PostSubject: A Psalm Before The Storm    Wed May 10, 2017 9:30 am

How shall I praise thee Lord?

Not proficient in either lute nor lyre

There is a slow burn within me

As if warmed by a cozy fire

It appears and draws near

Sometimes distant and I feel the cold,

When overwhelmed by fears

I pray when prompted

Pray when it is the last thing I want to do

Find strange comfort in being assailed

More ill at ease when all seems to be going too well

I will praise Thee Lord

In fair and in foul

Praise Thee…

When head spins and body is wracked in pain

When unable to stand

Be at peace face down on the ground

With eyes closed depart…

On journeys with no end and no start

Heart will soar in you…

Surprised and amazed by the miraculous hidden within the mundane

Something a sinner such as I is not accustomed to

How shall I praise Thee Lord?

Effortlessly…

When submitted…

When accepting…

When releasing…

You are there.

Amen. There is beauty and comfort in complete and total surrender. There is something oddly comforting in being assailed......perhaps it is comfort in the knowledge that especially in those times our Father is greatly active in our lives providing help and comfort.

A Pastor friend of mine once said to me "if the devil is chasin' ya' it simply means he ain't got ya'!".

And it stuck!

Even the devil doesn't kick a dead horse Amen?!
