There is a song that I need to share with you. I don't know what you have going on with you but this song helped me so much during the hardest times that I have been through. I'm going to post the lyrics below. Don't be surprised when I'm singing it in a video. I'm trying to sing it through without crying but God is so good that I never make it to the end without crying.
There is something so special about worship. I Chronicles 16:23-27 says:
Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is also to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens,
Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and gladness are in His place.
Why praise the Lord? Because He is worthy to be praised. If you have a great friend and they do wonderful things and are really special, don't you want to talk them up? Imagine giving praise to God. He created all of our systems to work together within us. I mean, think about it. Circulatory, nervous, musculature, skeletal, reproductive, endocrine, and immune systems: they all work together. God made us, to have these incredible wonderful systems to work together. So just for making each one of us, He is worthy to be praised. You literally have to give credit to where credit is due. We need to give God praise because it is His due.
Imagine going through a hard time. Giving praise to God should be exempt. You don't even want to raise your head, can't even imagine lifting your heavy arms to God to praise Him when you're sad or discouraged. I advocate for praising God first before anything you do first. Try it. Cry, shout out with heaviness and despair. Whatever you are feeling at that moment, instead of saying what you think you want to say, consider the works of God, and give Him praise. Then let me know how it goes. I used this song.
