“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!
