The Eccentric Praise:


There's no one else like You
I get thrills when I call Your Name
At the sound of Your Name
I fluctuate between hot and cold.

I can't limit your definition
Neither can I know your boundaries
I know You're the Beginning and End
But I don't know where You begin and end.

You hold my heart in your hands
No matter the state of my heart
Whether it be crushed into a small frame
Or expanded into a voluminous size
You've never let go of my heart
Not even once.

You hold my adrenaline pump
Sometimes I wonder why my heart beats faster
Or why it slows down to the rhythm of night blues
But You're like the DJ who knows the right flow.

You've told me there is time for everything
And that You make all things beautiful in its own time
Your wisdom is beyond my understanding
Your design of the times and seasons is beyond beauty
I thank you for your allotment of the times.

This praise is eccentric because it is inarticulate
It is praise from the belly of a speechless person
I stand in awe of You
I am amazed by the works of Your hands
Even more so by the things that You're STILL going to do...

This is my early morning praise,
May it come unto You as a sweet smelling aroma...

This is beautiful Jaycee... This morning I had a dream... it made me realize that God is my ultimate defender when I have no defense... I woke up with a song of Thanksgiving in my heart... I wasnt even sure who sang it.. I had to google the lyrics... it was Smokie Norful's Still Say, Thank You...
You are so right... He is the Beginning and the end... the boundaries of which are unfathomable and in between is His Grace that see's us through... His blood that protects us....

Jaycee said...

Lolll @ Diamond and Remi. I sure do wish I had a gift...muhaha!

Remi...it's amazing what happens when we lose ourselves in PRAISE with selfless abandon!

Diamond...wow, "ultimate defender when I have no defense." I really LOVE that phrase! I'm going to start collecting new cool phrases like this each day.

Prettylyf...yayy, excited to hear from u. I'm as fine as can be *wink*

Simeone...lol, thanks. It really did come from my heart o. Have u ever been in a place where u felt like nothing else matters but God? Even the flames burning around us (last post) are not even close to being as important as the power, love, mercy, grace, and all other characteristics of God...

...though inarticulate you think, the right chord it struck.

Oh, He is the unquestionable One, Kabiyesi.

Jaycee u jst made me cry. I'm puttin this up on my wall.

Jaycee said...

Rethots...the Unquestionable One, I've gotta add that to my collection of Names of God. I remember when He spoke to Job out of the whirl wind..."where you there when I laid the foundations of the earth?" No, He cannot be questioned about why things are the way they are...still He reveals to us secret things that we must know. He is simultaneously a revealer of secrets and the owner of secrets...haleluyah!

TheLife...so be it...

Sele...I've been reading it again and again myself. We should always give Him an eccentric praise, no matter the circumstances surrounding our lives at the moment...He is a great God!

Rita...speechless, but moved to ACT. I like the sound of that place...lol. It's a good place to be...

Webround...thank u dearie...

My School Daughter...be lol-ing IJ...he he. I'm glad u like it...*grin*

Mz Dee...are u serious? Now I'm glad I was led to write this, because I know something shifted inside u. Thank God for His praise!!! Yay!!! :) *Hugs*
