My Soul Has Been Anchored
(by Douglass Miller)

Though the storms keep on raging in my life,
and sometimes it's hard to tell my night from day.
Still that hope that lies within is reassured
as I keep my eyes upon the distant shore;
I know He'll lead me safely to that
blessed place He has prepared

But if the storms don't cease,
and if the wind keeps on blowing, (in my life)
my soul has been anchored in the Lord.

I realize that sometimes in this life
you're gonna be tossed by the waves
and the currents that seem so fierce,
but in the word of God I've got an anchor;
and it keeps me steadfast and unmovable
despite the tide.
But if the storms don't cease,
But in case the wind keeps on blowing, (in my life)
my soul has been anchored in the Lord.
my soul has been anchored in the Lord.

My soul's been anchored.
My soul's been anchored.
My soul's been anchored.

Billows may roll
The breaker may dash
I shall not sway because
He holds me fast
So dark the day
Clouds in the sky
I know it's alright
Because Jesus is nigh

My soul has been anchored
In the Lord

Psalms 4
1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.

3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

6 There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.

8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. :sleep2:

J Moss, "Praise on the Inside": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3qNWf4XyPk

there's a praise on the inside that can't keep to myself
there's a holler stirrin' up
from the depths of my soul
so excuse me if I seem a little giddy or maybe even strange
but praise is the way I say thanks

let it bring forth a sound from your voice filled with gladness
all ye lands make a joyful noise
and let the psalms of David live forever and ever
praise is the way I say thanks

I can do all things through Christ who strenghthens me... Philippians 4:13

It's not through my own vain efforts... to avoid temptation, avoid evil, avoid having my soul to be harrassed or stirred ... all I have to do is ask "Lord, please give me the strenghth." Like with Paul, God has the answer for any propensity to complain: "My Grace is sufficient" I love God for this! Praising His Holy name today....

Let's extend this praise thread @ Laela! :yep:

My favorite line, from my favorite praise song:
"If I had 10,000 tongues, I could not praise You enough, my Lord and my King!!" Hallelujah, Lord we give You the highest praise.

Psalm 126

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, then we thought we were dreaming.
Our mouths were filled with laughter; our tongue sang for joy.
Then it was said among the nations, " The lord had done great things for them."
The Lord has done great things for us; Oh, how happy we were!
Restore again our fortune, Lord, like the dry stream beds of the Negeb.
Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy.
Those who go forth weeping, carrying saks of seed, will return with cries of joy, carrying their bundled sheaves.
Amen!

Give thanks to the Lord because he is good, because his mercy endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of gods because his mercy endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords because his mercy endures forever.

Give thanks to the only one who does miraculous things

because his mercy endures forever.

Exodus 15

2 “The LORD is my strength and my defense[a];
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.


....

11 Who among the gods
is like you, LORD?
Who is like you—
majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory,
working wonders?

.....

18 “The LORD reigns
for ever and ever.”

2Sa 6:14-15 & 21-22

14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the LORD with all his might,

15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets.

21 David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the LORD’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the LORD.

22 I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.” (NIV)

My Lord Jesus,

Thank you for being there for me:

-You gave me joy when I was sad.
-You gave strenght when I was weak.
-You gave me food when I was hungry.
-You gave directions when I was lost.
-You gave me love when Men turned their back on me.
-You forgave me when I turned my back on you.
-You protected me and my children when Evils attacked us.

I will never let you go again.
You are my rock and I am your bride.
I will always drink from your well.

I will praise your name always.
I will sing your faithfullness always.

Thank God Almighty.

Amen

You deserve the glory and the honor
Lord we lift our hands in worship

There is no one else like You
There is no one else like You

:wiggle:Praising God today with my spiritual anthem.
I Won't Complain

I've had some good days
I've had some hills to climb
I've had some weary days
And some sleepless nights

But when I look around
And I think things over
All of my good days
Outweigh my bad days
I won't complain

Sometimes the clouds are low
I can hardly see the road
I ask a question, Lord
Lord, why so much pain?
But he knows what's best for me
Although my weary eyes
They can't see
So I'll just say thank you Lord
I won't complain

The Lord
Has been so good to me
He's been good to me
More than this old world or you could ever be
He's been so good
To me

He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnights into day
So I'll just say thank you Lord
I've been lied on
But thank you Lord
I've been talked about
But thank you Lord
I've been misunderstood
But thank you Lord
You might be sick
Body reeking with pain
But thank you Lord
The bills are due
Don't know where the money coming from
But thank you Lord

He has been so good to me
He's been good to me
More than this old world or you could ever be
He's been so good to me
He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnight into day

So I'll just say thank you Lord
I won't complain

2 Samuel 22

David’s Song of Praise

1 David sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered
him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. 2 He said:

“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield[a] and the horn of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—
from violent people you save me.

4 “I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and have been saved from my enemies.
5 The waves of death swirled about me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
6 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.

Laela It's ironic that I was on a personal praise & worship challenge last month! God is good all the time!!!

Thank you Lord for your word this past weekend...your word came alive in my heart and life! You are awesome and there is none like You.

I agree with PinkPebbles this thread has been a blessing to me. I thank you Laela for following the leading of the Lord in starting this Praise thread -when praises go up blessings come down. :yep:

I also thank all the sisters who participated for God used you! :bighug:

@InVue, @PinkPebbles, my heart is inexpicably full today and I thank God for His Presence. ITA the blessings come down, when the praises go up. Not necessarily always praise of thanks than praise/adoration of Who God IS. He just IS and always will BE. The Great I AM, through whom all things are possible if we only believe.

On one praise, I just broke down and bawled like a baby, knowing how good God is. On another noonday, thanks to a praise rendition posted by LatterGlory, I almost jumped outta my chair in my office. :lol: It's beyond emotionalism...just knowing.


... I'm still holding on to hear some testimonies from this 28 days. anyone? :look:
