Some mornings I wake up and I can’t wait to get into the Word! Unfortunately, that’s not the case every single day.
“I just want that one more hour of sleep!”
“I didn’t have time, but I’ll do it tomorrow!”
“I’m not in the mood.”
“I haven’t gotten anything out of it in a while, so I’m going to take a break.”
There are more excuses that we make, when we try to justify why we didn’t do our quiet time.
The same concept goes for worshipping. We may not always get the “goosebumps” all the time, but does that mean He doesn’t deserve our praise?
It may come from tiredness or laziness. It may go deeper; you may be depressed or struggling with your relationship with God. No matter the reason, the only way to combat these feelings, to get through the difficult season, is to press on anyway.
The song quoted it my picture is a song by Hillsong United. One of my favorite lines in the song is:
Even when it makes no sense to sing; louder then I’ll sing your praise.
It’s easy to praise Him when things are up and going your way. Do you praise Him at your lowest? Do you do your quiet time when you’re in the valley? Do you serve Him when you feel you have nothing to offer?
Declare it for yourself today!
Even if __________________________, I will praise you!
