I Will Praise You

I wrote a song a few months ago. Funny, I was actually in the bath tub when God gave me this song. He really just put it on my lips. So cool! That has never happened to me before. And immediately, I got out of the bath and wrote it down because I KNEW it was a song from the Lord for the season I was in. It's so amazing that God can meet me exactly where I am and give me a song that uplifts me, comforts me, and encourages my attitude and eyes to be in the right place. Only God can do that. Any songs written by men tend to put more focus on yourself. Worship songs, written to God about God, put your focus in the right spot.

So anyway, I am so thankful for this song. It will forever be a treasure in my heart. I wanted to cry while I was recording it just knowing God's goodness over my life and what He has carried me through. He is SO good! Beyond measure.

We have been wanting to record it for a while now because both Will and I knew it was a "God" song. I think Will was more excited about it than I was :) (if that's even possible).

This is a DEMO song though. Just so everyone knows. I am fully aware that it is raw and not perfect... but, honestly, that's what I kind of like about it. What I went through was raw and tough... and you will probably notice that in my voice. Eventually we will record a full version of it will instrumental parts and everything.

I thought about waiting to just put the finished one up... but I thought, what the heck. Might as well share this song with people and maybe it will meet someone in a similar place that I was in (and still am walking through).

Here's the lyrics and song...

When I'm weary
When I feel I can't go on
and when I'm broken
When the chains feel too strong

I will praise You, I will praise You
In every circumstance
Your hand upholds me
I will praise You, I will praise You
Through every single storm
You are the lifter of my head

When I can't feel you
When my heart seems so lost
I know You're with me
Apart from You I have no good thing

Your love is good enough for me
Your joy will be my strength

  2. God is so good! How awesome He is that He surprises us with such wonderful gifts in the most unexpected moments (like a husband surprising you with flowers)! You are such an awesome, anointed woman of God! I love your spirit! Oh, and I think being a mother is your gifting! :)
