His praise shall continually be in my mouth. (Ps. 34:1)Does that mean I should praise you even when I don't want to, when praise seems unmerited or out of place? Sometimes praising God seems more than I can do!
I don't feel full of praise when the dentist is drilling or the doctor is probing; when there's been an accident or the washer overflows or the TV goes out after a storm or my head is pounding....Screaming? Yes. Crying? Maybe. But PRAISING?
But are those the very times I should praise you? Would praise put the incident in perspective and free my mind to hear you speak?
Don't let me wait until I understand.........Just help me praise and learn later.
