Bless His Name

I woke up singing this in my head several times in the night.  We sang this in church Saturday night.  That may be why it’s floating around in my head.

Bless His Name

Tony Sanchez

Come let us sing for joy
Let us shout aloud
To our King
Come let us worship God
Lifting holy hands
Bless His Name

Lord we come
To meet with you again
To worship with one voice
In adoration
You deserve our every praise
That echoes in this place
You’re the worthy one

Come let us sing for joy
Let us shout aloud
To our King
Come let us worship God
Lifting holy hands
Bless His Name

Lord we come with gratitude that flows
From deep within our souls, we rejoice in You
We will glory in Your name with a shout our lips proclaim
The praises stirring in our hearts

Come let us sing for joy
Let us shout aloud
To our King
Come let us worship God
Lifting holy hands
Bless His Name

Let every creature in heaven and earth below
Bless His name, bless His name

It’s rather odd to have this conflict going in my soul.  I firmly believe and want to sing these songs to God, yet I’m still angry with him over the miscarriage.  I am grateful for all that He has done, yet still angry for the one thing He didn’t do that I thought He should.

That’s why posts have been rather sporadic as of late, I’m struggling for words right now.

I am spending time in His Word, trying to read through the old Testament right now.  I’m in 1 Kings.  Samuel was interesting. Saul struck me as not too bright.  I lost count of how many times David had a chance to kill him, yet each time all he did was something that would cause no harm but prove that he had not taken a chance he had.  Each time Saul would bless David and leave for a season then get it in his head that David was out to take the kingdom by force and Saul would go hunt him down again.

I mean, seriously, how many times did David need to spare Saul’s life before he “got it”?

One other thing that stood out was how Saul referred to God.  When he would confer with Samuel, Saul always said, “your God”.  I don’t remember him calling God his God.  That may be the biggest difference between the first 2 kings of Israel.  To Saul, God was but wasn’t his. To David, God was his God, his Help, his Salvation.

God was personal to David.

God is personal to me, which I suppose is how I can love him completely and still be angry.

Is He personal to you?
