Every Praise

What do you do when you think you can’t go on and the waves just keep crashing without the one you love, your “person”, the one you could always count on, your hero and champion who was always there for you; the one you shared everything with, who was the physical to your spiritual, the peanut butter to your jelly that are better together, and the life you planned is forcefully cut down and your love ripped from your soul?

You either get bitter,

or you go to God and allow yourself to feel the deepest, rawest feelings that you think will kill you,

live in overwhelm

or overcome by giving everything to Jesus, the ugliness and beauty, the heights you shared and the depths you shared.

You get better when you realize in bringing the depths, heights, length, breadth of grief, sorrow, pain and suffering to God through Christ, you find that the Comforter is there and the Helper is there in the Presence of God. You find you don’t die when you allow yourself to feel the loss, God does dry every tear, comfort, bind up broken hearts, heal, deliver and set free, give strength in our weakness and gives hope when there is no hope or future that you can see, as you choose to praise God in the midst of the tragedy, trauma, shock, grief, sorrow, mourning, loss compounded by betrayal and lies and slander and character assassination from those who do not know or misunderstand out of ignorance or arrogance or not realizing they have aligned their minds with the spirit of this world instead of Christ.

You get better in Christ, with God, through the Holy Spirit and fire that is able to take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it to good

in every praise to our God above all gods, the Light that delivers us from the dominion of darkness, through our Father who pours His Love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and makes the Presence of God tangible and real to help us in our deepest sorrow for what was and could have been…

yet in every praise we come to realize that God’s plans and purposes for our lives are greater than the plans we had individually or as a married couple who had come through many a storm, the fiercest battles and attacks from all sides; obstacles, floods, fires, difficulties and so many who came to try and steal, kill and destroy what God joined together

no man could tear asunder

no devil could break apart

no demonic spirit could negate

a marriage consecrated to God

or a praying wife

so every praise is to God our Father now and is to come, grace upon grace and glory to glory,

the enemy is defeated,

Jesus is Lord and Savior,

God our Father and his Christ are on the Throne above the highest heavens and in God’s humble-hearted people who once were considered “not God’s people or beloved”

and

“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom” 2 Cor 3:17

freedom to praise him in the storm and in the peace that surpasses all understanding found only in Christ,

therefore every praise is to our God

Amen. All thanks and honor and praise and worship and glory and majesty and dominion and blessing and power is to our God, now and forever and ever, Amen.

    Thank God for Jesus who has overcome this world.
    In Christ we can have the Peace, the shalom, that is beyond our understanding.

    Very powerful and moving. Every difficulty can help us further our relationship with God if only we turn to Him for help and comfort. We do not need to understand His greater plan, we need to trust Him in everything, the good and the bad, and know that He is working for our highest good.

    Yvonne, your words have always brought us inspiration and wisdom, but now they also bring us strength and courage.

    May God sustain you in the hour of need, and may His Peace and Joy abide with you for ever more!

    • Thank you Christophe; your words were like balm coming from the Christ in you.
      Everything that the enemy meant for evil, everything the the thief stole, killed and destroyed, everything the father of lies thought would destroy me I have given to Jesus and our God and Father is turning it around for good beyond my understanding. The adversary’s schemes are just driving me closer to God our Father who supplies all our needs, more than we could ask or think. Holy Spirit is restoring what has been taken; the River pours into our hearts when we give our pain and hurt and wounds and broken hearts and cruel betrayals to God. “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted” “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit” “Jesus binds up the brokenhearted and comforts those who mourn; bringing beauty for ashes and a mantle of praise” “God keeps us in perfect peace when our mind is stayed on Him and we trust in Him” “God is my refuge and strength; my ever-present help from Above”
      The enemy is defeated in Christ, and Christ in us has the Victory now and always, the greatest gift beyond all comprehension. Taken by faith, we please our Father, and His delight is in us, and we lift our hands in surrender, and praise and worship, and give all thanks and honor and glory to our God Almighty. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come, holy, holy, holy! I thank God for God.

        I am so glad to read this. God IS the great comforter! He does not only meet our needs but goes way beyond our expectations. Therefore, we must ready our minds and our hearts to receive all the love and understanding God wants to offer us. I believe that God does not mean to hurt us or wrong us but challenges us so we discover new possibilities and rise to new heights that take us closer to Him and everything we truly are.

        You have taught me we are all one through Christ. So I want to believe the more we focus on the presence of Christ, within and without, instead of the absence of our loved ones, the closer we are to our loved ones through Christ! And I do not mean we shouldn’t grieve. Grief is a natural and healthy process. But I guess there is such a thing as “positive”, God-praising grief that makes us grow into self-realization, and “negative”, self-pitying grief that keeps our souls binded to worldly illusions.

        I trust you are on the right way and will find solace and renewed faith through all this 😉
