The winds of change often blow through March. One day it’s sunny and 55 degrees, and the next day we’re running for cover from an onslaught of rain or snow. And it’s not just the weather that’s fickle either. I find myself dragging through gloomy days feeling unmotivated, dreary, and dreaming of summertime fun.

Welcome to Day 29 of our Lent Devotions! This week we are studying spiritual growth, and today we are looking at the power that praise can have in our lives. After writing this devotion, I am revved up and praising God! I hope this devotion sets you in an attitude of praise today! Just click on the link below to read today’s post.
As an added bonus, here is an oldie but a goodie song by the Imperials called Praise the Lord. Listen to it on YouTube. Even after all these years, this song is anointed and the words are powerful. If you need some encouraging, really listen to the words. My favorite verse says the following:
Now Satan is a liar and he wants to make us think
that we are paupers when he knows himself
we’re children of the King.
So lift up the mighty shield of faith, for the battle must be won.
We know that Jesus Christ is risen, so the work’s already done.
Praise the Lord.
He can work through those who praise him,
Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise.
Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
serve only to remind you that they fall powerless behind you
when you praise him.
