Living life as a believer is filled with ups and downs because we aren’t in heaven yet. I know, shocker right? The Psalms do a great job of showing how we can praise and give thanks through a variety of circumstances. I find that when I am going through it the most, those are the times I am closest to God.
How do you bring the sacrifice of praise?
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing”. James 1:2-4(NLT)
