Have you ever felt trapped in a prison of circumstance? Life in this fallen world sometimes places us in uncomfortable or hurtful settings. There is one way to release our soul from the dark, lonely cell: praise. When we praise His name, we invite His presence to encompass us. When He encompasses us, peace that defies understanding descends. We are released from despair to a place of “it is well with my soul.” Sometimes there isn’t much we can do about where life takes us, but there is always something we can do about how we handle it. Will you pout…or praise?
