Can’t Keep it to Myself
“Praise him for his mighty acts: Praise him according to his excellent greatness.” Psalm 150:2
“O Sovereign LORD, you have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand to me, your servant. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as you do?” Deuteronomy 3:24
“Let every thing that has breath praise the LORD. Praise you the LORD” Psalm 150:6
Basically all of Psalm 150
As I sit here wolfing down one of my brownies, I just had to stop everything and write. Boy are y’all lucky, rather the people at work, that I couldn’t find the lyrics to that song!! God is soooo good! I feel God’s spirit moving through me right now, I just feel like dancing and singing—but a mode of decorum here at work lol. When I thought about writing this earlier, it was only to celebrate the blessing of another year. One year ago I had a successful kidney transplant—I could have been dead and gone; but God favors me so I am alive, hallelujah! In spite of other illnesses and incorrect diagnoses, I am here and alive. I have been sooooo filled with excitement, peace and joy, today yes Glory! But God is not done yet! Another year to get right what He was trying to teach me last year… I got a nice bonus for enduring this last year to be received very soon! God does provide and He is faithful.
Sometimes you have to find that song or scripture, even a book that speaks to you, and praise God. Even if you can’t hold a tune, sing to Him because His ears are MORE than forgiving lol. God is soo good; there is nothing that He cannot do. He promises to sustain us through it all, and the only thing we have to do is let Him have control and do the driving. Yes that is hard, but think of how easy your life can be. Just take a minute to thank God for you’re simply being alive, like me. When all hope was gone, when my mind could not fathom what was happening to me, I just asked for God’s peace and it was done. Yes even in the times when I do not understand, when I want to just pull all my hair out and the only solution is crying, God is there. He hears our cries and when He can—that is if we step back long enough to let Him—He dries our tears and makes everything alright. Keep trusting God! I’m gonna praise Him now and continue to pray in the midst of happiness and struggles, because we must keep guard!
Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. James 5:13
