Always worthy of praise

This week has been super rough.  When I go through hard times like this, I find it so easy to question God.  "Why me God?  Why this?  Do I really deserve this?"  Truth is, I deserve death.  If not for Christ, I would not be here.  And does not God, as my all-knowing Creator, know just what I need?  My only thought ought to be, "God, if You are glorified through this pain, then I will bear this cross."  I love this quote that reminds me that God wants my trust and praise at all times, not just when it is easy:

Is He worthy of praise only when His acts please you? His chosen way for you is always good and perfect and best. He is evermore worthy of thanksgiving and praise, even in the darkest times. Your trust in the dark so pleases your Heavenly Father. Your praise in pain honors Him.

Love you so much sis and I am praying for you and whatever has been going on and is on your heart. I love the quote you shared, it is so good to remember to praise God no matter what and to hold tight to Him in everything.

Give me a call if there is anything I can do for you or you need a long distance shoulder to cry on. :)

Thanks for all your thoughts, calls and prayers for me recently that really touch my heart and cheer up my days!

I absolutely needed to hear this. He does know exactly what we need. Why can't we trust that? I need to be knocked down a few knotches sometimes to better understand what my saviour did for me.

Oh what a great post! I have been feeling the exact same way. No matter what is going on, I will still praise Him. He is worthy of all glory, honor and praise. Thanks for the great quote. I think I am going to file it away somewhere.

Take care my friend!
Hope this is a much better week!
