Praising in Every Moment
Updated: Jul 9
In the midst of my current season, in this valley I am walking through to get to my mountaintop, the one thing I have rarely done, and have struggled with so thoroughly, is learning to let go. I have been resistant to the idea that God knows better than I. Looking back at the past few years however, through a new lens that allows for better reflection, I realize the life I was living had me falling short, not living up to my full potential. I understand that the path I'm on, though at surface level seems rough, is serving a very useful purpose. It is an exercise in building faith. I look back and know that I have come a long way here in my travels. I am slowly overcoming my doubts, and I have some more ground to cover in this walk. I have decided to take the journey with God, allowing Him to guide my steps. I know today, that sometimes loss is for a greater gain. So with this newfound realization, I say this to Him:
In the valley, and on the mountaintop, I will praise you.
In lack and in abundance, I will praise you.
In sickness and in health, I will praise you.
In turbulent seas, and in calm waters, I will praise you.
In sorrow and in joy, I will praise you.
In loss and in gain, I will praise you.
In drought and in deluge, I will praise you.
In adversity, and in opportunities, I will praise you.
While walking through hell, and when my fingertips can grasp at the heavens, I will praise you.
In all these ways, and for the rest of my days, I will praise your name.
