Facing Difficult Circumstances? Try Total Praise

So many of us are facing difficult circumstances, a diagnosis of cancer, a divorce, a troubled teen or prodigal child, a significant loss….the list could go on.

And today marks another anniversary of 911. I remember it like yesterday.

Sometimes, words just don’t cut it. They seem too cliche. Sometimes, we just need to immerse ourselves in total praise. So today, let’s join the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir in total praise and allow God to lift us above our circumstances.

A few years ago, my husband, Norm, helped produce this video at the Angola State Prison in Louisiana with members from the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. It was so hot, you could melt. Imagine filming outside in August in the heat of summer in Louisiana! It didn’t matter, the presence of the Lord was so strong on that prison ground. The power of the praise lifted even the most discouraged. The men in orange were crying, raising their hands and moved by the Spirit. This is what God does when we praise him. It lifts us above our circumstances and reminds us He’s there.

For the next seven minutes, join the choir in total praise. Let His presence wash over your circumstances. If God can change the hearts of men sentenced for life or scheduled for the death penalty, if He can put hope back in New Yorkers after 911, He can lift you above whatever you face. Give Him the praise. Let’s praise Him!
