I really love singing this song, just yelling out “Yahweh, great is your glory!” I hope you enjoy this song. It makes me think in the good or in the bad I will praise His name and give Him all the glory. Happy listening!!
We are all broken people, looking, searching for a way out. Sometimes we go through years of hardships and pain, questioning everything along the way. Did I do or say the right thing? But there comes a point when enough is enough and its like the clouds part and the heavens open up. At this point is when we surrender. I’ve been there, done that, felt that, and sought after that. At this point in my life with so much going on, taking punches and blows from every angle, I have come to my point of surrender. I’m done fighting the battle alone. I’m done being caught up in my feelings, relying on how I feel about this and that.I throw up my hands and say take the reigns Lord! Take everything and make it new and make it yours.
The Lord’s word is full of promises, made for everyday and days when you feel just like this. He didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of sound mind and that’s what its all about. Don’t let the enemy take your peace from you. The Lord loves you and wants you. I can sit here and tell you this all day and not listen to my own words.
I’ve found that you don’t have to be perfect to serve Him, you just have to be willing to lay down everything that hinders you from Him. I’ve fought so hard the last few months with myself and trying to be perfect in everything. I’ve realized there was and only will be only one perfect person and His name is Jesus. He suffered and was tempted in life just like all of us and He still did not sin. I am in need of a Savior, and one has already come! All I can say is that I will try my hardest to live a life like Him. I want His love to show in me and His light to shine in me.
On a better note, in the midst of all my chaos, I’ve started to pay more attention to the way God shows me His love for me and how He is working in my life. I silence myself at times and can still hear the still small voice. The other day I was getting aggravated because my 6 year old was talking non stop and I was about to tell him to please be quiet, and I heard God say ” Cherish this, it won’t be long until he won’t talk to you like this, he’s growing up” A few days ago I wasn’t feeling well and I told my children “Mama doesn’t feel good today so please be on your best behavior.” Immediately my 6 year old turned to my 2 year old and said “We have to pray for mama, pray for healing because she is sick and doesn’t feel good.” He then led his sister in prayer for my healing. These are just two things I’m sharing, they are proof that God is working in my children and my laboring has not been in vain. So if you have days like me where you feel lost, abandoned, or just plain hopeless look at the things around you. What things has God done for you that you have failed to recognize, He gives proof of His love daily!
2 Timothy 4:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it, KJVProverbs 22:6
My prayer for today:
Lord, please intervene in my life and the lives of those feeling like I do. Thank you for the life you have given and how You continue to show love and mercy without ceasing. Your promises are true, help us to cling to those promises, especially in hard time, Renew the faith of those who are lost, draw them close to you. Let your mighty hand reach down and touch us, covering us in Your peace. Let our lives reflect yours. In Jesus name, Amen
