Friday’s here and so is the Bible reading challenge summary for the week! The passages for this week’s reading have been continual reminders to praise God no matter the circumstances. I was also personally reminded to give thanks for the times you know he is working. Let’s check out the summary for the week!
I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. v.1 (Sorry for the error on the reference here!)
Continually. Working on this!#praisehimanyway
Praise him for salvation! When all seems lost and the world impossible to live in, praise God for salivation- an eternal home in heaven with no tears, no sorrow, no crying, no pain! #praisehimanyway#biblereading
I need God. I used to want independence and think I could do life with him in the background. But I’ve learned that keeping him at the forefront and remembering the praise he deserves is a much better way to live. The same holds true when giving him my praise daily. When I place praise as a priority, I find that when storms rise, I can praise him anyway. Still learning this concept but oh the joy it brings!! Thank you, Jesus, for saving me and giving abundant life to live right now, everyday, no matter the circumstances.#praisehimanyway #biblereading
David found that the older he became, the more he recognized his need for the Lord and the more he praised the Lord. Experience had saturated his soul with the evident need of the Lord’s strength. And so David praised him more and more. How I long to follow in his steps.#praisehimanyway #biblereading (PS: This photo backdrop is from the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo. The rainforest there is gorgeous!)
Living a life of praise is fresh, new and exciting every day because there is ALWAYS a reason to praise God!! I am still in awe of how he turned a situation completely around for me last week! And I’m excited to see what He does today. My eyes are focused on seeing his work. With me? #praisehimanyway #biblereading
For his name alone is exalted! (v. 13) When we set our hearts to sing his praise in the morning, it is easier to continue a life of praise throughout the day. For he alone is worthy! #praisehimanyway#biblereading
So I ask myself today: Am I faithfully doing what God has called me to do day after day? It’s easy to praise when everything is going well. But day after day when the Lord deserves our praise no matter what, commitment to our vows is required. #praisehimanyway #biblereading
I didn’t understand the role of the Holy Spirit in my life until just a few years ago. What a difference it makes to be aware that God’s Spirit is with us and that awareness alone gives us reason to praise Him! (There are two passages listed on the schedule today by accident. I’m taking it as God’s plan and reading both. 😊)#praisehimanyway #biblereading
Ok, Friends. This Bible reading plan to praise God no matter the circumstances has been one I’ll never forget. I’m thinking of doing it again in the future! Sorry for the delay in getting this summary posted. I was working away to prepare for a prayer journaling session on Sunday and got thrown behind with a few urgent issues at home. We’ll continue to work through this plan and I’ll be posting the new Bible reading plan tomorrow so that we can begin on Thursday.
Have a great week!
