My Lord...my Praise to Him...

There is peace in my heart when I think
of the lavish love of my Father.
Undeserving of such grace
He spilled all on the cross for me.

Do I really understand the depth, the breadth
this sacrifice so great?
Do I understand even one glimpse of
His mercy rolled up in that one act of death?

Yet peace still abounds in me
though I do not fully comprehend.

Childlike faith will sustain me in all things.
Little children trust the love and goodness
that flows from a parent.
How much more shall I trust my Lord?

Forgiveness is mine even when I fail at believing.
Is mine though I often worry and fret.
Is MINE, give GOD the GLORY!
He NEVER forgets.

So peace fills my being
sometimes gentle as a lamb,
other times in crashing waves overflowing
till I cannot contain the JOY it brings.

And I SHOUT in PRAISE to my Heavenly KING!

  1. Hi,

    My name is Jeremiah, from LIFE SENTENCE Publishing in Abbotsford Wisconsin. We have a small base of bloggers who review books for us, and after a few months of tweaking how our blog tours are run, we’re now ready to take it to the next level.

    If you’re interested in joining our blog tours, we’ll send you a monthly email featuring our upcoming blog tours (see sample: http://eepurl.com/3y1C9). If you like any or all of the titles, you simply request the books via a signup form on our website (http://www.lifesentencepublishing.com/blogbooks4life-request/).

    You’ll receive the book in a week or less, read it (of course : ), write your blog post about the book, and add a link to the book’s blog tour page.

    Note: We do occasional fun things such as coffee gift card giveaways to keep everyone caffeinated and to drive traffic to our blog tour pages.

    If you’d like to join us on our blog tours, you can subscribe to the monthly featured-titles email here: www.lifesentencepublishing.com/bloggers.

    Thank you!

    In Christ,
