There comes a time when you need to praise the Lord regardless of the circumstances that you may be going through. Speaking from experience, there have been days that I have not wanted leave my home on Sunday morning because I knew when I got to church tears would flow and today was one of those days. Although there was no church service with a segment of worship and sermon, I had instead a Bible Study group with other women. It was one of those days where on and off through out the day the tears flowed with bittersweet memories of years gone by. It is on these days that I must get up, turn on the music and praise GOD as the tears flow out and down my face; especially when things are extremely difficult. Those are the days one must praise God.
There is a release of every emotion imaginable and for me the tears flow every time even when I am angry when there is music going I can release it through my tears as the music and when I can I will sing it out. It is at these moments I have been able to express my praise not only with my voice but also writing poetry. Its in these moments that I run to Jesus.
I need to praise Thee in the morning.
I need to praise Thee in the mid-day sun.
I need to praise Thee in the moonlight .
With all I am and all I ever will be .
I will praise Thee.
When the tears flows, I feel released
Knowing that HE is there.
