I often use the Psalms in my personal praise time. one of my favorites is Psalm 92 which begins with these words, “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.” (NLV) I love to begin my mornings by praising the Lord for a new day. I praise Him for HIs love and goodness . I praise HIm as I rise from bed that He has already gone before me into my day. When I lay in bed at night to go to sleep I reflect back on my day. I am a person who has struggled with anxiety. It’s easy for me to fall asleep worrying. I choose to fall asleep praising. when I find myself worried, I praise God that He is in control of the very situation I might feel worried about. I change my focus to how faithful God has been in the past and that reassures me that I can trust Him with my future. Often, I borrow the words of the psalmist, “You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done.” (Psalm 92:4 NLV) Using scripture helps reign in my worries! Give it a shot!
