I woke up with a song this morning.
It was playing over and over in my heart.
With it was a lovely memory of singing in our church’s Sunday school.
This song is one I learned there.
I knew it was a scripture so I looked up the words I can remember.
Here’s what I found:
Jeremiah 32:17 NKJV — ‘Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.
As a child the last line was my favorite.
Nothing is too difficult for You.
He’s able to do anything.
Of course life and learning have taught me there are a good number of things He chooses not to do, but we can trust Him that His way is perfect.
So, armed with this lovely reminder, I’m stepping into my day looking for opportunities to praise God.
I started with praise for this beautiful rental we live in.
Then to my blessings.
The rose blooming on the table.
The tulips in the garden.
The humming bird feeder.
Tea out of my Grandmother’s china.
My wonderful family.
Warm fuzzy socks.
Yes, there’s plenty of opportunities to get bogged down in the “what in the world is happening?!”.
But I’m choosing to praise God today.
No matter what occurrence may come, I know that Jesus will be with me.
That’s worth praising God for!
