4 “There I will go to the altar of God,
to God—the source of all my joy.
I will praise you with my harp,
O God, my God!
5 Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!”
What causes us to praise although there may be great sorrow attached? This is the thing that brings us close to God. His presence of joy consoles us in the place where we have given much to Him. -Teresa
