My Life Sucks!Adeshola Ezeokoli
|The following is an excerpt from my book His Delight:31 days of Praise and Worship.
You may be reading this and thinking, my life is a mess, I have nothing to praise God for. Let me challenge you: you do have something to praise God for and it is just human nature to focus on all that is going wrong instead of even a few things that are going right. When I am in the dumps, I try to remember the smallest good thing that I have.
|If you are reading this, praise God for your eyesight. If it is being read to you, thank God that you can hear.|
|If you are in the hospital, thank God that you are conscious enough to read. If your marriage is in trouble, praise God that you even have a spouse.|
|If you are divorced, thank God that you will get a second chance. If you are a busy mother, praise God that you have children. If you have a home to live in, thank God for it. If you have a job, thank God for the opportunity to work.|
|If you are a pastor, praise God for the call on your life. If you were robbed, thank God that your life was spared. If you are bereaved or grieving, give God praise for the life that your loved one had and thank God for His comfort. My point is, if you look hard enough you will find something praiseworthy in your life and something to give thanks to God for.|
|In praising Him through the challenges, struggles and pressures of life, you will find that God will bring you to a place of peace and comfort. Apart from that, He will give you wisdom and provide you with solutions that can only be found in His presence. Praise Him in spite of your troubles.|
