MY PRAISE MAY CHANGE
Praise and worship changes as I heal. Expressing gratefulness in prayer and song has developed into deep adoration for the God who has continually held me in His arms. Whether in the emotional state of joy or in sadness when thinking of where I came from...the tears may flow like a river down my cheek. If you see me as a flushed, wet faced woman, realize that this woman is still a child of Father God who wants me to run to Him for security. Could I even think to run anywhere else now? I am praying not.
Will everyone understand me? No. Are there going to be people who feel like I should “get over it by now”? Yes. There isn't a person who can talk me out of what I am feeling. My praise may soften or my heart might happen to become hard if I fall. If I stumble, God will raise me up and hold my cheeks in the palm of His gentle hands and say to my, “Don't give up. Don't give in. I am here.” I will continue to allow myself to be pliable in the potters hands. Jehova -Rapha, “The Lord that healeth” will fade the memory and make the bitter sweet become sweet again in Him. I am grateful that He heals me in body, mind and soul. I will praise Him in all He was, is and will continue to be.
Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with
loving kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth
with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Where do you stand today with the Lord? Is your life reflecting Jehova-Rapha in you?
