” I have a Maker, He formed my heart
and before even time began, my life was in His hands
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls and He hears me when I call”
We often sing songs of worship even without meaning it. I was in that phase too, I enjoyed it for its music, its fancy words. But as life went along and I went through my mountain and valley deep gorge experiences, I found that I could sing loudly in my joy and celebration moments. But I realized I just could not open my mouth to sing in my times of loss, hurt and pain – it felt like a million strings pulling back to keep my mouth shut. I felt alone… I questioned “Why, Lord?”
People told me “Never question God!” I wondered, “Why not!” If God is my Abba Father, as His child, why can’t I ask my Heavenly father! So I did and I poured out my heart to him, my tears, my heartache. And He listened, and I knew it, I could feel it!
Slowly, day by day, I saw His grace, mercy and love enfold me and the answers to those prayers unfolded in ways I never imagined! I got answers to prayers that I never thought needed answers!
So if you feel as though some things are just too petty or personal to take it to God, your little heartaches, tears, disappointments or frustrations, the answer is simple: Take it to the Lord in prayer. You are special to the Lord, His anointed one, the apple of His eye. Whatever concerns you is important to Him!
Now when I sing, I sing from my soul…because I know, understand and experience every word I sing. I sing even when its really hard for me sing because I know My God is way above all of my difficult and impossible situations!
Remember this, no one can complete you or make you content, except Jesus. He gives you His love, joy , strength and peace unlike any other, that you can stand strong on His Promises.
“His Promises are Amen and Amen”
I leave you with this promise as I hang on to it dearly and claim it everyday. This was my New Year Promise I received on a promise card. It got reconfirmed twice on the same day through the message that day and the days that followed!
Joshua 1: 5, 9
V5.. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, So I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
V9. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid;do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
