When Life is in Discord, Praise Ye, the LORD

Too often in our faith we find ourselves spiritually lost. There are a variety of excuses we use – I don’t need to go through the list, we know it all too well already. Slowly and surely, we find ourselves out of touch with God, our friendships with others fall apart, dedication wanes and accountability disappears. Our spirit becomes lazy, tired, confused and eventually lost. Sometimes we can see the trial ahead of us, while others do don’t tend to notice at all until we have taken a spiritual inventory of ourselves. No matter how the trials come or how long they last, we can be confident and be relieved that the Lord remains ever constant and true. These characteristics of the Lord allow us after long periods of struggle and rebellion to come back to Him after repentance and be refreshed.

So do not fear the darkness that you may be experiencing or the trials that lie in front of you. The Holy Spirit will guide us back to the Lord and refresh and renew our faith again.

In times of discord, praise ye, the Lord.

Scripture Last Read: 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:10
