Matthew 4:9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."
This one seems very self-explanatory I know, but so many of us get caught up in the "stuff" of our everyday lives that we forget to do this! It's easy to remember to do this in hard times or when prayers are answered, but we should be doing this ALL the time just as we should be praying without ceasing!
My birthday was last week, so I used the whole week to spend extra time with my family. God showed me that I have A LOT to be thankful for and I realized that I need to start praising God and worshiping him more in my everyday life. If I start now, it will be so much easier to teach Sydney (my 7 month old daughter) that we don't have to wait until church Sunday morning to worship.
Think about all of the things you have to praise and worship God for and just do it! Ricky's blood cell count is in the normal range now, he will be able to see Sydney again this weekend, my nephew is turning a year old, and those are just a few of my praises this week!
So shake it down this week!
