…we had human parents to discipline us, and we respected them. Should we not be even more willing to be subject to the Father of spirits and live?   Hebrews 12:3-11  There are more than enough times and situations that we can’t do anything about. Every time of trial has its duration, some far longer than others. Why not use that time to discipline our praise for God who has been far more gracious and merciful than we have been faithful?

Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
   and pay your vows to the Most High.
Call on me in the day of trouble;
   I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. Psalm 50:14-15
