I Try To Praise God Even During Life’s Storms

We are pressured in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:9

Have you had a time in your life where you thought, “God, why haven’t you heard me? Why haven’t you gotten me out of this place, yet? Where are you?”. Maybe you are in that place right now.

I know how you feel. I’ve been hard pressed to such a degree that I didn’t know how I could get up and move. Each day, I have cried out to God to resolve the situation, and yet, it continues going on.

Some days I’m better at it than others, but I’m learning to praise God no matter what the situation. It’s hard to do that. I fail. I try again.

The other day, I sketched picture the other night while thinking about the things that have happened in my life over the last few years. I was just envisioning storms raging around me,but when the winds calm down, I was not destroyed.
