Day 282 - Worship

This song is one of my favorites. I find myself singing it in the car as I drive to work... or as I drive home after a long day.

It fills my heart with joy when we sing it at church, and I almost always get a little misty eyed when it's sung.

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"


My God is awesome and mighty. He holds the world in His hands, yet He cares about me. 

He cares that I long for a house. He cares that I'm disappointed. He cares that my heart aches for the next step...

And He cares about me enough to not give me everything I ask for.

God has not changed, even though He sometimes answers my prayers with a big ol' no. So I will continue to worship and praise Him for the amazing, just, kind, and loving God that He is.

I am thankful that God sees me; really and truly sees me... for the good and the bad... and that He still loves me any way.

I am thankful that He knows my heart and is actively working to grow my heart for His glory and my good.

I am thankful that I worship a God who is worthy of praise through everything that happens in my life.
