Praise the Lord....

Easter Week

I was thinking about Palm Sunday today.

Matthew 21:6-11 “The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’
‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’
‘Hosanna in the highest heaven!’
When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?’
The crowds answered, ‘This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.’”

We know the story. A week later they were yelling for His crucifixion. The crowd sentiment had changed. How horrible!

But I am not sure I am much different. I would hope I wouldn’t be yelling for his crucifixion, but how do I know? I don’t for sure.  I know I prefer thinking I would be different.

How often have I said “Praise the Lord” when things are going great? “Praise the Lord”….great doctor’s report. “Praise the Lord”….incredible Biblical conference. “Praise the Lord”…..answered prayer.

But if there are rough circumstances in life….do I “Praise the Lord.”?

The doctor’s report wasn’t as I would have liked…do I “Praise the Lord”?
I did not get to attend the conference….do I “Praise the Lord.?
The prayers weren’t answered as I had thought they should be…do I “Praise the Lord?”

So as I concentrate upon Easter this week, I will examine my heart. I want to “Praise the Lord” in all situations, basically trusting Him 100%.

I know He loves me…He loves us friends!  Letting that soak in and envelop our hearts will take us to a place of total trust.  We have to trust Him and praise Him in all situations. But it is our choice to do so.

~Be Blessed

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
