Psalms For Moms

"With my mouth I will greatly extol the Lord; in the great throng I will praise him."
Psalm 109:30

When something happens do you give God credit? Even better, do you give Him credit publicly? It can be hard and awkward to praise Him verbally around other people. But like with everything, it gets easier with practice. Just for today, find one thing to praise God publicly for. Share it with friends in a group setting. Call a friend and tell them what you're praising Him for. Put it on your Facebook status. This past fall I had a woman tell me she could never put anything about God on her Facebook status-- she worried about what her non-Christian friends would think. Well, they just might think about Him for the first time in a long time. You might just offer the hope they don't even know they're looking for, the difference they seek. It's one thing to quietly thank Him. It's another thing to praise Him within earshot of others. I need to work on being bolder about that. Maybe you're feeling like you do too. Let's start today.
Pin It!

I was reading Psalms running in this vein last night, and praising God for all he had done for me. Thanks for posting this and reminding me.

God woke me up at 4:30 am to pray this morning. I was asking him to speak to me, and I felt like one of things He was asking me to do was to be bold for Him on Facebook. This post, which I came across today through Proverbs 31, just reaffirmed it! Thanks for your wise words!
