The reason I didn't post on Friday was I attended a Lauren Daigle concert that night. It was in one of the older, intimate venues in my town and it was a wonderful night of music and fun with my sister. This is one of my favorite ways to praise God, by listening and singing along with a favorite artist. I really like it when they throw in an old hymn that I know by heart. It is like combining church and entertainment all in one.
Many people wouldn't consider this as praise but if you saw the people standing with their arms raised to heaven, how could you argue that attending a concert isn't a type of praise.
Praise comes in all forms. I praised God tonight that my heater worked when I turned it on for the first time this season. I praise him when a car misses hitting me at an intersection. I praise him for giving me wonderful parents and a sister that is my best friend. I even praise him when I survive something difficult.
Praise isn't a one-size-fits-all proposition. I honestly don't think God minds how we praise him. We can do it for good, we can do it for saving us from bad. We can do it with 2,800 people in a music venue or in a car as you drive down the road. We can do it at the top of our lungs or as a silent prayer.
Just praise God for any and all of the wonderful things He does for you. I guarantee you it will have a positive effect on your life.
