Some things to remember, things that are very important and you will be so glad you have remembered them.

Happy moments, PRAISE GOD! Hebrews 13:15; "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name". What happens when we give the Lord praise? Our whole body feels the presence of the Lord. Our praises help us to remain happy!

Difficult moments, SEEK GOD! I Peter 3:11; "Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it". We must turn away from the evil things and do good, we must always seek peace and hold on to it. It is the evil things that will cause us difficult moments so remember to seek after peace and hold on to it. Seeking God brings us into the presence of God.

Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD! Psalm 29:2; "Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness". While we talk with the Lord in our quiet moments is one of the best times to worship the Lord. It is at this time it is only you and the Lord. Worshipping our Lord is when we are able to feel His presence.

Painful moments, TRUST GOD! Psalm 62:8; "Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah". We need to remember the Lord is always with us in our time of need, all we need to do is pray and trust in Him. When we have struggles of any kind we can be certain of God's presence. He will never leave nor forsake us.

Every moment, THANK GOD! Psalm 100:4; "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name". With every breath we take we should always be thankful and give Him praise and thanks. We should thank Him for His presence with us every day. Thank Him for what He is doing in our life and we should never forget to praise Him.

Who is God? He is God the Father; God the Son, Jesus Christ, the One that gave His life so that we might live; God the Holy Spirit, the one that leads us in all truth, Counselor, and guides us in our ways (if we let Him).

May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!

These are very helpful scriptures. God's word is so refreshing and helpful. We all need to know 'where' to look for our comfort on specific issues we are dealing with. Thank you for posting these.

Love you!

Lovely post Deane. I think I am going to print this out and keep it as a reminder, to always seek God is everything, sometimes when the bottom drops out of our lives we want to shake our fists in anger at God for why He that thing happen, but the hard times are as much of a blessings as the good times.

Blessings to you Deane.
