Father’s face as a result of your heartfelt praise.
