In the days of our lives, we’ll enjoy great blessings
…many milestones and life’s big successes.
Then praises to the Lord will rise up from our hearts
for the Father who loves as He blesses.

And while these precious times give us reason to praise,
our hearts need to praise God even more.
For that praise and worship melts the heart like wax
as we honor the One we adore.

During times of confusion and the uncertainties of life
we praise the Lord with a clarity that’s real.
Because He’s the greatest source of wisdom and knowledge
and that surpasses the way that we feel.

Through times of deep trials when the pressure is high
we look higher for the strength to get through.
There in our tribulation we worship with purest praise
giving Glory in the hardest times too.

In times where the waiting seems almost unbearable
because what we desire the most…isn’t here yet,
We pause to look at God who knows the whole picture
and we’re assured that He never forgets.

During times of sadness, brokenness, and loss
we praise God with fresh tears in our eyes.
For the Suffering Servant lived a life on this earth
to be acquainted with our desperate cries.

The power of God isn’t greater in the good times
nor is it lesser when we live a hard story.
We praise God through it all….for His Sovereignty calls us back
to the Throne of His Unchanging Glory.

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place,
and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds;
and the cloud is not rent under them.

He holdeth back the face of his throne,
and spreadeth his cloud upon it.
He hath compassed the waters with bounds,
until the day and night come to an end.

The pillars of heaven tremble
and are astonished at his reproof.
He divideth the sea with his power,
and by his understanding he smiteth
through the proud.

By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens;
his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how
little a portion is heard of him? but the
thunder of his power who can understand?
Job 26: 7-14 KJV

...From the mouth of Job, who loses everything
precious in life, but chooses to
worship the sovereign God.
