This song has been ringing in my spirit all day. I’ve had to listen to it several times today and each time there is an excitement that rises from the depths of me. Why? Because I resolve to glorify God no matter what my life looks like. No matter what God allows me to experience, I WILL WORSHIP HIM!!!
I have been up and I have been down. I have experienced blessings and lack. But through it all I am still here to say with God I persevered. I am still persevering and pressing on in the things of God.
Once my brother in Christ told me that I was resilient.

I was going through a storm and it seemed like storm after storm was rolling through without a break in-between. And with each one I was hit hard and I cried for a short time, prayed and cried before God some more. But because of the hope I have in Jesus Christ, each time I was able to get up off the floor and face the trials with a smile on my face. Very few knew what I was facing, mainly just my brother in Christ who was and is a GREAT encouragement to me and my pastor.
Even now I take my issues and burdens to God in prayer, with tears in my eyes and a praise on my lips. Because I know that He is my true Comforter, Problem solver, Protector, Provider, my Everything.
Have you made Him your Everything? If you have not, try it, try Him…
