“Come, everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise! For the Lord Most High is awesome. He is the great King of all the earth.” – Psalms 47:1-2
These verses are great reminders, especially for the middle of the week, to help us refocus our attention and praise on the God of all creation. Whatever you may be facing this week, rejoice in the Lord always. We do not just have to wait until Sunday to praise God. We have the opportunity and privilege to praise and recognize him among our coworkers, neighbors and family today.
It was with heavy hearts Emily and I announced this past Sunday that we believe God is calling us to move back north at the end of the year. There are a lot of unknowns and changes for our family and for the HFCOG family, but we can still praise God even now. We can praise him because He is faithful and He is constant. He knows all and holds His children in His hand. As we praise Him peace and hope will overcome us because our focus moves from our situations and circumstances to His power and goodness. Let us lift up His praise, not only to get through this week, but so we can thrive through the rest of this week.
