Great post Terrie. I remember years ago hearing a talk on praise. The speaker said that many people never get past "Praise you, Lord. Praise you, Lord." To say that is an exhortation to praise, not praise in and of itself. Its kind of like saying "Dishes, I wash you, but never actually washing them." To praise Him would be more like saying "Lord you are worthy, awesome in majesty and splendor." It would be to comment on His wonderful attributes and acts.

I like your comment on praising "Him in all circumstances, especially when you don't feel like it". Our circumstances never change who He is, He is always worthy to be praised, no matter what. We praise Him because of who He is, because He is worthy. I love the scripture in Habbakkuk 3 "Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior." You will know where your joy and hope lies when you are tested in this...but, oh, the breakthrough when the concept is grasped!

Thanks for sharing words of wisdom.

Amen Terri! Praise Him Anyway! I used to have a t-shirt with that on it. It was ironic That my ex came over (8 yrs ago) and terrorised me with a rifle for a night and half a day when I happened to have it on. I remember after the whole ordeal, looking down and seeing that. I definately praised Him. Thanks for reminding us to praise Him always! And I definately would have come to your ministry, if i was living there after that happened. So glad you're helping women! Blessings, Robin
