Challenge Accepted… Challenge Complete!

It’s Day 31!!  Yay!!  The Devil has tried (especially this week) to steal my joy and make it hard to praise God… but God is too good to not be praised!

Things I have learned from this challenge:

1. I genuinely love to write… but it is hard, yo!  Especially 31 days straight!

2. I genuinely love to praise God!

3.  The more you look for reasons to praise the Lord, the more you see Him moving in the little details of your life.  And it feels super good to know that He cares that much.

4.  When you look for joy and thankfulness, reasons to praise God, you end up having an all-around jollier disposition.  And others notice it too!!

5.  Despite the fact that my preferred way to praise Him is through music, I have become quite comfortable praising Him in other ways.

6.  Publicly praising the Lord gets people’s attention… and you discover you are not alone!

7.  The Bible is full of God’s promises… more and more reasons to praise His holy name!!

8.  I am truly blessed, folks!  In millions of ways!

9.  The devil does NOT like when we praise God… but if we commit to praise Him always (even in the trials), you will be blessed and the devil will be sent running!

10.  God is good, all the time.  He is good whether I am praising Him or not.  He is amazing and worthy of our praises all. day. long.

  1. Congratulations on completing your 31 day series! I took on this crazy challenge as well, and really learned so much through the process. (Remind me to send The Nester a thank you note.)

    Stopping by today from Barbie’s where I was blessed to link up after you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 😉

    • Thanks for stopping by, Lyli! Congrats to YOU, too!! I am crazy exhausted, but looking forward to future posts next week! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Amy! I am coming over from Weekend Brew.

    I am so impressed with your daily blogging this past month. And what a blessing it has been for you! Thank you for sharing your insights with all of us. I do think that when we speak about the Lord, he brings others to read and be lifted up. I am so happy for you that you feel so loved in your efforts.

    Peace to you!
