Some of you may know that I have been pretty sick the past year. I have had 6 surgeries and 4 hospital stays since February of 2019! There were some times when I was lonely, sad, angry, depressed and in indescribable pain BUT God was still good! 

Now the devil would have you and I to believe that in the midst of our trials, storms, tribulations, or whatever you call them that God is not good. He would have us to believe that God doesn’t have our best interest at hand and doesn’t care about us, or he makes us feel like we are paying for some past or maybe even current sin. 

My Sister, the devil is a big, fat, Liar! It is in these times of turmoil, wether it be in your marriage, grief from loss, or whatever it is, God is Good and His mercy endures Forever. I, you, we have to be intentional about our praise! When I was in that hospital room I chose to remember God and His goodness. His faithfulness to His children (me) and how all things (even painful things) were working for my good because I love Him, but mostly because He loves me! Praising Him took me from pain to peace. Even today  I still have pain but my praise to God is greater!

Dear beautiful Sister in Christ, praise the Lord. No matter what it looks like, feels like, is like, Praise the Lord! Choose peace over pain be it mentally, physically, emotionally, or even spiritually! Be intentional in praising God through the storm! 

Love,
