One of the songs we sang today in church was Blessed Be Your Name. I was reminded that no matter what, through the good and the bad, we should bless God’s name. He is in control during every situation in life. Consider Job’s statement of faith after his entire family and everything he had was destroyed.
Then Job stood up, tore his robe and shaved his head. He fell to the ground and worshiped, saying:
Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
and naked I will leave this life.
The LORD gives, and the LORD takes away.
Praise the name of the LORD.
Job 1:20-21 (HCSB)
May my heart always choose to say, blessed be the name of the Lord!
