Delayed Praise

Praise God in Advance: The Fasting-Praising Connection

In DecemberI was shopping at a local warehouse box store. I went in specifically for paper towels. So I went to the isle were they normally are. No paper towels, but they have TP. I look around the corner and some folks are hanging out and talking. I joined in on the conversation. They were talking about this cheap paper towel brand. I considered getting some but opted for a big pack of napkins. 

Let me flashback: a month prior I was at the same store and they had plenty of paper towels. I was going to pick some up but we didn’t need any at the time. I thought I would not horde and leave some for those who needed it. So the next two times I have been there no paper towels. 

Back to my current visit. Once I left the paper isle and started shopping I went to the electronic section. As I turn the corner I see a package of paper towels and not the cheap kind. I stopped and looked around to see if someone had dropped it. One of the employees told me to take it if I wanted it. I pick it up and put it in my cart. I could not believe my “luck”. I giggle as I finished my shopping. I was the envy of the store. You see as  I think back this brand had to be sold out for a couple of days. There was no pallet or pricing where this came from. It’s almost like God placed it there just for me.

Later on I was taking to my Honey and told her the story. As I spoke the words I realized that this was a blessing from the Lord. I began to praise Him. 

My praise was “delayed”. God will take praise anytime we want to give it. 

It’s never too late to praise God for His goodness and blessings. So I encourage you to bless the lord with your praise no matter how delayed it is. 

One thought on “Delayed Praise

  1. So many times I’ve thought back to things that have happened that I didn’t think twice that if was at the time, a gift from God. Thank you for the reminder that’s it’s never to late praise God, even if it’s later down the road when an old memory runs through our minds, we can still praise God for whatever that memory is and also praise him for allowing us to have memories 🙏

    Y’all have a good safe day!
