Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

After yesterday's post and a good night's rest, I'm reminded that I'm not alone. God is right alongside me throughout this journey. I only hope that he can kick my butt into gear! I'm giving thought to seeking help in more ways than one, but like anything I do, I'll have to analyze it to death first. For now, I will be singing this song in the back of my mind. Click on the title if you'd like to listen.

by Matt Redman
Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name
Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's all as it should be
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name
Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

I've been loving that song too! There's another by Aaron Shust that is wonderful. "Praise you in this storm" by casting Crowns is really inspirational too. See you on Scrapjazz!
