A tuning of the heart

“Come, thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy praise.”

The tuning of the heart–it is God’s work, but it is also mine. God works His will in me, and I am either soft and yielding or stubborn and hard.

My heart can be tuned to praise, but it is also true that praising God can tune my heart. It calls out in me the higher good, the nobler song.

It is, perhaps, the ultimate submission to praise God in the midst of personal trial.

There is a clarity in praise that scatters clouds, restores vision, and confirms faith.

On this Thanksgiving week, let your first thought be gratefulness. Let your first prayer be a whisper of praise. No matter what path you are walking now, find thankfulness.

Find God in every moment, in every bit of happy and in every bit of hard.

Praise will tune your heart.

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him For the help of His presence. Psalm 42:5

But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more. Psalm 71:14
