Please Help Me

I woke up and it was darker than normal so I knew PHCN had struck. I looked to my side and saw my mgm sleeping soundly. I smiled. I got off the bed and walked to the windows. It was raining so the night was cool and a yummy blast of cool breeze fanned past my face as I opened the window.  I walked across my room to the door and over to my daughter's room to do the same thing and as I went, a whole chain of  thoughts just bubbled up and filled my spirit:

'Lord, I thank you so much. Thank you for a home that is so familiar that I can walk around in the dark and not bump into anything cos I know every turn and every wall. Thank you for the cool breeze. Thank you for the feeling of peace and safety I feel in this turbulent world. Thank you for  my mgm, thank you for my children. Thank you for new things, new feelings, new seasons, new life. Lord, you are just the best and I could roll from here to Timbuktu and still not do justice to how much appreciation I feel for you right now. You are the only One for me. My one and only PapaGod. Look, look at what you are doing in my life.....Just look!''

I cannot explain it but I was just filled and overcome with so much gratitude, I wanted to fling open the windows of my room and scream at the top of my lungs:

''My God is so good to me. Somebody! Anybody,  PLEASE help me thank Him!"

My God has been ever True, ever Faithful to me. He has made his word come true for me over and over. He led me to parts of his word I did not even know existed just to comfort me. Please help me thank him!

My God has fought for me when I had no fight left in me. He spoke for me when I had no words. He was my 'spine'  allowing me walk tall when all I wanted to do was slump around in tears.  Please help me thank him!

I did not see the clouds nor did I hear the sound of rain, yet I woke up and God had turned my dry land into a flourishing oasis. Ha! Jehovah, how do you do what you do? Only YOU are worthy! Please help me thank him!

My God has never turned his  back on me even when I felt he should just butt away and let me be! No, my Rock, my Strong tower, the Lifter of my head always had my back. Please somebody, help me thank him!

Huge burdens weighed me down and I asked God to please lift them off me before my next birthday. It was all my fault and I know God knew that BUT still he did it and my birthday is still months away! What a loving, caring, forgiving God we serve. Please help me thank him!
 
It is only a God like my God, your God; a God that is Love that is able to turn all your muck and make it shine. He alone can help you look at pain and see the gain. Oh, please, if you know what I am talking about, if you can relate to what I am saying, or with the feelings I am feeling, please help me thank him! 

As I snuggled back down to bed, as I closed my eyes, there was a song on the lips of my heart and its words are just the perfect reflection of how I feel right now:

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way,
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. 
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sun shiny day!

Hallelujah! This is my reality! The old, stale and bland is out. The NEW is here! For me! For You! If you believe me.....

Please, Pretty Please,  Help Me Praise God!!!!!!!!

  1. Thank you Lord for your mercies endureth forever. Our God is indeed faithful, He honors His word more than His name. He has done great things. I thank Him also for everything He is doing in my life and that of my family.

    1. God bless you Kafo, for coming by. I know. The word 'desperate' has raised so many eyebrows! Lol! But you get it right? I cannot see any other way to chase God cos being cool and calm and 'un-desperate' will not cut it in this world we live in. As desperate as I am, want to be, it is still a fight every day BUT I am winning cos I have a King living in me and I trust him to help to the end.
