“I WILL bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1 AMPC

My niece exhibited strength only given by Holy Spirit, when she gave a tribute to her grandfather at his celebration of life service.  It was full of humor but ended tearfully.  Kathy, my sister-in-law, was seated beside me and was trying to hold back tears.  A praise song followed Kayla’s perfect eulogy.  I heard Kat begin to hum along.   A thought entered my mind. It would be difficult to hum and weep, simultaneously.  I began to hum along.  I began to quietly bless  God.  My spirits were instantly raised.  The joy of the Lord became my strength (Nehemiah 8:10) and He aided me in holding back my own tears.

I enCOURAGE you to bless the Lord at all times.   It will chase away sadness, sorrow and pain! Praise God!
