      "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End." Revelation 21:6 (NKJ)

      Last week an eighty-something-year-old beautiful woman of God reminded me of one of the keys to living a Divinely inspired life: praising God in the midst of the most difficult, unKingdom-like circumstances.

      At a time when she was feeling very stuck—hopeless even—she heard the whisper of God: "When you start praising Me, I will bring them in."

      "What am I going to praise You for?" she thought. "Everything I see is a mess."

      "For who I am," came the answer.

      She started doing exactly that: praising God for who God is, not for the circumstances she saw all around her. She focused on the character and nature of God, not the fragments of relationships and human emotions scattered everywhere. She started singing in the midst of her trouble and one by one God began to pick up the pieces ... God, our amazing, faithful God, proved true to the promise.

      Prayer: Thank You, God, for who You are: faithful, loving, patient, great, kind, compassionate, just ... I look to You today and I praise You for who You are. Amen.
