Say What? by Phillip Hazelwood; What does God want?
When troubles come, praise God. When sickness comes, praise God. When friends come, praise God. When friends go, praise God. When sorrow comes, praise God. When joy comes, praise God. When you hunger, praise God. When you are filled, praise God. When you need help, praise God. When you are the helper, praise God.
The point is this, in everything just be thankful and keep on keeping on. Grumbling, complaining, moaning and groaning only makes God angry. Faith and praise causes God to move on your behalf. Bellyaching causes Him to turn away from you. That is why King David got victory after victory, because he understood what caused God to help him.
Give God what He wants and He will give you what you want. God wants the praise and we want the victory. Refuse God what He wants and see what you get. Do what makes Him happy and receive His joy. Sing through the pain and sing through the tears. Praise God in times of great trouble and in times of great pain. God alone is our only hope, so we will praise Him until the end. What do we have to lose except the blues? The Gospel is hope and Good News.
Jesus is my Joy
