    Still I Will Praise You

    Still I Will Praise You

    When the thunder roars
    And the lightning flashes
    And the rains pour down –
    Still I will praise You

    When life doesn’t go
    The way I think it should
    And I sit and cry –
    Still I will praise You

    When evil abounds
    And darkness floods in
    And truth is hard to find –
    Still I will praise You

    When things don’t make sense
    And I feel so alone
    I will exalt and worship You and –
    Still I will praise You

    My Jesus

    My Jesus

    He died for me
    Upon a tree
    To bring me life
    To set me free.

    He bore the pain
    And all the shame
    To make me whole
    I’ll never be the same.

    He opened His arms
    With a heart full of love
    My precious Savior
    Sent from my Father above.

    His love is everlasting
    His mercies never cease
    He watches over me
    And brings me peace.

    What can I say?
    To this One who loves me so much?
    The One who redeemed me
    To be His own.

    Yes, He’s chosen me.
    I ask myself “why?”
    Yes, why me?
    A lowly sinner.

    WHY does He love me?
    HOW can He love me?
    Why does He care so much
    About me?

  • Scripture

    Psalm 91 NASB

    Psalm 91 NASB
    Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

    He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
    I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
    My God, in whom I trust!”
    For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
    And from the deadly pestilence.
    He will cover you with His pinions,
    And under His wings you may seek refuge;
    His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.

    You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
    Or of the arrow that flies by day;
    Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
    Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
    A thousand may fall at your side
    And ten thousand at your right hand,
    But it shall not approach you.
    You will only look on with your eyes
    And see the recompense of the wicked.
    For you have made the Lord, my refuge,
    Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
    No evil will befall you,
    Nor will any plague come near your tent.

    For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
    To guard you in all your ways.
    They will bear you up in their hands,
    That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
    You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
    The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.

    “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
    I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
    “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will rescue him and honor him.
    “With a long life I will satisfy him
    And let him see My salvation.”

    When You did awesome things for which we did not look,
    You came down,
    The mountains shook at Your presence.

    Psalm 115:1

    Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us,
    but unto Thy name give glory,
    for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth’s sake.

    Matthew Henry

    was made from the rib of man
    she was not created
    from his head–
    to top him
    nor from his feet–
    to be stepped upon.
    She was made
    from his side–
    to be equal to him;
    from beneath his arm–
    to be protected by him;
    near his heart–
    to be loved by him.
