-Finding a praise daily and writing it down helped me see, not only how much I have to be thankful for and how much God does every day for me, crazy stuff, but it also helped learn more about who God is, and how little I know of Him. Praising the ways He showed up that day, made me realize the vastness of who He is and the vastness of reasons to praise Him.
God taught me so much about himself, His grace, His compassion, His splendor, He showed me how little I know of His love. He taught how much He shows up in my day unnoticed and the many different parts of who He is that are scattered throughout the day. He taught me how much His creation praises Him, and how important praise is in my relationship with Him, how beautiful it is.
There were days it was hard, where I didn’t feel worthy to talk to Him, to praise Him. But God showed me that He is always worthy of praise and thus it is foolish to think that because of my failures, He wouldn’t get praise.
I don’t know of anyone that was impacted by it, but I hope that as I continue to do it, I’ll be able to share what God is doing with others.
Praising God at night before bed, was so humbling for me, many times I end up going over my day and feeling bad about myself, or sorry for myself. Refocusing on Him every night helped me get away from that and see that no matter what happened that day God is good, He is compassionate, and He is always worthy to be praised.
