Oh Praise The Name

Oh Praise The Name Of the Lord Our God

So many times over the past few years I have not been able to express myself in written form. One night, in the depth of profound grieving, I turned on my phone to play worship music until I fell asleep.

It dawned on me…what if there were others like me, lying in bed, waiting for answers, praying, hoping, needing comfort…and could be ministered to by the same music I put myself to sleep at night?

Hence began my posts of worship music.

My brother passed away this past Saturday, January 9th. I may write more; I may not.  I loved him so. This is my song for you, Phillip. May you rest peacefully with God in eternity. I will see you soon.

One in a million

**As a footnote, I review some of my posts occasionally. I am reposting this for the person who may going through a similar trial right now. Can I encourage you to spend some time in Psalm 30? Sometimes the answer to our prayers comes in this lifetimes, sometimes in eternity. God does promise His peace, His comfort, His healing that is not like the world offers.  Take heart, joy will come.

    It’s such a beautiful psalm…. I usually have no trouble writing but lately I find it difficult and even blogging in general. There’s an unrest in my spirit right now and I’m not sure why. Part of it is I suppose that I’m having back surgery in a couple of weeks, but I’m not really afraid or anything…. there’s just something….. Diane

      I certainly understand having those periods. I will pray that you have peace about having the surgery, and that the Lord will direct you otherwise if this unrest in your spirit is a prompting from Him.
