180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 172

I will not lie… This month has been particularly challenging.

But the word on Sunday was that I should command my soul and body to praise the Lord.

That’s what I’ve been doing and I works. For the duration odd worship, I feel neither frustrated or tired.

Everytime I worship God, I feel good.

Testimony on how my outlook on sadness has changed πŸ‘‡

Those who have been reading the posts daily may remember me sharing about feeling depressed. There were days when I wanted to cry and give up.

However, I was praying a few mornings ago and I started to reflect on how my life has been radically changed because of Daddy. In that moment, I realised that I had more to praise God for even while feeling depressed.

I’m not going to allow how I feel in this season to prevent me from worshipping the God who transformed my life in previous seasons (and who is still transforming me).

Don’t let how you feel now prevent you from singing to the God who has been working in your life.

Regardless of how long this feeling stays, I’m going to praise Daddy for making me a much better person.

So this song came to my spirit out of the blue:

Hallelujah, You have saved me
So much better Your way
Hallelujah, great Defender
So much better Your way

I just….whew… gosh man, Daddy is so thoughtful.

If you read the blogs on the previous days, you would know that I am going through a period of overwhelming sadness. This began about a month ago.

However, I got some direction after reading Psalm 61:So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.” David, when he was depressed, decided to sing praises instead of petitioning for help out of depression. This is what I started to implement. So imagine my state of mind when I looked at the lyrics below:

And all I did was praise
And all I did was worship
And all I did was bow down
And all I did was stay still

All I did was praise, worship, bow down, and stay still. I never tried anything outside of these. If you are feeling depressed, Daddy (God) is a great defender.

Focus on him instead of on how you feel.

He will save you.

Yow…. God is moving!

I love to see him working in the hearts and lives of persons. Seeing women being empowered and sharing their testimonies of being broken but made whole.

When I say Daddy cares about my heart and my life, he does. When I say he wants what’s best of us, he does.

I serve a God who doesn’t just care about getting praised, he also cares about the ones who praise him.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 90

Sunday is my designated day of worship in a building and with the church.

Today we look at a God that loves to be worshiped, adored, loved upon, told sweet things… However you want to say it, God absolutely enjoys praise and worship.

After all, many persons find pleasure in persons telling them “nice” things.

But you see, he’s not dependent on humans to give him the worship he needs and deserves.

God himself said that if we neglect/refuse to worship him, he’s able to give life to sticks and stones so that they will worship him. He’s also able to give life to dry bones and raise the dead. Why?

He enjoys and inhabits the praises of his people.

πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Daddy, you are a loving and patient father. You’re simply wonderful. I have no words to describe. You are patient with me. You are kind. You never let me feel forsaken and rejected. I’m treasured by you. πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 22

Right now, I have no story or wonderful moment to boast about God. I just feel a spirit of praise and adoration.

The name of Jesus… The only name by which men can be saved. The name at which every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that he is Lord. The name of Jesus is beautiful, and it is all I need today.

I hope you enjoy the song below. I was in my room and I started singing, and I went with the flow of how I felt. Many persons don’t know this but I write songs from time to time. They just sit there because I’m too shy/afraid to do anything about them but here goes. Title: “It’s just to call you by your name”.

I am MORE (Dub Poem)

Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives in the world.
I am not a likkle overcomer, I am more than a conqueror.

I am more, mi nah fi live inna sin
I am more, mi nah go trick mi bredrin
I am more, mi a go bless, not curse
I am more than ordinary.

Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives in the world.
I am not a likkle overcomer, I am more than a conqueror.

First Peter 2 verse 9 tell mi seh,
We are a chosen generation, we are a royal, holy nation.
We are more than ordinary because we are peculiar people.
We are peculiar people.
So wi praise must more than ordinary.
Wi praise must more than di usual.

Shabach don’ mean whisper, shabach mean shout
So shout yuh praise and praise di lawd
Praise him from di earth mek it reach to di sky,
Shout yuh praise to di Most High
Shabach don’ mean whisper, shabach mean shout
So shout yuh praise and praise di lawd.
