Joy in the morning

I am so thankful for God. It is odd that I have lived so much of my life an ungrateful creature. I mean I would not have even been created had it not been for God. Odd how I get so caught up being mad at Him and the way the world works some days. I still wonder on occasion why He did not just restart after the whole Garden of Eden apple thing. It still seems a bit like the most loving response. Why I am not grateful He didn’t so I can know Him, I will never know.

I knew today was going to be an interesting day. You see yesterday God talked to me about complaining. I know He is dealing with me right now about joy and praise and worship… and complaining. Sometimes I complain and call it being real, but the last few days I have gotten to face truth.

I got ready for work dancing to the Hallelujah chorus. I love modern music, but I am telling you Handel had something going for him. Over the last few days I have been singing “How can I keep from singing His praise?” then adding “when I have seen Him”. I think the only response to experiencing God is shouts of praise and thanksgiving and a life of worship.

I have been praying a lot the last few days also. Harder than I thought I knew how to pray. It is a very surprising thing to me. I had a lot of joy this morning. I kept redirecting my focus to joy, praise and thanksgiving throughout the day. Not the easiest thing I have done.

God is doing a work in my life right now. It is so amazing.

My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed. And my tongue will talk of your righteous help all the day long, for they have been put to shame and disappointed who sought to do me hurt. – Psalm 71:23-24
