I was going through a hard waiting period, and I asked God to help me know what to do, and I felt him say ‘30 days of Praise.’ Shortly after I was listening to a Christian radio program and the speaker was talking about a 30 day praise challenge they did which really helped them. I them stumbled upon this book – which was on sale – and I was certain I was meant to do this challenge.
Before this book, I really only reserved praise for church. I would thank God every day, but praise was once a week. This book changed my whole attitude to praising God. It really is the key to growing your relationship with Jesus. It helped me to wait better on God’s timing, and to trust Him.
Each day begins with a verse, followed by an invitation to praise God for some characteristic of His deity. Then you are invited to listen to a song or songs and sing praises to God. I didn’t like every song Becky picked, in that case I would sing along to one I did like. This is followed by prayer and then questions for you to ponder in your journal (you will need a separate journal for this.)
I fully enjoyed doing this challenge and recommend it if you want to get deeper in your relationship with Jesus. No matter what your circumstances, no matter if God feels far away, God wants us to praise Him, and this is a great way to start doing so regularly.
