I figure if He can rejoice over me with
all of my shortcomings, that is something
to praise. He is someone to praise.
Second Corinthians 12: 9 says, “And he
said unto me, My grace is sufficient for
thee: for my strength is made perfect in
weakness. Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities, that the
power of Christ may rest upon me.”
He truly is a wonderful Savior,
Creator, our dearest best Friend, Provider,
Comforter, and Shepherd Who guides us.
He wants us to be trees of righteousness
that will glorify Him.
“To appoint unto them that mourn in
Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the
oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be
called trees of righteousness, the planting of
the LORD, that he might be glorified.” (Isaiah
Have you ever heard of this saying:
“Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s
nut that held its ground?” Well, even
when things are rough or kind of nutty,
you just have to hold your ground and
offer up the sacrifice of praise. His grace
will take care of the rest!
