I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. This is also Day 5 of the Write 31 Days challenge. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “praise.” We would love to have you join us.
How does one praise God in the midst of loss and grief?
The truth is that it is difficult to praise God when we want our friends and loved ones on this side of heaven with us. But what I’ve learned is that God often finds a way to show us hope so we can praise him.
Songs sung and lifted to God in a brewery in Wisconsin. A special Beer and Hymns for our beloved Ben. A fitting tribute for a man who loved music.
Grandkids singing Jesus Loves Me as they say goodbye to their beloved Grandpa.
I’m reminded of one of my fave Scriptures Psalm 30:5 “Weeping may come for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Joy that gives us the strength to praise God even in the most difficult times.
Praising God isn’t always easy. But God surrounds us with community to praise for us when we can’t praise for ourselves.
