Praise His name!

I love this text:

"For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name" (Hebrews 13:14-15, NLT).

Praise the Lord that this world is not our permanent home! There is too much heartache in this world to want to call it home. Every day, people are getting sick, losing jobs, or facing heartache. Praise God that heaven will not be the same! No tears, no heartache, no sickness, no death. We will ever be in the presence of God.

My praises

  • Hubby has applied for 130+ jobs. Surely we will hear something soon.

  • I received two checks from my contract job! I don't make much money, but it's enough to pay the internet bill.

  • My mom has lost 30 pounds so far.

  • I've been vegan for 16 days now!

  • Hubby and I are both healthy.

  • We have Bible study tonight.

May I ever praise God's name and uphold my allegiance to Him!

I love doing what you just did, count my blessings. My pastor always says that the Israelites always started sinning by being unthankful and ungrateful... It was always the beginning of each backslide.

I really do hope you see the Lord BIG TIME in all of this.

Good point! I hadn't thought of that. We're studying Israelite history at church right now, just finishing up the exodus from Egypt. I'll have to keep an eye out for the unthankfulness as we continue through Exodus.
