Although it is difficult when our life is turned upside down; when we become disappointed, discouraged, we need to set our face, minds and heart to trust and to have faith God is good and He is in control. He deserves our steadfast thanks, praise and worship no matter what we are going through.
This too is the sacrifice of praise.
The Sacrifice of Praise
The flower blooms even in the rainy day
They allow their life to be on display
And the birds continue to sing
Their sacrifice of praise to the Creator King
When the sun has hidden its warmth and the cool winds blow
Does this mean that man is forgotten in the land below?
Does his face need to be sad and his heart dark and glum?
Does he forget the goodness of God and all he has done?
The flowers and the trees and the birds are aware,
Life is a gift of love that the Creator shares.
Life has its moments when the sun shines bright,
And times of darkness where it’s easy to lose sight.
There are times of gladness and times of pain,
But the wise know God’s love and care for them remains
The angels marvel in delight
When one overcomes the obstacles and puts the enemy to flight
When they stand up tall and with authority proclaim
They’re God’s chosen and renounce despair in Jesus’ name
When they push back their shoulders and lift up their face
And bloom where they’re planted under the banner of grace
They too lift up their voices and like the birds they sing
An anthem of praise as they worship their Savior… Creator King!
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually,
that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
What a day comes when there is no harsh rain again;
When the joy overflows and it never ends.
