Praise the Lord.
Praise God in His Sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens.
Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness.
Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!
I look at it this way; even when it feels like nothing is going right, I still have Jesus beside me guiding me through. And I shouldn't be just in the habit of praising when things are going well; no, even when times are tough, it's probably because He's teaching me something that I need to learn. And lets face facts here- I'm pretty stubborn.
But even in the tough times, I have immeasureable blessings for which I give Him praise!
