I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.– Psalm 34:1-3
Let me boast in the Lord! Let me sing praises to His name! By His outpouring of grace I have been saved! By His grace my mind made new! My desires changed to long for His will and good pleasure; My goals to be approved by Him! My heart seeking Him in the early mornings when I rise all through the nights- evident when sleep evades me and earnest prayers fill my time!
Let me boast in the Lord! Let me sing praises to His name! He never left me! His patience so sweet as His grace sanctified me! Slowly the old habits, thoughts, strongholds, and rebellion were replaced by a hunger for His Word and a surrender to His way! Freedom! Freedom found in submission to the risen King- Jesus Christ!
Let me boast in the Lord! Let me sing praises to His name! He increases my faith as I trust and obey! I stand in a swarm of bees untouched, without fear- impossible before I was redeemed by Christ! I cry aloud in the streets the law of God and way of salvation with not a second thought given to how I might appear- A blessing to appear foolish for the sake of advancing the Gospel! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God!
Let me boast in the Lord! Let me sing praises to His name!
