Psalm 100:2

"Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs." NIV

"Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing." KJV

If we made a list of all the things we have to be upset about and a list of all the blessings we have, there is no doubt the list of blessings would outweigh the other. Why then, do we come to the Lord, heavy with burdens that we should have already given to Him, trusting that He is working them out. Do we have to wait until the answer is complete before we approach our God with joyful hearts and singing? Of course not! We can come to Him in full confidence that He is working out all our problems. All we need to do is come to Him full of joy, singing in our hearts because our God is faithful and will never forsake us.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for not using the faith You have given us, to know we don't have to carry around our burdens and approach You with heavy hearts. Give us hearts of joy and gladness, because we trust in You to take care of all our problems. Let us sing praises to You for the many blessings You give us each and every day. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

I have never thought of it that way, but you are so right, the list of blessings would be endless! :) Thank you for that reminder!

It definitely helps you through a bad time when you can sing about the joy and peace that God can and does give.
