In the valley on my knees?

Would it matter to you whether you were on the mountain top, or in the valley on your knees?  I wonder sometimes whether God would rather be praised when things are good or if things are bad.  I think maybe when God has us in a valley, He shows us that we need to praise Him above everything.  I forget that sometimes when i’m on the mountain close to Him.  I encourage you today that you would praise God wherever you are.  If you’re in the valley on your knees, you can only grow closer to God.

A Happy Funeral

Today was the day we gathered to honor a woman who was a huge blessing while on earth.  A woman who deserved to see her Maker.  A woman who knew she was Heaven-bound by the grace of God.  A hundred years on earth is many years.  She waited soo long to see Jesus and now she is at His side.  Singing praise songs with the angels and children of God.  In Paradise where she belongs.

I pray dear God, that i can make it too.  I have faith you died for me.  That you forgave me and i can live a victorious life.  I have joy in you.  Joy that will never fade.  Joy that grows with each new day with You.
