***For All Those Times***


For all those times You called my name
For all those times You whispered to me
For all those times I couldn't hear You
For all those times You still kept calling
Today, I give you PRAISE!

For all those times I thought I couldn't make it
For all those times I thought the end was nigh
For all those times I thought I would go hungry
For all those times I thought I'd be out in the rain forever
Today, I give you PRAISE!

For all those times I couldn't find You
For all those times I thought You weren't real
For all those times I prayed and You didn't answer
For all those times I asked and You said "No,"
Today, I give You PRAISE!

For all those times that I was afraid
For all those times I became as bold as a lion
For all those times I was humbled by You
For all those times You told me, 'Well done!"
Today, I give You PRAISE!

For all those times I searched for You
For all those times I found You
For all those times You let me walk
For all those times You carried me,
Today, I give You PRAISE!

For all those times I broke down crying
For all those times I laughed till I could laugh no more
For all those times I couldn't speak
For all those times I could finally verbalize my feelings,
Today, I give You PRAISE!

It's good to read new Psalms. I especially like the third stanza. That's a hard truth to accept when it happens, though.

Amen.. Ilove this..

As always I love your writings..
May God continue to grant you words of wisdom to spread to those who are thirsty.
