Praising, I am praising, my heart is so full. When life asked me to walk with a heart of faith bolder and stronger than I had fathomed before, I stepped forward. I did not do it alone. I could not. The strength was not my own. Someone near to me said, “You stepped off of the cliff with one foot out!”. Thinking back, I know now that The Lord was holding the foot that stepped out. He had me all the while.
Our Savior is so merciful. I am in awe of the generosity of Grace. My heart is stretched and then stretched again just to receive all that pours in from His Love. Me, the one with so many words- rendered speechless. Just left with a song, left with armfuls of songs in my heart that have been singing to us all from God that calls to us of His Love. We can only sing the praise back with joy and awe.
Hear the Praise!
Wonderful Merciful Savior
Swept into The Mercies
Heart stretched like a sky bowl in horizon near bright,
Taken from east to west farther than sight.
Fullness increased by grace, Lord, with such might
Oh I here I do melt with praise and delight.
Leaning to fore with the increase of such view
All of the vastness arcs over and through.
Wonders and mysteries sparkle like eyes,
Gazing from heaven upon all of our lives.
Heart stretched like sky bowl in the horizon of You.
Swept into the mercies of Love’s deep imbue.
Carried into the drift of your All.
I answer I praise, I sing and I call.
