Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights! Psalm 148:1
When you feel weak, take time to pray. When you feel lonely, take time to praise God for the things He has given. When You are angry, ask the Lord to strengthen your heart with love.
Wherever God leads you, be grateful, and you will know the encouragement that comes as a result of your faith and hope and trust in Christ.
Francis of Assisi exercised his gratitude and praised God even in difficult circumstances:
Sing a new song to Him,
Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
For the Lord is great, He is worthy of all praise.
He inspires us with awe,
For all that He is and does is far beyond all lesser gods.
Give to the Lord, every family, and all nations,
Give to the Lord glory and praise!
Give Him all the glory that is due His marvelous name!
To do this is to offer your bodies,
And to take up His cross for you,
And to follow His most holy commands, from now until the end (Psalm for the Nativity)
Turn your weaknesses over to Jesus, and He will provide the strength you need to finish the course.
Lord, I am weak, but I know You will provide the strength I need to finish the course!
