Carried by praise

Psalm 28:7 KJV — The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

I’ll be honest.

This week has been challenging.

It wasn’t one thing especially.

More like a bad knot in a favorite necklace.

It’s complicated, and just pulling on one part does nothing but tighten it.

But as I walked through the week, I found my heart and soul being carried.

With each difficult circumstance I found my soul praising God.

I didn’t always even think about it.

Often, I’d just begin saying, ” Jesus, You alone are worthy.”

Sometimes it was, “Almighty God, Most High, You alone are worthy.”

Other moments it was, “Lord Jesus, to You belongs all honor and power and praise!”

But a few times, when my heart was troubled more deeply than the others it was simply, “God, I know You are worthy. I trust You.”

And in this my heart was carried through.

Although the week is ending, I’m not certain the circumstances have.

I don’t know exactly how to untangle the knot, but I know who does.

And I know, no matter what He has my best interests at heart.

He will see me through.

His way is best.

I trust Him.

And I praise His holy name.

Psalm 7:17 KJV — I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
