Water on the floor?
One night I came home to a flooded bathroom and bedroom thanks to a busted pipe in the wall between my kitchen and bathroom. I surveyed the area from where the water might be coming, and low and behold, it was singing underneath my kitchen sink, behind the wall. Only the Lord knew how long it had been singing and spewing water. It was seeping out from underneath the baseboard in several areas.
Hurry, shut the water off to the house!
I turned the water off to the house and immediately started soaking up the water. It’s not as bad as it sounds. My throw rugs took most of the hit as well as my bedroom carpet.
I want to sing praises despite the flood.
I share this with you, not for sympathy or woe is me, but the next morning when I awoke, having not slept well, the only song playing over and over in my head was, “My Jesus, my savior, Lord there is none like you. All of my days, I want to praise, the wonders of your mighty love. You’re my comfort, and my shelter, you’re my tower of refuge and strength, let every breath, all that I am never ceased to worship you. Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing, power and majesty praise to the king, mountains fall down and the seas will roar at the sound of your name… I sing for joy at the work of your hands, forever I love you, forever, I’ll stand, nothing compares to the promise I have in you….. Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.”
Did you notice that? Nothing compares to our Lord.
Psalms 59:16-17, “As for me, I will sing about your strength; I will praise your loyal love in the morning. For you are my refuge and my place of shelter when I face trouble. You are my source of strength! I will sing praises to you! For God is my refuge, the God who loves me.”
Father, thank you for being our strength and refuge. There are days when it’s really tough. There are days when we don’t know what to do or what to say. Some days we feel overwhelmed. Thank you in advance for your presence. Thank you, Abba Father. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
