Sad news this past week, with the terrible shooting at Parkland. At times like these, I'm grateful for prayer, and for the Sabbath, because I know how He can lift a heavy spirit. Adonai tells us to cast all of our cares onto Him because He cares for us. This includes our concerns for the stories we hear on the news.
One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Isaiah 61:3, where Adonai says He gives us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. I've found that praise and worship will lift one out of the deepest pit of worry, anxiety, or depression.
Give it a try. This Sabbath, turn on some dance music. Lift your hands and praise Him. Dance in your living room. Wave flags. Play your tambourine. If you don't have flags or a tambourine, please get one! You will be amazed at how your spirit will lift when you praise him with a flag or an intrument. The same thing happens when you lift your hands or dance in praise to Him.
This song, SHALOM by Ted Pearce, is a good one to lift your spirits. Listen closely to the words. I hope you enjoy it, and if you are weary and heavy laden, take this day to rest and give Him your cares. Praise Him most of all. I know you will be lifted and refreshed. One meaning of shalom is peace, and I pray for you to have that sweet, special peace, Gail-Friends.
Love and blessings to you all.
