In the morning it is stressful to get ready to leave the house for school and your job. After your working hours you need to quickly drop by at the grocery store, pick up the kids, fix a meal, clean up, go to a meeting or the gym, come home, take a shower, read your Bible scripture for the day and then finally get into bed an hour later then you’ve planned. Recognizable?
When I read the Old Testament stories in the Bible I see it like a movie in my head. As was the case last week when I was reading in 1 Samuel 25, the amazing story of Abigail. An intriguing woman.
Maybe you read my previous blog where I shared a personal testimony about the importance of praising the Lord. Circumstances can be hard and we don’t always feel like praising the Lord, but when we choose to praise Him anyway, it will lift us up. That’s the same with giving thanks.
