The sweetness of praise

Anne’s chocolate and strawberry cake.

Although, sweetness and certain foods are often congruent in my mind, it’s a temporary thing.

The sweetness of praise has been coloring all my perspective of late.

It began on Wednesday.

My physical condition was creating a need within me.

I needed scripture.

Balm to my soul and so I turned to Psalms.

There is something so sweet about praising God.

Especially, during a time of struggle or pain.

As my week continued I found even more comfort in the Psalms.

For my physical condition had me laying on the couch, unable to do much.

Yet, my soul found such joy is praising God.

To simply lay all my desires into the Lord’s hands and focus on praising Him.

To put off the things I couldn’t do and instead focus on Jesus.

To worship Him with each break of day, to praise His amazing attributes throughout the day, to lift up prayers and praise at the close of the day.

And to choose to trust Him no matter how I am feeling.

It’s been a sweetness of the soul, nothing outward could possibly bring.

I’m finally feeling a bit better.

And I’m so thankful to God.

He knew all of this was going to occur and He provided for me in incredible ways.

The Word of the Lord is true.

It is my refuge in times of trouble.

Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand.
Psalms 20:6 NKJV

Praise the Lord, for He is good!

I hope you will choose to dine on the Lord’s sweetness and find new ways to praise Him in Your every day.

May your heart be filled with a long lasting taste of God and His goodness!

Psalm 34:8 NKJV — Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
