“Do you want a deeper relationship with God?” “But how?”, we ask.

This is the reason why you would like to engage your next 21 days with this blog. When facing struggles or battles, let us first praise. Let praising God become both an act of faith and submission. Anyone can praise when the battle is over and won, but it is only by faith that we can we praise at the start.

Praise God before the battle is entered.
Praise God before you start your day.
