As I shared with you in this post....
Sometimes I just find myself in a rut. This past week was one of those times. I finally spent some much needed time with the Lord ... when the whole house was quiet.
Here is what He said to me~
Praise Changes Things~
Nothing pleases God more than praise as part of our prayer life, and nothing blesses someone who prays as much as the praise that is offered. I once received a great blessing from this while in China. I had recently received bad news from home, and deep shadows of darkness seemed to cover my soul. I prayed but the darkness remained. I forced myself to endure but the shadows only deepened. Then suddenly one day, as I entered a missionary's home at an inland station, I saw these words on the wall: "Try giving thanks." So I did, and in a moment every shadow was gone, never to return. Yes, the psalmist was right: "It is good to praise the Lord." (Ps. 92:1)

Just a little ways down the page .....
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercies,
To multiplied trials His multiplied peace.
Real JOY comes from Loving God, Loving others and Living fully...
Change your life and their life forever!
