Have you ever had one of those days? You know what I mean: everything that can possibly go wrong does, in fact, go wrong. Well, I have had a few years worth of those days strung back-to-back. Or, that’s one way of looking at it.
A string of cancers, three surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, back problems, on top of financial troubles, setbacks, car problems. I could go on, but you get it.
Anytime I feel sorry for myself, God reminds me that I am still alive. I have recovered from two cancers and will recover again. My back problems are painful but minor by comparison. My financial issues… He’s never let me starve. Car problems? He provides.
I look at God and I smile. He takes care of me. Sure, I’d rather He arrange it for me to win the lottery, but HE PROVIDES. I smile. I have to. In spite of my fears, doubt, and pain, He is faithful.
So on days like this… in times like this, I smile and, before long, my smile turns to praise. Sometimes, I simply have to praise Him.
I just want to praise the Lord
I just want to dance and celebrate yeah
I just want to bless my God
Lift my hands and sing (repeat)
Heavens and the earth proclaim
All the nations bow before You
All creation shouts Your praise
The majesty, honour and glory of God
