Thank you Lord

Lord You seem so far away. A million miles or more it feels today.
And though I haven't lost my faith, I must confess right now that it's hard for me to pray.
But I don't know what to say and I don't know where to start.
But as you give the grace with all that's in my heart.

I will sing.
I will praise even in my darkest time through the sorrow and the pain.
I will sing. I will praise.
Lift my hands to honor You because Your word is true. I will sing.

Lord is hard for me to see all the thoughts and plan You have for me.
But I will put my trust in You. Lord will meet Your guide to set me free.
But I don't know what to say and I don't know where to start.
But as you give the grace with all that's in my heart.

I have heard and sang this song for a million times but it was only this morning that it had given me tears. I honestly don't know what to pray for and say to Him in terms of petitions but I know I just want to praise Him and thank Him for everything, for His love, for rescuing me and for recharging everything in me that needs to be recharged.

His love gave me energy and happiness today. Today, I feel really really great and I can honestly testify that I am different today compared to what I felt about myself last week.
Thank you God. Thank you Jesus.

I know what you are saying, I often think "what do I ask for" so I just pray for help and evil. Thanks for making me feel not so alone.

Never ever rely on pure emotions with your relationship with God for it will become an unnecessary crutch when you are farther down the road of your worship and praise. Just rely on God's promises for they are constant and will never change. Sometimes God takes away the emotional aspects of our praise and worship to see how we will react to that. We must hold on to His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us. And that "all things work together for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)We must hold on to God's faithfulness and never to our own emotions towards Him for they fluctuate. Thanks for the inspired post. God bless you always.
