Oh, to Serve

today's reading.
Psalm 100:1-5    Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth...
Psalms 100

Psalms 100think about it.

the blog.
One of the first things we see in Psalm 100 is that we're to "Serve the Lord with gladness!" I totally agree but unfortunately I don't always hit that mark. There are just some days when I don't feel like serving with gladness. And every time that happens it's because my focus has shifted off of the Lord and onto me and my circumstances--Something happens that I wasn't anticipating and I let myself get overloaded, overwhelmed and consumed with life.

So what can we do to help us be more consistent in serving the Lord with gladness? Tami W.
