Pause and Praise

June 5, 2024

It’s mid-year. Where has the time gone? You have probably been busy. You may even feel overwhelmed. After all as women we feel that we are responsible for so much.  Yet many of life’s circumstances are actually out of our control.

I want to encourage you to pause and give God praise. Praise God that no matter what has occurred you are still here in June 2024.  There may have been setbacks, illness and money problems but you are still here.  What you planned for may not have happened- but you are still here.

You know who else is still here-God is. Not only is He is still here- He is still with you. No matter what you are going through pause and praise Him.  As you praise Him, you will feel His presence.  Your praise is an acknowledgment of His power and your reliance upon Him. Your praise will help you draw closer to God. Your praise will remind you that He can and will bring peace to any situation. 

Isaiah 41:10
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalms 28:7

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
