Today is a hard day. I am facing many circumstances that I don't like. I'm left wondering why. When things are particularly tough, I don't always like my reactions....self pity, discouragement and confusion just to name a few. But, a wise man taught me that emotions are involuntary, instantaneous reactions. He taught me that I don't need to get hung up on them, but rather that what I choose to do is more important. So, I am choosing to bless the Lord. That is always a good response.
What is going in your life? What seemingly impossible challenges are you facing? Will you take some time with me and bless the Lord?
I love this song by Matt Redman, "10,000 reasons." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jYLTn4fKYQ
I've listened it to several times this week. But, singing along (in between tears) really does encourage my heart. I hope it encourages yours too.
