I will bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his praise.
I live and breathe God; if things aren't going well, hear this and be happy: (The Message)
Praise-Approbation or admiration expressed; eulogy; honor; gratitude or homage to God, often in song; the object, ground, or reason of praise.
When things are going great, God is good but what happens when the tornado and the hurricane comes? We often times lose our praise, because things get so bad we forget how good God still is. In order to get through you have to praise even when you don't feel like it. Praise will confuse and drive the enemy away. The enemy may be on your job; in your house; sitting on the pew next to you. Let Judah(praise) rest rule and abide in your heart. Allow your lungs to breathe an overflow of unbroken, consistent praise. Pay homage and celebrate the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and you will silence the enemy.
PRAISE IS WHAT I DO, TO GET THROUGH!!!

"THEY THAT WAIT"
RUTH 3:18 Then Naomi said, "Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today." (NIV)
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (KJV)
I can almost imagine how Ruth felt while she was waiting for Boaz to return with an answer. She had met the man of her dreams, the person that would change her life tremendously. We must trust and wait for God's timing and Perfect plan. In this time of waiting God is pruning, purifying and processing. It is imperative that we allow God's Perfect timing to operate in our lives. We must learn to wait on the Lord and trust His timing and plan for our lives and situations. Waiting at times can be very irritating when we rely on our own strength. Stand still and know that God is All Knowing and has our best interest at heart. Don't allow your waiting process to inflame you for God will sustain you. Cease from personal efforts, be still and let the Lord's time take place. Although it tarry wait on it with faith filled expectation.
GOT A DATE, GOD'S TIMING WON'T BE LATE!!!!
Thought: Naomi and Ruth where women of great faith and virtue. I encourage you to read the book of Ruth when you start to feel weary about your situation. Let it saturate your spirit.

Pslam 127:1 If God doesn't build the house, the builders only build shacks. If God doesn't guard the city, the night watchman might as well nap. (The Message)
In everything we do we must seek our General Contractor(Our Heavenly Father). A strong foundation (God) is most essential . Any house(family, decision, mate) that is being built and does not include God will eventually crumble. In this season fleshly decisions are not an option. When God builds, you will stand when the storms come. If the Lord is not the Head the bottom will most certainly fall out. Allow God to build your house and be the watchman over your city, He is not sleep but awake and always moving.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION, GOD IS BUILDING MY HOUSE. LET HIM BUILD YOURS!!!!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
If your finances are funny try being a faithful tither. If you are not a tither then you are a thief. Try Jesus He will make everything alright. Please read Malachi 3:8-12. It will change your life, it has definitely changed mine.
