praise

I just posted a blog entry about how I had an emotional day. I've been hormonal lately. Then as I was surfing the web, I started singing this song that we sang in church today. All of the sudden, I felt like the Lord was leading me to post the lyrics here instead of what I had originally posted. This is for someone out there who will read it. I'm so glad I can praise my way out of emotional darkness. If I just start to praise the Lord no matter what my circumstances - He always lets me feel His presence.

I Bless Your Name

In prisoners' chains
With bleeding stripes
Paul and Silas prayed that night
And in their pain began to sing
Their chains were loosed
And they were free
I bless Your Name
I bless Your Name
I give You honor, give You praise
You are the Life, the Truth, the Way
I bless Your Name
I bless Your Name

Some midnight hour
If you should find
You're in a prison in your mind
Reach out and praise
Defy those chains
And they will fall
In Jesus' Name

We bless Your Name
We bless Your Name
We give You honor, give You praise
You are the Life, the Truth, the Way
We bless Your Name
We bless Your Name

You are the Life, the Truth, the Way
We bless Your Name
We bless Your Name

Thank you for sharing. WOW. It spoke to me as well. It's a good reminder to me to "let go and let God."

actually, this is a great song for my sister, who is going thru a rough time and actually used the word prison to describe how she is feeling now...only problem is Satan has such a hold on her, she would run away before reading all the lyrics...so very sad.
