I Will Sing to the Lord All My Life

I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.
Although my words will scream for joy
and at times weep with strife,
I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.

 

You separated my life from darkness
to be a light for the nations.
I celebrate the wonders You have done,
recognized the lift in a soul's stagnation.

You know my wants and my fears;
You bring newness to what's damaged
Life cannot be without struggle and sorrow
In Your mighty hand, my tears vanish.

 

I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.
Although my words will scream for joy
and at times weep with strife,
I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.

 

Suffering is not sized by the mind, but the heart
One perceives You are hidden,
to the other, You compose a new start. 
Difficulties don't signify lack of faith or blessing.
You lift the weak to Your eyes;
be the link to our presence. 

 

I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.
Although my words will scream for joy
and at times weep with strife,
I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.

 

In the morning, You hear my voice;
You surround me like a shield.
Be my lintel and my doorpost
this broken soul, Your hand seals. 

You are the sound in my song
the purpose from these lips flowing
In the good and the bad
forever be this life's poet.

 

I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.
Although my words will scream for joy
and at times weep with strife,
I will sing to You, Lord, all my life.

 

This week, as I was spending daily time with the Lord, I recorded some piece of inspiration that aroused the moment - even if I wasn't sure why. There was just something that made me stop and ponder, a nagging emotion encouraging me to document the word, phrase, or quote. That often expected and desired stirring occasion wasn't provoking me, yet I continued to journal. Today, all of those words, phrases, and quotes have culminated here, reminding me of why I read them in the first place. 

 

Sometimes when we ponder the immediate word, it doesn't quite connect with us, but then the effects of tomorrow's illuminates yesterday. If we continue to be open to that message, we find those needed words in everything the Lord puts in front of us.

 

My inspiration from this week:

 

Psalm 104: 1-6, 33-34

Genesis 1: 1-5

Imitation of Christ, Book 3, Chapter 12 (Thomas Kempis)

A Little Daily Wisdom - January 9th (St. Teresa of Avila)

Jesus Lives: Depending on Him (Sarah Young)

Psalm 5: 2-6, 12-13

Exodus: 12: 21-23

Hebrews 2: 5-12

Psalm 98: 1-6
