Can we plead to God? Can we offer our cries of need, concern or desire to our Father in heaven? Absolutely! Read some of the Psalms. Most of the Psalms begin with heartfelt, gut wrenching cries of need, however they seem to always end in praising God almighty. Proving over and over again that no matter what storm we may be in the middle of, we should always praise the Lord.

I know there have been times that I have cried out to God. Why does this happen to me? Why didn’t I get that promotion I wanted? Why did my grandfather pass away so early? There where so many others as well. If I could only go back and realize that God was in control and that I should have been praising him for all of the lessons I learned throughout my life. I can now see how some of those times helped to mold my personality and lead me down the paths that have now led me to where I am today.

Praise God in your everyday lives, but don’t let that stop you from questioning God. Ask Him about the situations you are in, ask Him why things are happening to you. Now that you have done that……listen! Listen to what He is telling you, what he is telling you through the problems and trying times you are going through. Now finish by praising God for everything he has brought you through and the things that will continue to help you with. Trust Him, He will never fail you.
