I’ve been struggling with a number of things over the past several weeks. But I have consistently been reminded through Scripture or through loved ones that I need to trust God in the midst of what’s going on – and also that I need to be grateful and continue to praise God. The below poem is my heart’s cry in response to this. I pray that it will be worked out into my life each day as I seek to give my Father the praise that He is due, despite my circumstances.
I will praise you in the morning
When the sun does rise;
Praise You in the evening
Through the darkening skies.
I will praise you when I’m joyful
And when I’m feeling low;
Praise you simply because
You tell me to do so.
My God, I will praise You
When each need of mine is met;
And Father I will praise You
When the bills tempt me to fret.
I will pour our Your praises
When my family’s healthy and strong;
And still I’ll choose to praise You
When sickness lasts too long.
Jesus I will praise You
For all You are and all You’ve done,
And I will continue to praise You
Until into Your arms I run. ❤
