Sometimes in the midst of life's everyday struggles, it is easy to lose sight of just what our Lord and Savior has done for us. I am more guilty than most. When times are tough and physical ailments challenge me, it is easy to lose sight of the promise. I read a passage in a book this weekend that brought this home to me. A character was talking about why people suffer physical ailments, particularly those that end in death. Another character offered this thought... God isn't glorified through the simple things... He is glorified when those suffering praise him at the point when others would give up.
I guess my take away is this.... it's easy to praise the Lord when things are going perfectly and it is much harder to praise Him when things are not. But it is those times, when our praises pack the most punch... for our Father and those who witness our walk.
