Welcome to the Journey of Psalms. Everyday for 50 days, and three times a day, will be a chapter of Psalms and you can post your feelings, thoughts, or comments about your walk with God in the journey of psalms. Psalms are uplifting, being poems they are wrote by emotions and passions. They relate to us for them reasons. I truely believe that if you do this 50 day walk with God, at the end you will be more spiritual uplifted.

Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
LAST DAY, LAST NIGHT, LAST ENTRY
As we say goodbye, this journal was meant to get you to praise your God more then ever. To draw your choser then you was 50 days ago. To read 3 easy chapters of bible a day, to praise God 3 times a day, to see others heart and despair and relate and grow from it. For your last night I just ask you to praise God mor then last time then any of the 149 journals before it. And I ask did this journey help you get closer to God?

Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.
LAST MIDDAY BREAK, this is another psalm of music and this one talks about dance. So, let's praise God with a big bang. Music moves you, as David dance to praise God, so should we. I'm challenging you today to get a stick and tie a long ribbon or scarf to it and dance to your favorite worship song. Post a video or blog your experince here. Did the movements bring more joy and praise then just humming some words to a song?

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.
LAST DAY, LAST MORNING. This psalm is about music, and you cannot help but feel joy when you read this. Praising God does bring joy back into your salvation. So for you last morning entry, read this psalm 3 times and praise the Lord!!!

Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.2 The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.6 The Lord lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.7 Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord.
This is a praising psalm, yet it also speaks to God's majesty, to his GODNESS. We forget how POWERFUL that God is because we forget he is a GOD. God is more then just a word, it's a action. God is the definition of the supernatural, impossible, creatingm powerful God. Tonight, praise God, but praise him for who and what he is. Not the little things or the tiny prayers. But praise God for his hugeness presence that he truely is.

Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul.2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth the prisoners:8 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous:9 The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.10 The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord.
The point of this blog, is to leave your testimony for others to read, and for you to contining give God your praise at least 3 times a day for 50 days. This psalm is about praise, Please just type your praise to God.

I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.9 The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.18 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.20 The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
When I read this psalm, to me, it is written as to convince someone to get saved. As in "this is God and this is what he can do for you" So as I read this, I had a new idea for your entry. I want you to choice at least 1 person who isn't saved, yet without naming them, and talk about how you can see God working in their life. Also write how you can see how this person can benefit even more if they would choice God. Use this as a practce, as if what would you say to them if you could.

Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.3 Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
How powerful is the last verse. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.I hope your day was filled with this much happiness. For God dearly loves you and he can give you any victory. Tonight, Are you happy being a Christian. What makes you happy?

Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.2 And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.6 I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.7 Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.9 Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.11 Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.12 And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
This seems like another Lord help me from my enemies psalm. However, look deeper into it's contents. This psalm is also a prayer to draw closer to God. Remembering God works in your life, is a tool in everyday Christian life we should use. Talking about about their spirit, It's more about their spirit then their problems. Thirsting for God, a desire to need God in your life to survice. You get spirituality dry, you die. What is your prayer this break to thirst for God for you to get closer to God.

I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
This is another prayer for escape, the world is against me, help me with my enemies. Yet, yet, yet...That is never true. The world isn't against you, most of your problems are not as bad as you think, and no one is against you as you thought. I say this alot during this blog, but be proactive in your Christianity. What problems are you facing in your life right now, and what can you do to feel better without changing anything but the way you feel about it. This mornimg set your writing in I'm going to be strong and not weak. Be proactive not defensive.

Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.s
To me this psalm is about praying to resist temptation. A prayer we need daily in our lives, when we let our walls down, temptations come in. The only defence is to stay in prayer at all times, and trying to get closer to God always. How do you deal with temptation, how do you prepare yourself to try not to sin, to be better today then yesterday. What is your plan of defense against sin?

Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.6 I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.7 O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.9 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
Durning this journal, a lot of the prayers/psalms have alot of the same themes. This is one that is repeated. Please help me God, the world and enemies are against me. But the thing is we are suppose to love our enemies and forgive those who trepress against us. This prayer asks for the Lord to turn their own traps and devices backfire on them. For a different spin, do you agree or disagree with this.

O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
This chapter is powerful because it is about God knowing every fabric of your being. What makes you think, what makes you like or dislike things. Yet, it is not about what God sees about us in lightness, the good. It's about what God sees in us in darkness, in the bad and the ugly. Even in our darkness, God is still with us, still knowing us, acknowledging who we are. Does that mean God accepts our sins? No, sin is sin and will always be not premitted. This isn't about judgment tho, this is about the true relationship between you and God, the clay and the potter, master and server, creator and creation. This morning, what are your thoughts on this blog.

Psalm 138King James Version (KJV)
138 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
How did your day go? Was it good and did you thank God for it? Was it bad and you need God to be closer to help you through it? Was it a backslidding day and you need God for repentance? Whatever, our life goes we need God in it to worship it. To always have a need and a desire for God. Tonight, just blog your worship.

Psalm 137King James Version (KJV)
137 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.4 How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
This psalm to me is about remembering, taking a moment in time to reflect on life, to laugh or to cry. Recall your most spiritual and happy experience with God. And Recall that experince to life now. Also, can you match that experience to a song?

Psalm 136King James Version (KJV)
136 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.4 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.7 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:8 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:11 And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.13 To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:18 And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:21 And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:22 Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.
His mercy endures forever. Mercy to us is simply forgiveness. We thanked God for forgiveness when we know we did something bad. Yet, imagine a life without no forgiveness. That everything you did wrong, even the slighest you would be punished for. A small white lie, you know, honey does this dress make me look fat? Or the accidently slipped of the tongue if you stumped your toe. Maybe a tad jealous of your coworker getting that promotion over you? I want you to start your day off, comparing how different your life would be, what would be different from that life from the one you live with forgiveness.

1Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of the Lord; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord. 2Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God, 3Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure. 5For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. 6Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries. 8Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast. 9Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. 10Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; 11Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: 12And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people. 13Thy name, O Lord, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O Lord, throughout all generations. 14For the Lord will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants. 15The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 16They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; 17They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them. 19Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: bless the Lord, O house of Aaron: 20Bless the Lord, O house of Levi: ye that fear the Lord, bless the Lord. 21Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
It's important for you to know that God created you, and that he may not be pleased with our sin choices, but it means he is pleased with us. Our dreams, ambitions, goals, he designed us with an incredible plan for us. The fact that God made us, means he loves you. He made you special. Give God praise tonight.

1Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord.
2Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.
3The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
Church is essential to our spiritual growth. We can stay at home and read our bible sure, but are we truely studing it when we use that as excuse to stay home? Because you need that knowledge of bible every couple of hours a few time a week, you need to hear them testimonies. Get your spirit growing by them warrior hymns. And if you are missing out, you are not growing in God. And not growing will kill your seed. A seed can't be content without food. So This Midday I offer you two more challenges 1, Invite someone to church, even if they say no, it's okay, you asked, you witnessed, you were bold. and 2, Go to an extra church service this week. Then write your experience here. Are you more uplifted?

1Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
In this life we get enemies, oh yes, we do. I think every Christian feels at one time or another that the world is against them. And people sing and write victory songs in Jesus, about Jesus being there for them and such. Great for them, however we can not let ourselves think it's okay to have enemies. Because if we feel like that then we are thinking badly about others. There is no love of God in thinking bad of other people, theres no good in I'm the victim, they are the tortorers. So tonight, whoever the person is, whatever is bothering you. I want you to challenge yourself and write 20 nice things about yourself to get your confidence back.

1 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions: 2How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; 3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, 5Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. 6Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. 7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. 8Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. 9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy. 10For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed. 11The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. 12If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
Before rest, I want you to consider what God wants from you. I recently learn that God wants us to be loud and bold. We have gone silent for far to long. Where is our shout, where is our stand, where is our voice. Where do we declare our faith? Where do we teach our spiritual values and to who? If only in the church then we are silent. Tonight, I want you to find your voice and declare your faith in God. Claim it and be fierce with it! Let tomorrow be the day becomes the day the world hears your voice for God. Write your voices here to prepare.

1 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
2Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
3Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.
We should always be mindful of our Christian like matters. No matter if we are eating or exercising, we should always be busy our minds for the Lord. We need to do this in practice until it's perfected in our daily lives. Today I have 1 of 2 challenges for you. Doing both would be awesome. First practice, if you are so busy that you can't stop to think about God doing your stuff then STOP, take a 5-20 minute timeout with just you and God, and get reconnected. Pray, read, study..Sometimes it's just stopping to say Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...Thank you God, Thank you God, Thank you God...Or if you can't stop..then do the second challenge. While you are folding your laundry, doing dishes, jogging, whatever it is, put your mind on God not what you are doing. I personally while I'm working at my job and imagining I'm preaching. Then write your experince here, Are you closer to God, trusting him more because you are putting your mind on him?
