IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I love your praise. I love when you sing to me, when you speak my words back to me. I love when you tell others who I am and what I’m doing. Sing and share joyfully. It’s a double blessing. Not only do I find great pleasure in it, but get ready to feel truly alive when you do.
When you look at challenges in your life, don’t be overwhelmed by them. Life will continue to present obstacles. And doubt may creep in, but ignore the uncertainty. Instead, look to me. Review what I’ve already done in your life and in the lives of others. Read my word and be encouraged by my resume—it’s quite impressive. I am faithful and I am your heavenly father. Trust me and follow me. My eyes are on you. You are not alone—you never are. I will lead you today and everyday. I want to turn your predicaments to praise. Sing joyfully to me. You can trust me.
