Praising God with each Step


"Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord, O my soul!  While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being."

Psalm 146:1-2

We just finished watching Nik Wallenda walk over Niagara Falls.  What an amazing thing he has accomplished.  But that wasn't what really blew me away.  I was the fact that with each step he made he praised God!!  All week Mr. Wallenda has been very outspoken about his faith in Christ.    This really got me to thinking...I should be praising God for each step He allows me to take in this life.  I need to be giving Him the glory for my life. 

I am blown away that ABC didn't block out everything Mr. Wallenda said about Christ.  I know it's live but there is still a slight delay. 

I  need to be praising God for more things in my life.  It is so easy to get caught up in the pity party when things go wrong.  It's also easy to be so focused on God in those valleys in life.  For me I tend to falter when things are going well in my life.  I'm amazed that God used Nik Wallenda to show me this.  Thank you God for allowing me to serve You on a daily basis. 

"Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him, all His angels;
Praise Him, all His hosts!
Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all you stars of light!
Praise Him, you heavens of heavens,
And you waters above the heavens!"

Psalm 148:1-4

So with each step God gives you please remember to praise Him with each one.

My daughter and my sisters watched with my parents at their house. His comments were what they shared with me later. Amazing accomplishment, beautiful testimony!
