Thank God

See that title?  “Thank God” — that’s what I’m doing this morning.  It was good for me to vent out all of my worries here last night.  This morning I did my Bible study and went to church (found a church here in SC that I like lots).  Conveniently, the pastor taught about giving your troubles to God, knowing that pain and suffering are part of life.  Knowing that a life with God doesn’t mean we won’t experience those things – but instead assures us that (a) they are temporary and (b) we will never experience them alone. 

The song I sang this morning with gusto, and with my hands in the air:

I’m trading my sorrows
I’m trading my shame
I’m laying them down for the Joy of the Lord.
I’m trading my sickness
I’m trading my pain
I’m laying them down for the Joy of the Lord.

I tried to attached the video but it’s not working.  If you want to see it, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXi5iq1zAl4&feature=related.  God bless!

 

One response to “Thank God

  1. Amen…and thank God he understands sometimes we forget how to do this, or we simply don’t do it (give it all to Him), but he patiently waits and continues to give us new opportunities to turn our pain and agony over to Him. Have a great day!
