Praise is who I am: My reflections during my quiet time.

Praise is who I am. Praise is an act of worship to whatever it is that you serve. You can serve yourself and serve what your desires are. I want to serve God with all of me. I want to fill all of the plans and all of the desires that God has for me. You praise God with thanksgiving through your actions. Your actions of worship can be serving others just how Jesus served, or just worshiping at all times. I want to have a heart of worship. You receive a heart of worship when you decide that that you want to be an act of worship. I want my life to be an act of thanksgiving and a reflection of my gratitude. This means that in every situation, as of now I vow to myself, that I will praise God through the good and the bad, through the happy or sad. I owe it all to Jesus. I owe my life to him. He gave it all for me, he loved me through my brokeness and through my uncertainty. He loved me when I wanted nothing to do with him. He came to my rescue. I want to live for him, because he died for me.

 

“Praise is what I do
When I want to be close to You, 
I lift my hands in praise.
Praise is who I am, 
I will praise Him while I can.
I’ll bless Him at all times.

I vow to praise You
Through the good and the bad.
I’ll praise You, 
Whether happy or sad.
I’ll praise You 
In all that I go through
Because Praise Is what I do
Cause I owe it all to you

Praise is what I do
When I want to be close to You, 
I lift my hands in praise.
Praise is who I am, 
I will praise Him while I can.
I’ll bless Him at all times.

And I vow to praise You
Through the good and the bad.
I’ll praise You, 
Whether happy or sad.
I’ll praise You 
In all that I go through
Because Praise Is what I do
Cause I owe it all to you

Praise is what I do, 
Even when I am going through, 
I’ve learned to worship You.
Though my circumstance doesn’t even stand a chance, 
My praise out weighs the bad.

And I vow to praise You
Through the good and the bad.
I’ll praise You, 
Whether happy or sad.
I’ll praise You 
In all that I go through
Because Praise Is what I do
Cause I owe it all to you

 

Jerald update: Don’t know much, but thanks to his cousin Ally, I know that the doctors are trying to control his pain, and that he’s ready to be home. He’s had more family and friends visit.

  1. I am so sorry for this… That you have to go through this… I know you will be closer to God in the end! Thank you for encouraging me! I will pray for you and your boyfriend daily! May the God of peace be with you…… In Jesus, your sister in Christ- Kelli

    This post reminds me of David and the Psalms. David was constantly praising God in the midst of his trials and adversity. He knew that God is in control no matter what our circumstances may tell us. God inhabits our praises so keep on praising HIM and allow HIM to refresh your spirit, your hope, your strength and your joy!

  3. May the peace, love and joy of God be with you and your love Jerry, throughout this journey especially as you praise him through the difficult times. May the presence of his spirit comfort you at every moment. You will be in my prayers and happy that we have connected. Blessings

  4. I’m speechless…I really admire your faith. This is like a lump lodge in my throat (in a good way) and made me look at my life and my relationship with God. Thank you, Yanira. I am so glad you found me, so I can find you. It is a blessing for me more than you know. I’m grateful.

  5. All I can say is may The Lord bless you with peace and comfort beyond understanding, and help you through this storm. You are indeed a beacon! God bless and keep you and Jerald! In Christ’s love!
