A Big Praise to God

I want to brag on God. I have been struggling with some unspoken things inwardly in my heart. I was talking to my mom about it and she suggested that I just sit back for a minute a day and ask God to allow me to feel his sweet presence for just a moment. Thanks for the wonderful advice mom. I was taking a quick shower and listening to Pandora radio, and I asked God to let me feel him. The next song that came on the radio was “By His Wounds.” It’s a beautiful song and it is based on my favorite Bible verse of all time, Isaiah 53:5 (“He was pierced for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed). I felt God’s beautiful presence. The next song that came on immediately afterward was “Thy Will Be Done.” God was reminding me with these songs that He loved me enough to die for me and that he has a perfect will for my life. Thanks bunches to mom, Kathy Harrison for encouraging me, and the biggest thanks of all to my Savior, Jesus Christ for allowing me to feel you today and to hear you speak to me through song. Music is such a blessing from God and I am grateful.

  1. I love “By His Wounds’ too. Great song. God is so good to us. I’m glad you found the opportunity to praise Him. He is the God of miracles after all. Too many times we forget all the great things He has done for us. Praise the Lord for saving us—something we could not do for ourselves, even if we tried.
