Excerpts from the Inspirational Books
by Frances J. Roberts
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Rejoice in the Lord always, for as you rejoice and give thanks, you release heaven's
treasures and shower upon your head the blessings of a delighted Father. Nothing
so thoroughly delights the Father's heart as the praises of His children.

For praise inclines the heart toward gratitude, and gratitude nurtures contentment,
and you may know for a certainty that no fruit ever appears on the tree of
discontent.

So praise, My children, and never cease in your praising, for in the midst of it I will
manifest Myself, and you will understand that when I demand of you your praises,
it is for your highest good.

Out of praises come courage, faith, strength, optimism, clarity, and peace. Out of
praises come health and happiness and the soul satisfaction you seek in the world
and do not find.

Praise will transform the humblest dwelling to a hallowed haven. It will light the
countenance and make the plainest face beautiful. It is impossible for the person
who has learned unceasing praise to be a failure. God's blessing attends his path,
and God's Spirit rules his heart. He is eternally at peace with both God and man.
